Here are a few suggestions for talking about math with your kids.
· Practice telling time by considering how long daily tasks take and showing your child the times on a clock
· Count money. Clean out the car & count the money scattered around.
· Download a math app such as Mathemagica, Fluid arithmetic, Math workout, or Pick-a-path. Play them with or against your child.
· Bake cookies! (Or cook something) to show your child the different kitchen devices used to measure. How many ¼ cups can fit into ½ cup?
Middle School age:
· The above-listed math apps are great for older kids also.
· Consider reading “The Number Devil”(I have copies if you’d like to borrow it) – a book explaining all sorts of math concepts in a fun, dream-scene way.
· Show your child how to fill out a deposit slip at a bank.
· Discuss how sales tax is calculated
· Next time you eat out; have your child calculate the tip without a calculator. (Tax times three is approximately 20%)
· If you're going on a trip, discuss how to calculate gas mileage and approximate how much gas you'll need for the trip and how much it will cost.
High School age:
· Encourage your child to work on their summer assignment throughout the summer and not wait until August.
· Look into colleges and careers. Make some college visits and discuss how much college costs and how to pay for it.
· Discuss how to maintain a household. How much does it cost to live on your own? Help your child create a budget.
· Investigate different careers and find the average salary for each. How much training and/or schooling is required? What is the job outlook?
· How much does it cost to buy, maintain, and insure a car?
For all grade levels, please encourage your child to attend summer math fun at Quaker Heights on Mondays from 1-2pm!
