As our world becomes more technical, it is important that students are proficient in mathematics. Parents need to encourage their children and help them understand the importance of mathematics. Most importantly, children need to learn to solve problems, to communicate mathematically, and to understand how to reason. To help your child understand mathematics and develop confidence, you can provide support in the following ways: remind them that there are many ways to solve problems. Encourage your child to explore different ways to solve a problem. Wrong answers are helpful in understanding math because when a child understands why he or she made a mistake, then how to find the correct answer becomes clearer. Suggest that your child take risks and solve difficult problems. Be available to guide him or her when mathematics problems are hard. Practice mental math with your child because being able to figure out things without pencil and paper is very helpful. Teach your child how to use a calculator and other appropriate computational tools.
