Mathematics and Problem-Solving (5-18-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:        Mathematics and problem-solving are important activities.

PRACTICE:   Today, think about what mathematics and problem-solving you do in your daily life? At work? At home?

When was the last time you used math? Balancing your checkbook? Creating a budget? Measuring for new furniture?

When was the last time you had to solve a problem. List 5 steps you took to come up with a solution? Share those steps with your child.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
