Parent Resources

I’ve posted some specific resources for parents/guardians/caregivers here, including some really fabulous homework sites that move beyond using repetitive worksheets.

1. Doing Mathematics With Your Child, A Parent Guide (Ontario Ministry of Education)

2. Nelson Education Parent Centre – At-home activities and websites

3. Everyday Mathematics (University of Chicago) – What an AMAZING website and project! Here parents can find twelve math units (Wow!) to work on with their children at home for each level from Pre-K to Grade 6. Units are broken down into several lessons and the concepts are taught online. Study links and answers to questions are provided as well.

4. Making Math Magic at Home! (Queens University Faculty of Education, 2010) – Contains 124 pages of math activities to do at home with your child. There are even some activities in French at the end of the document!

5. Figure this! Math Challenges for Families (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics)

6. Math Online Dictionary – This online tool can be very helpful for both students and parents who are struggling to understand or remember the meaning of math terms and concepts.

7. From (see topic links below) – Worksheets, games, flashcards and a homework helper! This is an excellent resource to strengthen number sense skills through guided practice. I especially like the homework helper feature because it explains and demonstrates step-by-step how to solve multi-digit computations (particularly helpful with those who struggle with long division).

Addition                                               – Geometry

Subtraction                                         – Algebra
