Helping Your Child with Math

Beginning with basic number sense and arithmetic - addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division - and moving on to fractions and decimals, math teaches your children how to quantify and measure what they see in the world around them. These fundamental skills provide the building blocks for more complicated mathematics, such as geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.
