Many parents are confused by the ways their children are learning math and are unsure how to help them. In this course, participants will have a chance to try out a variety of fun and effective ways of helping families (with a range of skill and confidence in math) to understand and get comfortable with the ways students are learning in the Pre-K - 6 classroom.
