The role that parents, guardians, and
families play in student success in mathematics is as powerful as
that of teachers! Parents personal experiences, attitudes, understandings (and misunderstandings!) are often transferred to students. As your child's chief role model, you
can do so much to assist and support your child's learning of mathematics in
school. CMC wants to help!
The purpose of the For Families section of the CMC web site is to assist parents, guardians, and families in supporting student learning in MATHEMATICS. On these pages you will find articles and activities for download that offer practical advice and information for helping pre-school through high school students.
If you are a parent leader at your school, we encourage the use and distribution of these articles and activities in school newsletters and other publications for parents and families.
A great place to start is Math at Home, a short booklet published by the Sonoma County Office of Education. This document, written for parents and guardians of K-12th grade students, presents straightforward information, suggestions, and resources for those who wish to better understand the importance of mathematics and the role they can play in their children's learning of this critical subject.
