Math Homework Tips
· All math work should be done in pencil.
· Students should show their work! If there is not enough space to show their work on the page, they should attach an extra sheet of lined notebook paper.
· Help set up a consistent organized place for homework to be done.
· Help your child establish either a consistent schedule for completing homework.
· Encourage, motivate, and prompt your child, but do not sit with him/her and do the homework with him/her. The purpose of the homework is for your child to practice and use what he/she has learned. If your child is consistently not able to do the homework by himself/herself, please contact your child’s teacher.
· If your child is struggling with a specific concept and attempts have been made, please do not continue homework to the point of tears and frustration. Write a short note to your child’s teacher so extra support or re-teaching can be provided.
If you are aware that your child is unable to quickly recite:
Addition/subtraction facts up to 12’s (Grades 2-8)
Multiplication facts up to 12’s (Grades 4-8)
Please make them practice these essential skills DAILY until they are able to do so. Mastering the math facts are a key component that will dictate the how much time will be needed for each homework assignment. When your child is struggling with the basics, it causes them to struggle through the more abstract material.
