Noting that students' homework provides an opportunity for families and schools to work together to help students be successful in school, this booklet, designed for parents, offers suggestions for ways parents can use homework to become more involved with their child's education. The booklet discusses reasons for assigning homework, including helping students learn better and faster, informing children of their school's high expectations, and helping students develop self-discipline and responsibility. The bulk of the booklet discusses ways parents can support their child's homework: (1) make homework a priority; (2) show interest; (3) know the teacher's homework policy; (4) help your child set aside studying time; (5) work with your child to pick a study spot; (6) eliminate distractions; (7) help your child keep track of each day's assignments; (8) check your child's finished homework; (9) help your child develop a study plan; (10) teach your child to ask questions while studying; (11) make sure your child understands assignments; (12) help your child with time management; (13) learn how your child learns; (14) help your child visualize success; (15) emphasize the importance of hard work; (16) help your child study for tests; (17) give honest praise; (18) help your child work through confusion; and (19) remember whose homework it is. Finally, the booklet discusses what parents can do if their child is having problems, when they no longer understand their child's homework, and when homework involves a computer and the parents do not own one.

The Everyday Mathematics (EM) program was developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project (UCSMP) and is now used in more than 185,000 classrooms by almost three million students. Its research-based learning delivers the kinds of results that all school districts aspire to. Yet despite that tremendous success, EMoften leaves parents perplexed. Learning is accomplished not through rote memorization, but by actually engaging in real-life math tasks. The curriculum isn’t linear, but rather spirals back and forth, weaving concepts in and out of lessons that build overall understanding and long-term retention. It’s no wonder that many parents have difficulty navigating this innovative mathematical and pedagogic terrain. Now help is here. Inspired by UCSMP’s firsthand experiences with parents and teachers, Everyday Mathematics for Parents will equip parents with an understanding of EM and enable them to help their children with homework—the heart of the great parental adventure of ensuring that children become mathematically proficient. Featuring accessible explanations of the research-based philosophy and design of the program, and insights into the strengths of EM, this little book provides the big-picture information that parents need. Clear descriptions of how and why this approach is different are paired with illustrative tables that underscore the unique attributes of EM. Detailed guidance for assisting students with homework includes explanations of the key EM concepts that underlie each assignment. Resources for helping students practice math more at home also provide an understanding of the long-term utility of EM. Easy to use, yet jam-packed with knowledge and helpful tips, Everyday Mathematics for Parents will become a pocket mentor to parents and teachers new to EM who are ready to step up and help children succeed. With this book in hand, you’ll finally understand that while this may not be the way that you learned math, it’s actually much better.

Teachers view homework as an opportunity for students to continue learning after the bell rings. For many students, it’s often just the dreaded “H” word. How can educators change the way students view homework while ensuring that they still benefit from the additional learning it provides? It’s easy. Flip the learning! In Solving the Homework Problem by Flipping the Learning, Jonathan Bergmann, the co-founder of the flipped learning concept, shows you how. The book outlines * why traditional homework causes dread and frustration for students, * how flipped learning—completing the harder or more analytical aspects of learning in class as opposed to having students do it on their own—improves student learning, and * how teachers can create flipped assignments that both engage students and advance student learning. Bergmann introduces the idea of flipped videos, and provides step-by-step guidance to make them effective. The book also includes useful forms, a student survey, and a sample letter to send to parents explaining the flipped learning concept. You want your students to learn, and your students want learning to be accessible. With that in mind, read through these pages, flip the learning in your classroom, and watch students get excited about homework!
