Mathematical Reasoning
Make Decisions about a Problem
Identify relationships in problems. Know when and how to break apart problems.

Solve Problems/Justify Reasoning

Use estimations to verify results. Apply strategies to complex problems. Use methods to explain math reasoning. Express solutions clearly. Know advantage of exact or approximate results. Make precise calculations and verify result.

Make Connections
Evaluate reasonableness of a result. Note methods of deriving solution. Develop generalization of the result.

How you can help your child at home with Math.

Have your child use the date and figure out how many different ways you can express this date: 12th = 6x2, 363, 2x2x3,(2x7)-2, 15-3, 3+3, etc. Involve your child in activities like shopping, cooking or home fix-it projects to show them that mathematics is practical and useful. Use the scale on a map to calculate the approximate number of miles to a travel destination. Total the daily costs of a trip (for food, mileage, bus or train tickets, for example), and then determine the average daily expenses after the trip is completed. Ask your child what he/she is studying in math class, talk with him/her about mathematics homework, and help with school projects when it is appropriate. Have your child look at newspaper advertisements to determine the best deal (20% off or $5 off, for example). Using various containers at home, determine which one holds the most (largest volume) water, rice. etc. Play games as a family, such as games with a banker and games that require keeping score. Have your child be the banker/scorekeeper. Games require children to use strategies to make decisions, solve problems, and develop an understanding about numbers, how to use them (number sense) and computational skills.
