Product Description
Kids are struggling with math in school, on tests, and with homework. Parents feel stressed, helpless, and math-phobic. They struggle to encourage and assist on the very subject they are least prepared to manage: MATH.

Broken down using straightforward, simple language, this guide offers parents who are easily intimidated by math instructive and handy concepts to use when helping their students with homework or studying for a big test.

Parents banish math phobia once and for all by facing math head-on in Math for Moms and Dads. Frequently, the issue isn’t “how to,” it’s actually “what do they want me to do?” Learning the language of math in context is the first step in the right direction for helping yourself in today’s math morass so parents can help their child find his or her way out of any math quagmire.

Using a similar methodology applied in SAT Score-Raising Math Dictionary, Kaplan now focuses on the parent in this no-nonsense guide to the lexicon of math. Math terminology and key concepts are defined and decoded into regular, everyday language to promote authentic understanding of what’s at the heart of any math problem.

Other helpful elements are sample problems (with answers, so parents won’t sweat it!) broken down step-by-step; calculator tips so parents can troubleshoot technology-related concerns facing their kids; visual representations of math for visual learners; and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards so parents can plan for what their children are responsible for in the upcoming grade and get the help they may need in the appropriate time frame. Finally, a handy timeline detailing which ages/grades kids need to know and master certain math skills helps parents understand the overall math snapshot for the middle school and high school years ahead.

Parents (and then students) learn how to kick word problems to the curb once they figure out how to simplify the language of math with Math for Moms and Dads' easy-to-follow lexicon and resource guide! ... Read more

Already being actively engaged in my child's schooling and "broader education," I did not find the chapter content in this book very enlightening. I did, however, make note of many of the additional resources this book cites, as well as get many ideas from the pull-out stories and checklists throughout the book. There are a lot of those, which almost made up for the deficiency in the practical guide part. If you are looking to enrich your child's math and science education at home, or trying to find ways to help out at his school, this would be a good book to refer to. Just check it out at the library. ... Read more

Product Description
TEACHING MATH TO PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME is the book that everyone has been waiting for!Now parents and educators can use this guide to teach meaningful math to students--with and without learning problems--who struggle with understanding computation, number concepts, and when and how to use these skills.

The author, an experienced educator, was inspired to write TEACHING MATH to meet the needs of hands-on learners after observing the difficulty her adult son with Down syndrome and his peers had in applying math skills to everyday life.

For years, the math program explained in TEACHING MATH has been successfully used with preschoolers, children, and adults with Down syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other cognitive disabilities.Its success lies in capitalizing on the visual learning strengths of these concrete learners and using manipulatives, games, and activities to teach and maintain motivation. A key feature of this method is the early introduction of the calculator, which allows students to progress in their understanding of math without having to memorize math facts.This book can be used to help students learn the critical math survival skills needed for living independently or help students in their math curricula at school.

Book I covers introductory math skills typically taught in preschoolor elementary school, but which many older students still need helpwith, including:

Number sense
Recognizing & writing numerals
Calculator skills
Place value

The second volume of TEACHING MATH will focus on more advanced math skills needed for independent living, including multiplication, division, banking, budgeting, and consumer skills.

TEACHING MATH gives parents and teachers high-interest, hands-on strategies and ideas for teaching math to learners of all ages. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to our homeschooling curriculum!
I am very happy that I purchased this book. My daughter does not have Down's, but she is hard of hearing and has Auditory Processing type issues. She is a very visual, hand's on type of learner and this book has been a tremendous help in teaching her math and general survival skills. It is worth every penny and has given me a wealth of information. I highly, highly reccomend this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book has some great tips on helping people with Down Syndrome learn math skills.This would be great for learners who have difficulty with traditional teaching.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good resource
I have been going through this quite exhaustive resource over the past couple days.It seems to be very good in content and I think I will enjoy using this with my daughter who has FAS.

The reproducible pages are great; however, I am finding it difficult to easily reproduce them since they don't lie flat.That's really the only qualm I have.It may help to also have this available in a spiral or binder format, to make the necessary reproducibles easier to reproduce!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Hands on Learners
I ordered this book to be able to work with a student who has severe brain damage and is not Down's.The activities are ones that would benefit all students, not just special needs.The activity on money and purchasing was really effective in helping my student understand the value of items and how to figure out change.

5-0 out of 5 stars Teaching Math to People With Down Syndrome and Other Hands-On Learners: Basic Survival Skills (Topics in Down Syndrome)
This is an awesome book! It gives you a step by step proven method that is almost fail-safe for teaching any concrete learner to understand math and math concepts. The only problem with this book is the misconception that the title relays in that it is not just for children with Down Syndrome. It is the method I use to teach all developmentally delayed children. I recommend it to everyone with children with delays. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Kind of helpful
As the book suggests, the book is geared for parents who want to teach their children math.It might be a good system for a home-school parent, but I find that since my 6 year old daughter is in 1st grade the lessons are going to be a tad different from what she's learning in school.Since she's having a hard time as it is, I don't want to confuse her further.

The book starts with some really basic sorting and describing games. It was really funny when I held the cat on my lap and asked my two children what I was holding and why it was a cat. They both liked that.But when I went on to ask them to describe a ball as suggested by the author they lost interest. I tried the same game later with my 4 year old son and a few different cups, but he became bored almost immediatly and told me he wanted to play that game "later".Not helpful.

I wonder if this book wouldn't be better had it been created as a workbook.The author assumes you have access to a photocopy machine to copy the pages in the book. Somehow I don't think photocopied, black and white drawings of pigs are really going to get my already-not-interested-in-math child interested in math.

I'm not sure if the author has children or has worked with children.It might just be that the author is used to working with kids who already like math and find it interesting. Or maybe his enthusiasm for math is contagious in person. I don't know. I do know that my own enthusiasm for math is minimal.I was hoping to find a book that would get both me and my kids into math. It hasn't inspired me and the excersises don't seem to be exciting my children. So if you don't find math all that interesting, and if the kids you're trying to teach are having a hard time with math, then this book probably won't be very helpful.

3-0 out of 5 stars More for the older child
I bought this book for my 5 year old- to get many fun ideas on how to introduce math to her, but was disappointed to find that only the first two chapters are devoted to that age group. It is more geared towards the 2nd grader and up. So until I can find a better book, we are just counting shells, beans and whatnot,adding and subtracting.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great idea
I read this book because, although I don't have any kids yet, I want to do some substitute teaching this spring.I thought I might be able to capture some of the fun that math games can entail.This book does the job.Bear in mind, these exercises are for YOUNGER children, up to 3rd grade or so.The authors are full of ideas, and seem to have a grasp both of child psychology, and the trials of parenting.The parenting part doesn't apply to me at this point, but I hope to be able to pass on some of the fun spirit these guys infuse their book with.

Hey, whoever is reading this -- you might want to think about sharing this book with someone in your life who couldn't afford it, when you're finished getting ideas from it.Or even more than one person -- go on a parenting listserv and talk about the book, and pass the word along.Maybe you have a poor cleaning woman who comes to your house, and only speaks Spanish.You could try to share a few of the games with her, if she has kids, and show her how her kids might benefit if she played these games with them.Think about it.It can only help. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great ideas! Consider tax preparation too...
What a great series to help kids explore their specific passion. Not just for individual homes, but this entire series would be a great set for any school or library.On career day or days where Daddy or Mommy come talk to the class about their profession, these books could be used to expand children's exploration.How about assigning each child an area of interest?Fourth and Fifth graders could do class presentations on a specific career field and dress up in the style of the particular profession.

Of course, these books can also be used for teens and young adults.Kids who like math will learn there are numerous job opportunities relating to math.

While numerous mathematical careers are mentioned, tax preparation is not.I am sure there are numerous other professions left out as math and money is an extensive area.However, since taxes are an essential part of any career path, I think this book, the Math and Money version of the series, should have included a mention of tax preparation.It can be a wonderful part time or full time job for anyone with a passion for both math and money.

This book and others in the series will help children identify exactly what their interests are and the many types of professions that one can choose to be successful in life.After all, the first step to being successful is choosing to do something you love.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas
Being a math major, I've found it tough to find a career where I actually fit in (besides teaching).This book actually gave me some great ideas.

2-0 out of 5 stars The focus should have been more on what you can do with a math major
I have been teaching college mathematics for over a quarter century, so I have passed many students out into the wild. With this background, I was somewhat disappointed with the contents of this book. From the title, one would assume that the subject is solely the careers that one can pursue armed with mathematical knowledge.
However, the first 95 pages are dedicated to the mechanics of searching for a job, activities such as how to write a resume, how to prepare for an interview and how to conduct a follow up. This is generic and has very little specificity to the math major.
The next section describes how to select a graduate school. I suppose this can be considered a job, but once again, the title refers to the career paths available to a math major. On page 110, the authors get around to describing some of the occupations that a math major can function in. My belief is that the authors should have skipped the first two sections and started here. The most likely reader would be someone considering a math major, not about ready to leave school having completed one. This could have been a much better and more focused book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Stating the Obvious
I felt that this book misses the mark. Most of the information is online, and the book does give many details about each occupation. At points it gets way too technical to be useful. It seems to have two audiences- high schoolers interested in math, and math majors applying for a job. The first group wouldn't be interested in the more technical aspects (resume-writing, for instance), and the second group will find this book to be too basic for their needs (they already know which occupation they want, hence them writing their resume for it).

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the book math majors have been searching for!!!!!!!!
As a recent graduate with a math degree this is the book I have been searching for.This is the only book you should need.It covers the interview, cover letters, resumes, networking and everything else. Allother books on this subject limit discussion to education majors and jobs. This book does the same but gives equal treatment to those who seek jobswith math as a primary skill.It has hints for everything you couldimagine.Gives lists of job titles and many job discriptions.Also givessome contact information for organizations that will be of help or interestto anyone looking for employment using their math degree.Once again, thisis a must buy!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book
As the parent of a 4 year old I try to incorporate math into our daily routine. This book gave some excellent examples and ideas for fun games and easy ways to incorporate math into our lives. I loved the chapter that discussed language and math. It gave specific suggestions on how to teach the language needed to understand math.

This book deserves all 5 stars and should be required reading for every elementary school teacher and parent.

5-0 out of 5 stars one-two, buckle my shoe
It's a real shame that this book is now out of print. If you have young children, and you can find a copy of this book in the used book store, buy it at any price. Kenschaft is a math professor whose daughter is also a mathematics professor. She gives incredibly useful advice on how to get your child interested in mathematics and drives a nail into the coffin of the myth that there is a "math gene", and that some (most?) people are simply genetically unsuited to do math. All too often the problem is that kids are taught that math is boring.

Why do so many popular nursery rhymes involve counting? Kenschaft points out that favourites like "one-two, buckle my shoe" and "1-2-3-4-5, I caught a fish alive" teach kids to count to ten. I never met a kid who didn't like nursery rhymes; Kenschaft offers reams of useful advice on how to kindle that spark and keep it alive.

As an aside, a really good companion volume to this one would be Sarah Flannery's "In Code - a (young woman's) mathematical journey".

5-0 out of 5 stars READ IT AND TAKE ACTION
If you have concerns about the ... math acheivements in our country you must read this book and take action. If you have kids you will learn that they depend on you to teach them in ways that their teachers may not even be capable or prepared to do.

Math is usually taught in such a way that it actually discourages kids from liking it, feeling competent in it or wanting to pursue it.

While the primamry focus of the book is Math, its principles apply to all branches of education and learning. Learn that there are pitfalls to standardized testing and minimal competency standards.

The book includes practical advice for parents on how to encourage their children to hone their math skills and encourage their analytical skills since their teachers may not be equipped to meet children at their level in order to fully communicate and cover a subject in depth.

Seems that many teachers are not prepared to teach math in successful ways. We must put the focus and resources intopreparing teachers in order to acheive the kind of results we want from their students.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book for parents wondering about 'reform' math
You've probably heard that youngsters who are anxious about math also do poorly in math. A lot of folks thought this was just because students with limited ability appropriately worried about the subject. Not so!

Just the other day I clipped a short piece that described a scientific study demonstrating that this "math anxiety" itself gets in the way of doing the math. The chicken that comes before this egg is not low ability but high anxiety. Finding ways to lessen that math anxiety can improve math achievement.

As a parent and as a math teacher this is important news. Many parents have worried about how they could help their children with math that is often very different from when they were kids. These studies tell us that we'd do better to try to find ways to turn a math "phobic" home into a "Math Power" place. Patricia Kenschaft's book is a wonderful blueprint for such a home 'remodeling' project.

The significant subtitle of this book is:

"How to Help Your Child Love Math, Even If You Don't."

There, as Shakespeare said, lies the rub. After all, most parents bring those same childhood math anxieties right up into their adult lives, right to the dinner (or homework) table. What Kenschaft does is to show you a wide variety of ways, starting even in pre-school, that you and your child can explore math in wholly new forms. You don't have to memorize the rules for fraction division all over again; you just need to find new ways of looking at math.

This book does the best job I have seen of describing the failings of the "old school" approach to math. It has an entire section entitled "Why so many children are damaged" including chapters entitled "How drill and kill cripples U.S. Math education" and "What every parent should know about testing and grading." (My only critique of the book is that this section is placed near the end of the book - you might read it first if you think that going back to the good ole days is the sort of change we need).

The book emphasizes the math of children up to about age 10 or 11, wrapping up with a chapter called "The Fifth Grade Crisis." I had never seen this term used before. But as a 6th grade teacher I believe she has captured an important soft spot in our math education system. Although the ups and downs of kids' math in school all sum up over many years, some important cognitive shifts take place as they open the door into adolescence. Fifth and sixth grades are often the place where they "decide" they are "no good" at math... decide they "can't do it". Kenschaft shows how much of that decision is just a reaction to some truly damaging practices in schools.

Kenschaft also encourages you to take a new view of your role in the school - beyond bakesales! She provides practical advice for you to become a school-math activist without being antagonistic. A chapter entitled "Getting along with your child's teachers" is full of good, practical advice. She concludes with a whole section about change entitled "Tweaking the Machine". Finally there are useful appendices and a great bibliography.

This book is especially powerful because it weaves the very personal with the broadly `political'. Its combination of practical advice with broad policy discussions is unique. If you are a parent wondering how to approach the troubling questions surrounding your child's school math program, at both levels, this book will give you lots to think about.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Stars and Two Thumbs Up!
When I think of Dr. Patricia Kenschaft, the first image that enters my mind is that of a Unicorn.Dr. Kenschaft is a unique person for which you would be hard pressed to find an equal.Her ability to teach mathematics to virtually anyone is only the beginning of her many special talents.I consider myself priveledged to have had the opportunity to study with Dr. Kenschaft in my time as a student at Montclair State University. Even if you are never fortunate enough to cross paths with a person like her, do read her book, Math Power.It will change not only your outlook on mathematics, but your outlook on many of life's other challenges. ...

I bought this book for fun ideas to hone my two kids' math skills.This book is wonderfully organized by math topic, and then gives you separate exercises within those topics for different grade levels (K-2 and 3-5).It's very easy to locate exactly what you're looking for without being overwhelmed.I've used it all summer and will continue to use it through the school year because the content is so relevant.This is by far the best book I've read on doing math at home.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I just started homeschooling a 5yo, and was looking for a way to teach math in an informal way. This book is exactly what I have been looking for. I can use real objects(cars, trains, blocks) for lessons instead of using 20 different types of manipulatives that other books recommend.

Product Description
CHILI HOT GMAT: MATH REVIEW will help readers develop the skills and mindset needed to score high on the quantitative section of the GMAT exam. What is this book¹s secret recipe? Each hand-selected problem comes with a Classification, Snapshot, and Chili Rating. Classification serves to identify each problem according to category or sub-category. Snapshot highlights why that particular problem was chosen, including the underlying problem-solving principle or strategic approach. Chili Rating helps candidates gauge the estimated difficulty level of a given problem. A single chili indicates that the estimated difficulty level of a given problem is "mild" (500 to 590 difficulty level), two chilies spell "hot" (600 to 690 difficulty level), and three chilies signal "very hot" (700 or above difficulty level). By studying problems of varying difficulty, candidates will learn to maintain discipline on easy but tricky questions and also to exercise flexibility when deciding on multiple approaches and time-saving shortcuts for use in tackling harder, more involved problems. ...
