Helping Your High Schooler Learn Outside of School


1. Show your enthusiasm for your child’s study of mathematics.

2. Encourage your child to be persistent; make sure that he or she

knows that mathematics requires patience, practice, and time to think

and reflect.

3. U rge your child to ask the teacher questions either during or after


4. Encourage your child to review class notes every night. If there is

something he or she doesn’t understand, tell your child to look at

the answers and work backwards to determine how the solution

was found.
