Math is a language, and the ability to use it fluently is valuable. From a parent's point of view, having great math skills should result in long-term benefits for their children. As shown here:
Excel Math is like a friend with a green thumb. We simply help to plant the math; someone else nurtures and waters the seedlings as they begin to take root.
Take some time over the holidays to talk about math with your kids. You can do this while shopping for a Christmas tree, or while doing the dishes.
How many plates did we use; how much does this pot hold; how long a nap should we take on the couch; which football games will we watch; how many floats in the parade?
How far did they fly to come see us? How many shopping days til Christmas? What good things can we do to help those less fortunate than we are - and how do you measure the value of good works?
Water those math seedlings that have been planted this fall!
