Help Your Child Connect Math to Everyday Life

The next time you rely on your math skills in the midst of an everyday task, point it out to your child. For example, deciding how much to tip your waitress or doubling your kids' favorite recipe requires math skills. When your kids see what they're learning in school really matters in life, they'll be more motivated to tune in and do their best.
