At the following three sites, parents and caregivers can ask questions, discuss issues, and find out more about math education, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the NCTM Standards, and the Investigations curriculum.
The Math Forum's Area for Parents & Concerned Citizens
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Family Corner
CESAME Support Site for Investigations: Parent Discussion Group
The articles and information on the following sites are written specifically for parents and caregivers. The topics cover education in general and mathematics in particular. For instance, how do I get involved in and support my child's education? What do I look for in their math class? Many articles address helping your child with school, with homework, with math. Some offer ideas about doing math at home and activities families can do together. Others offer guidance in, for example, buying computer software that will engage a wide range of children in significant math thinking (or getting the most from the software you already own).
