Do’s, Don’ts for Parents to Help Teens Build Math Interest and Success

I really enjoyed reading this article: http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/high-school-notes/2016/04/11/dos-donts-for-parents-to-help-teens-build-math-interest-and-success

A summary:

  • Don’t project negative feeling toward math onto teens
  • Do talk to teens and teachers about what’s being taught in math class
  • Don’t be too quick to hire a tutor for struggling students
  • Do support students with the right tools

I recommend the whole article and the references therein.
