Message to Parents
School introduces the child to knowledge, skills and learning experiences needed to be successful in the classroom and at school. However, it is the parents who nurture a child from birth establishing values, attitudes and encouragement for the child to be a good family member and a good citizen.
It is when the teacher and parent work together to reinforce the proficiencies, experience and knowledge learned at school, with the attitudes and values of the home, that a child will achieve outstanding results.
The encouragement of parents and teachers together set a positive tone for the child's learning environment and progress. With mathematics the child learns the basic strands of understanding, problem solving and reasoning in maths. This book provides activities, instructions and examples so the child can work at school or at home with this program. He/ she can learn and apply the proficiencies of maths with understanding which builds confidence.
As a parent you help your child learn every day. This book can assist with the learning processes needed for development of mathematics. As a child works through the book, encourage and praise each lesson performance. Help by checking answers.
Enjoy the learning process as your child moves towards mastering proficiencies and understanding of mathematics.
