Every child has the potential for success in math. But sometimes today's educational system can leave children-and parents-perplexed. What is "new math" and how does it work-or not work? What goals are realistic for your child? How do you make math fun instead of a chore? And how can you most effectively help your child learn? Even if parents can't remember a thing about fractions or word problems, this indispensible guide is so simple and straightforward that even the most confusing mathematical concepts seem easy to learn...and teach. Written by a former MIT professor and expert on learning, Math Coach shows parents how to evaluate their child's knowledge and school curriculum, then maximize their time, techniques, and learning materials.A lesson-by-lesson approach will help parents: * Explain mathematical concepts in clear, simple language * Use the most effective techniques for teaching counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, word problems, and algebra * Find study aids, teams, tournaments, and other ways to supplement their child's education

Finally, a math pedagogy book that I like--probably because it confirms my own theories about the (deficiencies in the) current approach to mathematics education. It would be a good read for parents trying to understand what is going on in contemporary math classes and who want to try and fill in the gaps at home with their children.
