Whether you have a fourth or fifth grade student who is struggling with fractions or a Kindergartner who is just entering the school system, this book is for you. Book Content Includes: -Understanding the Standards for Mathematical Practice -A Basic Outline of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics -Tools and Examples for teaching Number Understanding -Tools and Examples for teaching Place Value -Tools and Examples for teaching Addition and Subtraction -Tools and Examples for teaching Data Organization -Tools and Examples for teaching Multiplication and Division -Tools and Examplea for teaching Fractions -Tools and Examples for teaching Decimals All content is written with the typical parent in mind.

About the Author:

Christen Nine has a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Masters of Education in Moderate Disabilities. She is a certified Secondary Mathematics Teacher through the state of Massachusetts. She has taught high school math, both in the classroom and online, and currently serves on the board of directors for Christian Educators Academy, a private online school. Her combined passions for bringing meaningful, continuity to math education across all grade levels, for making math accessible and understandable to all students, and for seeing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics implemented in a valuable and worthy manner, have been the key motivators behind this project.

Review:

1. "This is without a doubt the best book I have found for adults working with children and Common Core math. I spent a lot of time at the library trying to find something that was user friendly, clear and concise and would provide adult support to a second grader. The library books were all too long on theory and short on actual, simple explanations and most importantly, examples! I wish schools would have this available, for parents and others who provide support to children, to preview and even check out for a couple of days so they could use it with their child. The second grader in my life, has made gigantic leaps and is doing most of his homework with minimal supervision. He is excited about math, which is the best result of all. Seriously, this book is worth the price, I can't recommend it too highly!" -K.B. Portland 2. "This book really helped me help our son. I get it now! A coworker suggested this book for me and it is really helping us understand more. This is not the way we learned math but now we can follow along and help our son." -T.S.B. 3. "The absolute BEST way for parents to deal with the meltdowns that can come from math homework....I'm talking about the adults not the kids! Great job and an invaluable resource for interested parents." A.L.
