Studies show that parental involvement does indeed have a positive impact on student achievement in math (Cotton and
Wikelund, 1989; Sheldon and Epstein, 2005).
There is a growing body of evidence showing that parental engagement in children’s learning is associated with higher levels of attainment among children (Cairney, 2000; Desforges & Abouchaar, 2003; Melhuish et al., 2008).
Parents who are actively involved in their child's progress can make a huge difference!
There are 2 steps to achieve success:
-Understand where your child is in the learning process
-What resources to provide to guide your child to excel in mathematics
To maximize the impact, it is crucial for educators and parents to work together as a team to provide a nurturing environment crucial for academic growth.
Together we can make a difference!
This article highlights how parents and educators can work towards students' success in mathematics.
