Mathematics Curriculum Materials used in Durham Public Schools:

*Supporting Your Student at School; What Can Parents/Guardians Do?

  • Become aware of any mathematics anxiety they have and be careful not to pass along their fears to their children.
  • Realize that they don't have to know all of the answers (one of the most helpful answers may be "Let's find out together").
  • Talk to their children about the relevance of math to future success.
  • Be sure that their children pursue high quality math courses.
  • Find out about enrichment programs.
  • Encourage their children's interest in math and let them know they can succeed.
  • Have high expectations and check on their progress.
  • Ask questions.
*From the NC Dept. of Public Instruction Math Department.
