Beyond facts and flashcards : exploring math with your kids by Janice R Mokros( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows parents how to transform their family's involvement in mathematics with ways to expose their children to the mathematics they need. Parents learn to uncover the mathematics in their daily lives and how to participate with their children in mathematics learning. The book discusses mathematical literacy and chronicles a typical day of family math. In a series of suggested activities, everyday occurrences such as using coupons, sneezing, and folding laundry, become fun learning opportunities. Also discussed is what to look for in a mathematics class and how to support a good mathematics program once it exists. Contains 47 references. (Mkr)

Children's concepts of average and representativeness by Janice R Mokros( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports a study to address two questions concerning children's understanding of average: How do children construct and interpret representativeness within the context of data sets? and How do children think about the mean as a particular mathematical definition and relationship? Twenty-one students (seven each of 4th, 6th, and 8th graders) were interviewed using a series of seven open-ended problems that examined the notion of average. The four that yielded the most results were identified and included in the report. These were two "Construction Problems," an "Interpretation Problem," and a "Weighted Means Problem." Analysis of transcripts and summaries of the interviews produced five approaches that children used for constructing and describing average. The approaches were: (1) Average as Mode; (2) Average as Algorithm; (3) Average as Reasonable; (4) Average as Midpoint; and (5) Average as Mathematical Point of Balance. Interpretation of these approaches concluded that students whose strategies were dominated by Modal or Algorithmic approaches did not view average as a representative measure of the body of data as a whole. Interpretation also concluded that students whose strategies were dominated by the Reasonable, Midpoint, and Balance approaches embodied different aspects of constructing a mathematical definition of average. Further research questions resulting from the research are discussed. (Contains 11 references.) (MDH)

Putting Math in to Family Life: What's Possible for Working Parents? by Marlene Kliman( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A set of parent-child math activities designed to help busy, working parents do math with their children as part of everyday situations such as cleaning up and making dinner included basic steps, variations, and information on working with children were developed for families with elementary grades children aged approximately 5 to 11 and distributed at a variety of workplaces to groups of parents who had differing occupations, education levels, ethnicity, and family structures. The activities had titles such as How Much is on the Floor?, How Much Longer?, What's Fair?, How Much Do We Save?, Wish List, and Number of the Day. Seven parents were interviewed 2-4 weeks after they had completed the activities with their children and the ways in which they used and adapted the activities did not appear to relate to their education, mathematical comfort and expertise, or job. The following results were noted: (1) parents used and repeated the activities that fit best with their family life; (2) parents' use of the written materials seemed related to family interaction styles; (3) parents differed in how they prepared for working with their children; (4) parents valued the concrete information on working with children, even though they didn't always use it; (5) parents occasionally added more real-life math skills to the activities; and (6) parents thought their children learned useful skills.
