How to Help Your Child with Math if You're Not a Math Person
Teaching our children math when we don’t think we’re good at it ourselves can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. There are so many wonderful tools and technologies that have emerged to support parents helping their children learn math, even if they have low math confidence themselves. In this workshop, seasoned K12 teacher and secular homeschooling expert Manisha Snoyer will debunk the myth that some people just “aren’t naturally good at math”, talk about techniques to learn math with your child (rather than teach them), address how to navigate learning math with different learning profiles including giftedness, autism and dyscalculia. We’ll talk about what to do when your child outpaces your own learning, or when you encounter particularly strong resistance to learning math. We’ll also share techniques for finding great tutors at any budget, including zero. Finally, we’ll explore some of the wonderful math curriculum and approaches available so parents can determine which is the best fit for their unique children. We’ll leave plenty of time for Q & A to address the needs of unique learners. This workshop is an extension of the article “How to Help Your Child with Math if You’re Not a Math Person” in the Fall 2023 issue of The SEA Homeschoolers Magazine.
