"If I hadn't received educational therapy and learned how to think my way through math, I would have failed algebra in high school. Thank you, Discovery! I'm 24 now and still using what I learned."

Parent Tips


When it comes to math, it is all about keeping it real! How many of us have struggled with math or expressed a dislike of math in the past? To have your child make a meaningful connection with math, it is important to be positive and to make math relevant. Take every opportunity to make math a part of your daily routine.

For younger students, parents can suggest counting all cars of a certain color as you drive. How about identifying the shapes of restaurant signs? See this article for more information. 


For older students, make it a family project to get involved in couponing. Many math skills can be utilized while you are saving money. See this website for more information.

This is a great article that highlights an important thing to remember when students are being asked to memorize math facts. Children and adults alike need to have a strong number sense in order to develop true math fluency. 

Number sense is the ability to work with numbers flexibly. For example, the article (Boaler, 2015) states, “when asked to solve 7 x 8 someone with number sense may have memorized 56 but they would also be able to work out that 7 x 7 is 49 and then add 7 to make 56, or they may work out ten 7’s and subtract two 7’s (70-14). They would not have to rely on a distant memory.”

This article is a valuable resource. At the end, activities are included to use to develop number sense.
