An Introduction to Bi-Weekly Math Tip Sheets for Parents
Math Resource Teacher Thomas Morris in Collaboration with Math Coach, AP Villegas
October 2, 2020
At Stoddert, we know that how your children are learning math can be very different from how you learned it. We hope to assist your children’s mathematical understanding of core concepts and make their work a bit easier, by sending out Parent Tip Sheets from Eureka Math for each grade, every two weeks. Our goal is to explain what your children are learning in math and how to solve problems.
Each Tip Sheet has 5 sections to help you understand what your child is being asked to do for a specified group of lessons. Please find an explanation of each section of the Tip Sheets, along with the compiled Tip Sheets for each grade below.
If you have further questions on how to best use or interpret the Tip Sheets, please contact Thomas Morris, our Math Resource Teacher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Key Concept Overview: This section provides an overview of what general concepts and skills your student is working on.
Sample Problem: This section is among the most helpful on the Tip Sheets. Eureka provides an example solution to a problem, including any visual representations or models students will be asked to create.
How You Can Help at Home: This section provides tips on how to help your children with their work without completing it for them, as well as ideas on how to link what they are learning in math, to their lives outside of school.
Terms: This section provides definitions of any important vocabulary your children will learn during the given math topic.
Models: This section provides examples or explanations of the types of visual models your children may be asked to use to represent and explain their work.
Visual models are a key part of Eureka Math, and help students visualize and interpret abstract concepts and problems.
