Parent Ed

The purpose of this page is to provide you with resources that will help you to be able to better help your child at home with homework. There will be videos that will help explain concepts as well as handouts by topic in the folder below.

Our Current Unit is: Rate, Ratios, and Proportions

Guiding questions to help students work through math homework:
  • What do you need to figure out? What is the problem about?
  • What words are confusing? What words are familiar?
  • What have you tried so far? What else can you try?
  • Can you make a drawing, table, or diagram to help you think about the problem?
  • Does your answer make sense?
  • Is there more than one answer?
  • What math words or steps do you use in class?
  • What information was given? What information is important?


Here is a sample of the problem solving plan we use in class. Students can think through these stages to help them work through problems. The last step would be to solve.
