Authors: Kate Nonesuch
In this literature review, the author outlines the relationship of family math and family literacy, explores the importance of play in developing early skills, and traces the mathematical development of early childhood. She reviews several large and small scale family math programs, and discusses common findings as to what makes these programs successful. Finally, she notes some of the homework advice available to parents, in the context of home-school relationships. Except where noted, the examples reflect the experiences of the author.
