Helping with Homework

The help links below are tailored to your need. Helping with homework is difficult. Even if the parent is conversant with relevant mathematical ideas, the goal of helping the student become self-reliant is elusive. To successfully help with homework, parents must find ways to encourage persistence and reasoning, to build on what students already understand, and help them clarify their thinking. With those challenges in mind choose from:

  • General questions to help your student become more self-reliant: Tips for Helping a Student
  • Quick Summaries of Key Ideas by Course and Unit: These outline the new concepts and skills introduced or extended in each unit. Choose Quick Summaries from the pull-down menu at the right, and select a course and unit.
  • Summarizing Checkpoints by Course and Unit: These give more detail than the quick summaries, similar to what students should have in their notebooks or toolkits. Choose Summarizing Checkpoints from the pull-down menu at the right, and select course and unit.
  • Examples of Tasks by Course and Unit: These are solutions for specific homework problems. Not every homework solution is available; a list of what is available appears on the "Examples" page. Choose Examples of Homework Solutions from the pull-down menu at the right, and select course and unit.
  • Comparison with Traditional Homework Assignments: How is CPMP different and why?
