Many parents think they could homeschool if only they knew how to teach math. They didn’t really “get” math when they were in school, so how can they help their kids? In this presentation you will learn how to help your child build a solid math foundation through the proven technique of scaffolding. You’ll hear about what you need to know, what you don’t need to know, and what to do when your child gets stuck. Come learn about some of the best resources out there for introducing your child to the wild and beautiful world of math.
Jennifer believes that raising intelligent, happy, freedom-loving children–and helping others do the same–is a powerful way of contributing to society. She worked as an intensive care nurse for 20 years, but now has switched to doing “intensive mommying.” The Georgias have four kids in Team A, who were homeschooled since birth and are now all launched into college, missions, jobs, and/or marriage. Team B is composed of three kids adopted from foster care along with their bio son.
Jennifer is the author of Magical Math: A Book for Young Children and Their Parents which is illustrated by Team A, and You Don’t Have to Be an Expert: Why Homeschooling Works. She blogs at Vision Academy Publishing.
