How to talk math with your kids - video

Kent Haines is both a math teacher and a dad. In this video, he shares some excellent tips on how to help your children's "math-readiness", expressing it with a modern term.

1. Use math language.
2. Play.
3. Focus on questions, not on answers.

I enjoyed the video!
