RCMS offers a variety of math courses to our students, including high school Algebra and Geometry.  We are very proud of our dedicated math teachers and administrators who support rigor in our classrooms. Wa also know that math can seem challenging to parents and offer the following tips to help you support your child as they become math scholars:

  • Talk about math in a positive way.
  • Encourage persistence. Some problems take time to solve.
  • Encourage your child to experiment with different approaches to mathematics. There is often more than one way to solve a math problem.
  • Encourage your child to talk about and show a math problem in a way that makes sense to them.
  • When your child is solving math problems ask questions such as: Why did you...?  What can you do next? Do you see any patterns?  Does the answer make sense? How do you know? This helps to encourage thinking about mathematics.
  • Connect math to everyday life and help your child understand how math influences them.
  • Computers + math = fun! There are great computer math games available on the internet that you can discover with your child.
  • Talk with your child’s teacher about difficulties he/she may be experiencing. When teachers and parents work together, children benefit.
