Homework Questions What is the problem about? Even if you don’t know how to solve a problem, listening to your child’s explanation will help you find a strategy. What are you trying to do or find out? Is this like another problem that you have worked on? What have you tried? What did you do in class? Can you make a picture or a diagram?
Expect that sometimes homework will be difficult Expect some confusion or struggle-it’s part of learning new things Expect that your child can succeed
Research suggests that an important difference between successful and unsuccessful problem solvers lies in their beliefs about problem solving, about themselves as problem solvers, and about ways to approach solving problems. For example, many students have developed the faulty belief that all mathematics problems could be solved quickly and directly. If they do not immediately know how to solve a problem, they will give up, which supports a view of themselves as incompetent problem solvers. Furthermore, many students believe there is one “right” way to solve any mathematics problem. Not only do these students become dependent on the teacher or an answer key for verification of their solution, but they also fail to appreciate the excitement and insight that can come from recognizing and connecting very different ways to solve a problem.
