Decades of educational research tell us that an involved parent contributes overwhelmingly to her child's grades, school attendance, positive attitudes at school, likelihood of graduation, and desire to enroll in higher education. This is true regardless of the parent's academic achievement, cultural background, or family status.

Written around this central message, Spark Your Child's Success in Math and Science is an accessible and practical sourcebook for parents who want to understand and contribute to their children's success in math and science -- and to their overall education.

The book offers a variety of ways in which parents can begin or renew their involvement in their child's education. Arranged in short sections to make it easy to spot topics of interest, it features three main chapters:
-- A Parent's Role -- What involvement takes, what it doesn't require, and how to begin.
-- Math and Science Education Today -- What's important and what's changed since we were in school.
-- The Spirit of Inquiry: Keeping the Scientist Alive in Your Child -- Ways to initiate, sustain, or rekindle your child's love of learning.

Writing with warmth and unintimidating language, the authors draw from the wealth of educational knowledge at the University of California at Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. LHS is one of the nation's leading math and science education centers; instructional materials developed at LHS are in use in more than 20 percent of the country's elementary schools.
