Cathy Draper's passion to fight innumeracy is evident in Spatial Sense Makes Math Sense. The book is personable, conversational, and makes sense. It provides a great refresher of geometry and shows how parents can make sense of it to help their children. Each chapter is introduced with a quote that frames the theme of the passage and weaves history with foundational facts to make sense of mathematical theory. Draper has undertaken a remarkable goal by focusing on the support of parents to support the student learner. -- Rudolph Weekes, principal, West Roxbury Academy, Boston Public Schools, father, former headmaster of Academy of Public Service and high school mathematics teacher
Designed to help parents help their children with the content and psychology of math, this book focuses on visual models that support "Math Avoiders," and can help them become "Math Aficionados." Catheryne Draper "has been learning from her students for more than half a century" and she shares wisdom and advice for families to rock math homework! The top to-dos include accepting mistakes, trusting your child, and being willing to learn along with them, rather than you learning it first. -- Robin Schwartz, founder, Math Confidence, adjunct professor, Math and Education, College of Mount Saint Vincent
