These guidebooks provide cross-disciplinary, creative, skill-oriented activities to foster home-school connections using household items.  They also focus on building equity in math since they are accessible to students and instructors of many levels.

Designed to foster a home-school connection, Family Math involves students in activities that are cross-disciplinary and creative as well as skill-oriented. Activities use easily available household items, and the books focus on equity in mathematics by making them accessible to students of all skill levels. Instructors will benefit from previous knowledge of math, especially algebra, but EQUALS does host trainings and offers other Family Math books with less demanding content.
