The purpose of this project was to develop a family mathematics night program that would encourage parental involvement in mathematics education thus, enhancing student achievement in mathematics. Parents attending the program would: (a) become familiar with the current mathematics program used by their children; (b) learn mathematics games to play at home with their children; and (c) be introduced to various child appropriate, mathematics web sites on the Internet. Much of the material presented was recapped in a miniguide to fourth grade mathematics that was given to all the families. This guide is a tool for the parents to use at home while helping their children with mathematics. The project was reviewed by master teachers to ensure that the project goals were attained. Limitations to the project and suggestions for further study were included in Chapter Five.
