          Parents: How to Help When You Don't Know How
                 Innovate | Puzzles on Wheels


  This week's ENC Focus issue provides references and
  resources that can help parents help their children toward
  learning success.

  "Every parent knows what it's like to be in a classroom -- a
  decade or more ago. So much has changed since even the
  youngest parents were in school, from teaching methods to
  textbooks to expectations for parent participation."

  Sections of the issue include:

    - That's Not the Way I Learned It!
    - Helping the Helpers
    - General Help
    - Math Help
    - Science Help

  There is an online flyer that can be printed to send home
  or email to parents.

  Riders of the San Francisco Municipal Railway will have a
  chance to solve an intriguing puzzle to win $100.00 during
  the fall/winter launch of the "Think Math" poster project.
  Over the next five months, the Mathematical Sciences Research
  Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley is sponsoring a special
  city-wide effort to bring challenging and fun mathematics to
  citizens of all ages, especially school-age children. This is
  a pilot project that MSRI hopes to expand across the nation.
