Help children understand the “value of
Ideally to learn the various
mathematical concepts, children are required to understand the value of the
numbers. Do not just let them say 1,2,3 and so on. Instead, for an example, you
can keep one apple at a place and two apples in another place and help them understand
the differences between them. With this, they will definitely help in understanding
the value of the numbers.
Repeat “maths practice”
It is really not enough if you teach a particular
mathematical concept or a problem only once. The math skills will often be
confusing and hence, repeating the math practice multiple times will be of
great help. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in
Trondheim says it is math practice makes perfect, not the talent.
Make use of real ‘life examples’
The real life examples will help them
to remember things better. Let them measure cups of water, distance from one place
to another and such other things. All these examples can be of great help in developing
the math skills. In everyday life, we will surely come across some kind of math.
Involve children to such real life situations and this will surely help them to
develop their ability to think better.
Let the “teaching be in order”
Reaching math needs to be in order
always. Do not go directly to the difficult trigonometry or calculus, without
the right knowledge of Algebra. The base of learning these things needs to be strong
for a better understanding. When children learn the topics in order, they will be
able to thoroughly understand the principles and its applications.
Solving math problems on a “daily basis”
It is necessary to solve the math
problems on a daily basis. They are required to dedicate at least an hour for solving
the math problems on a daily basis. Use math practice website to master in each
skill through interactive questions with fun. This will confidently help them
in improving their performance.
following the above mentioned tips, children can definitely enhance the math
problem solving skills in them and can excel in learning of math subject. Only with
a good base, strong pillar can be formed.
Hence, the above tips should never be ignored when teaching math to the
children. This can in fact be considered a wonderful process, which will certainly
help in building a strong math foundation among the children.
