Care should be taken to give children worksheets that they are capable of doing. This involves understanding and monitoring the child continually, since the level of attainment of different children would often be quite different. The worksheet should challenge the child but not overwhelm her. If the worksheet is too easy or too repetitive, it may bore the child and she would not be happy. If the activity is too difficult it would frustrate her and she would not like to take up more sheets. The children should love to do the worksheets; they should not be thrust upon them.
One way to put a stop to this is by having your children memorize these facts. Having to stop and calculate basic facts on each and every math problem makes for a very long math lesson with many mistakes. This is frustrating to both the parent and the child.Worksheets should not be used as busy work. This is a method used by overworked and overwhelmed public school teachers. With many students working in one room at different levels, teachers have no choice but to give busy work to maintain a sense of order in the classroom.
Mental technique. Teach your child how and when to use mental math techniques. For example, when adding 9+9+9, ask them to think 10+10+10=30-3=27 all the way to higher numbers. Verbal technique. This is very helpful particularly when your child is more interested in language. Teach your child the meaning of root words in the mathematics context. You may also teach him or her how to verbally explain her thought process and reasoning. For example, you teach percent by breaking down the word into per CENT and it would mean for each 100. With this definition, 5% of 200 would let her or him think 5 for the first 100 and 5 for the second 100. Therefore, 5+5 = 10.
Tactile Technique. If your child loves playing with cards, dice, chips, and other manipulative, this technique will surely interest him or her. You can use various types of manipulative to teach your child the concepts of math. Counting chips are best for learning the four major mathematical operations which are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For learning probability, dice and cards are the most appropriate tool.
Uses animation. To demonstrate math procedures and to maintain the kids has interest in the subject animation is used and even the characters used are those kids are familiar with like Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Dora, Disney Princesses, Bananas-in-Pajamas, TeleTubbies, etc. Variety of activities. Kids can choose from a variety of activities like practice tests, online quizzes, puzzles, riddles, assorted games and online evaluation and final exams.
The internet is the end-all of information nowadays and even our kids spend more time on the net playing online games than in the park or with friends. Additional learning, Math drills and practice has now been entrusted to the net and the proliferation of free online Math games for kids is the obvious proof of the importance of the internet in these times. Most of us parents are almost always busy with our work and raising our kids that letting them play online to keep them occupied and quiet has been a convenience. Yet, we still have to find out if these online math games are or will be beneficial to our kids learning.
