Math is fun for some people but kids may not find it so. These young ones have favorite pastimes that they like doing which keeps them entertained. Why shouldn’t math also be entertaining? Modern day children spend most of their time watching movies and playing computer games.

How To Make Learning Math Easy

Most of the time when you ask a child about learning math, they’ll usually respond that it’s hard. Some respond that they’re just not good at math. But did you know that with you’re help, you can make it a little easier for them to learn math? Yes, you can! Check out this article that James Tomas wrote.

Making Math Easy

 Math can be a difficult subject for many children, and often, children struggle in school simply because they do not understand the basic concepts of mathematics. If your child is struggling with this subject, and you want some suggestions for help on math, then you have come to the right place. If you take a proactive approach to your child’s learning needs, you can make math much easier for them. Just consider the following suggestions.

First, remember that school subjects are often considered not fun or even boring. Your child may be struggling with math simply because he or she feels like being in math class is torment. To get your child more interested in the subjects, look for ways to make it fun. Create math based games that will be exciting learning experiences. This is a good way to keep a child’s attention and help them learn without them feeling the normally drudgery of study.

Second, math can easily be taught in everyday situations. You do not have to sit down with a child at a kitchen table to study the subject. When your child needs help on math, look for real life scenarios to help them learn. For example, take them along to the grocery store and let them use a notepad to add up the cost of different grocery items that you are buying. When you purchase something at a convenience store, have the child try to determine how much change you got back from your cash payment. There are many real life scenarios that can easily implement help on math for your child.

Third, remember that illustrating something or making it hands on is a much easier way for children to learn. If you put a math problem on paper, the child may struggle. However, if you make it come to life, they may find it easier to learn. For instance, on a basic level, have the child add or subtract actual items like fruit in the kitchen, books or videos in the living room, or pebbles in the back yard. Bringing math to life gives a better illustration for a child to learn.

Many children struggle with math. If your child needs help on math, remember that you can give them that help. Just keep in mind that you need to make the subject more fun and interesting. You also need to use real life scenarios and illustrations to teach them the subject.

Can Learning Math Really Be Fun?

Quite often, when you mention the word “math”, you’ll get response like “ugh”, “I hate math”, “I’ve never been good at math” and many other negative responses!

It doesn’t have to be that way for most people though. In fact, learning math can be a fun process! (You know Mathnasium’s motto is “we make learning math fun” right?) You may be skeptical about that, so here’s an article where someone else believes that learning math can be a fun process!

Learning Basic Math Facts Can Be Fun… … Really

I know what you are thinking, there’s no way learning basic math facts can be fun. It’s a matter of memorization mostly, but still, it doesn’t have to be boring for you or your child. Utilizing some memory games and incorporating props can be very helpful for children who are initially learning math. Try some of these ideas yourself and you might just be surprised.

Flash cards are a tried and true technique, but how can you make them more fun? Stickers are a great way to show progress. If your child can provide the answer to a given flash card within three seconds, they get to put a sticker on the card. It’s surprising how motivating this is for a child who is struggling with their basic math facts.

Playing games online is another fun way to sharpen one’s skills. There are thousands of sites dedicated to math and many of them are free. Simply find a few that your child likes and rotate through them so your child doesn’t get bored or the site doesn’t become too easy. Some even have timed sections to help your child get faster at answering questions.

Another great option is to play a math memory game. Write the questions and answers on separate index cards and turn them over. You and your child will flip over different cards until you find the match. Your child will enjoy the game and the attention you are giving them and they will learn in the process.

Modifying games is simple and affordable for all parents. All it requires is a little time on your part. Create a shoe box full of homemade math games that your child can pick from on a daily basis. Spend at least 15 minutes a day practicing through these fun techniques and your child will be more confident in math in addition to being able to pass those timed tests.

How about you? Are you now a believer?

Have a great day!

Math Games Are A Fun Way To Learn Math

I found  a nice article on EzineArticles that I’d like to share with you. It deals with making the process of learning math fun. Something you should probably be familiar with if you’ve been reading this blog for a while!  🙂

So here it is:

 

Math Games – A Fun Way to Learning Math

Math games are a great way to get students involved in math.  Just like chess, math games get students hooked.  Each time they play, they have more confidence and better strategies.  With the competitive itch, they strive to do better each time they play.

Math games should be specifically designed to work on math skills.  It may work on addition, multiplication or fractions.  Having the skills as part of the game makes it easy to make learning seem fun.  Just like mothers often sneak vegetables into a casserole or pasta dish, teachers can sneak learning into games.

The games should have some elements that make it playable.  The game should have simple rules.  If there are too many rules, kids will lose interest.  Soccer is relatively simply.  You need to kick the ball into the net without using your hands.  In golf you try to hit a ball into a hole in as few strokes as possible.  With Scrabble, you try to make words with the highest point value possible.  The general goal or core rules of the game should be relatively simple.

Once this is established, there should be room for developing strategy.  The game Tic Tac Toe is not played by adults or even most kids as it is too simple.  The game of chess however allows players to make choices that affect the outcome of the game.  If you can’t develop strategy or feel like you are affecting the outcome, you probably won’t continue playing.

There also needs to be an element of chance.  Even though players may have different abilities, each one should feel as though they have a chance to win.  You wouldn’t enter a 100 meter race if you knew the other runner was a great deal faster.  In Scrabble the element of chance comes when players randomly choose letters.  When chance affects the game it evens out the playing field.

Games in the class create hours of solid practice.  Students actually focus on the skills and develop their skills quickly.  Aside from the math skills students learn, they also learn some much needed social skills by working with partners that they can’t get from video games.  Games are the way to reach children and make learning a truly fun and inspiring activity.  The skills they learn will last a lifetime.
