Understanding The Mathematics

Even teachers who hold a math "topics" class only once a month see real benefits, so you don't have to abandon your regular class. And, you'll find that students are more engaged when regular class is held.

Ascending order means starting from the smallest number. Descending order is starting from the biggest number. Get your child used to these and other Math terms for an easier time in school.

Many teachers believe that grading is a form of feedback. It isn't. Grading, when done well, can be a form of assessment of learning, but the distinction should be clear. Grades are not an effective tool as assessment for learning. Grades are the end of the road, when you assess what has been learned, but they should not be intended to inform a student where to go next.

You can use various objects around the house: cups, spoons, towels or toys, to make it more interesting. Practice till you are sure that your child understands that numbers refer to the quantity of the objects in a group. With a strong number sense, your child will be better able to understand complicated Math problems in school.

Because improving success in math as well as helping children have a positive feeling about math and their own abilities is such an important part of my life, I spend a small portion of each day looking online to see what is being pushed at interested, caring, and worried parents as solutions to their child's difficulties in math.

There is nothing more certain than seeing the culture of a math class decline over a period of years when a teacher bribes them. The intent of the teacher, of course, is good. A teacher cares about his or her students and wants the very best for them. "I don't care how they learn math," one teacher said to me. "I just want them to learn it so that they are prepared." The teacher cared enough to purchase candy out of her own pocket, but the real message to students is this: the "positive reinforcement" of candy means "math isn't worth doing on its own." The research is clear on the matter too, and shows us that extrinsic, non-relevant rewards hurt learning.

If you want the best results out of your math revision exercises then you are better off not doing it alone. Doing revision alone can have you trying to figure out one small equation by yourself for two days. With the help of a friend you may learn how to do it in five minutes and move on to the next one.

Put five 1's papers in a row. Put eight 1's papers in a second row below the first. Compare the two rows and point out there are 3 extra in the second row.

Buzz is a counting game that has been played by kids for ages. It can quickly become a Halloween math game just by changing the word 'buzz' to a Halloween word. You might like to use 'Dracula', 'Boo' or 'trick or treat'. Start with multiples of seven being the banned numbers that have to be replaced by the buzz word.
