You can make learning math more fun by turning math problems into a game. Make a game such as using different items to represent the different forms of currency amounts in your country. Have some extra items of currency to see which one of you can become the richest, by answering the problem correctly.

The first step is to start a family project where you buy or better yet, make your own chart of numbers up to 200 or higher. The chart can be in several pages.

After your child is proficient in decimal and fraction problems, I highly recommend he begin to use a calculator to do all his math problems. He should learn to use a scientific graphing calculator. Using a scientific graphing calculator is a subject in itself and takes a lot of practice. His college classes and exams will require it. And there are so many complicated math problems that can not be efficiently worked without a scientific calculator. Believe me, webpage even with the use of this calculator his problems will be tough to work. Today, math is so much more than doing calculations by hand and he will need time to master this advanced work.

As you plan your chess strategy you will learn that math is fun. Practice your math skills over and over again. Use your math skills in your chess board game. Do not make the mistake of trying to just get by with as little strategy as you can, that is, to trust in luck, to get you winning strategies. Stretch your imagination and use all your efforts to come up with a strategy that works every time. You can use creativity to develop a chess strategy that no one else will ever come up with. Use your persistence to keep trying and never give up. Keep trying even with failure after failure in your past. There are many successful people who accomplished their goals because they tried one more time.

It's helpful to know what's driving the breadth. As the national study panel concurs, publishers are trying to meet demands of hundreds of different districts by including everything that any school might want. And while publishers have been attempting custom publishing, it is just as difficult to create a math curriculum for a small district as a large one. Thus, the challenges of book publishing lead to a single, uniformly created overarching textbook. Often this is a very large text or an entire series.

Don't show a student how to solve something. Instead "think aloud". For example, you might have a whiteboard with a problem up, and start by saying, "o.k., I notice that the 4 numbers I am to sum are all in the thousands category, and that the first is near 3,000, the second near 5,000, and the third... I am confused about..." Model exactly what you thinking including confusion, emotions, skills, strategies and more.

Find out from your child what specific skills are causing the trouble. I suspect than at age 5, 6, or 7 there really aren't any specific issues. But, if your child does respond with something specific, then say "Oh, I think we can fix that very easily if we work together. It is really important that you are good at math. When you are good at math, you will enjoy it and you won't have the experiences I did." Then, right away, work with your child for just a short time and with lots of patience, positive attitude, love, and an attitude that conveys your confidence in your child. Never get angry with your child about learning. Then, continue to work on your own self-positive talk about math.

Let me share you my story. I have a daughter named Sarah who has a problem understanding math. Every time I see her grade, I really feel guilty because I am not doing anything to help her and be improved in Math. And not to mention I am a math teacher. I was so busy that time due to lots of work in school and aside from that, I was working on some very important legal matters. I tried to hire a private Math tutor, but not successful because her tutor just told me that she has no initiative to learn Math. I asked my daughter why she hates Math.

And if you just fill in worksheets without you working out the problem, you will not get the concept. When a student copies the answers, does not work out the problem themselves, the student has not mastered the material. Yes work together to solve the worksheet, that is different. If you participate in helping to solve the problem with your classmates, then you are learning the material. But you are not fooling anyone by just copying the answers.

People have to start from the ground, then first step, second, third and so on to reach their destination floor. Exactly the same way students have to start from Kindergarten, then grade one, grade two and three and so on to reach their math destination. Also, if some of the steps are broken in the staircase, it is still hard to reach the desired floor using those steps. Same way, if you are missing some of the basic concepts from elementary grades, math for you is still hard.
