How to improve a child’s success in math

By | September 3, 2018

Can your child not solve mathematics examples? And in the diary every day worse evaluations on this subject? How to help your child to understand this complex science and to save money on Tutors?

Many children do not like math, and many kids are faced with this problem, a dislike of mathematics. And this is the explanation: all that is not clear-difficult, and difficult times-so interesting!

The basic steps, which met the kid in school: addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication. If he has some kind of problem with addition or subtraction, then this is the ball will accumulate in the problem to multiplication and division! So try to understand no does your child have problems with these two actions! Send him some examples or set a task for these actions! If any problem is there, then the multiplication table or some action with the division, you still early to decide!

Some parents teach children through mobile apps, such as Prodigy Math Game. They help children in game form very quickly understand the basic principles of mathematics. But what to do when faced with real problems?

It is very important not to tell the child “if you don’t understand, then sit down and learn until you understand!” It is important to understand the child at this age is concentrated and accepts information only 15-20 minutes! So much time in the Junior school are taught a new topic: 5-minute attention is paid to the repetition of what was taught at home, 5 minutes in the middle of a lesson – the p. T. break 5 minutes at the end of the lesson – recap what was learned before, 5 minutes roll call and the conversation on distant subjects, and only 15-20 minutes is given for learning new material. And here is the first tip: engaged in no more than 15 minutes, then rest, and may again in 15 minutes to continue the occupation!

Do not forget that the child was still in school, and he had lessons, and then he came home and began to teach the homework in between, he had a few extra circles, and the kid had no time even to walk! Allow him to go one extra club, not 3-4! Give your child his free time, and he should have time to switch from one class to another! Ideally, if your child has free time and studies with additional circles are in the ratio 50:50!

And it is important to be able to relax–the best holiday for a child is when he does what he likes, but not tense. For example, rest on nature, ride bicycles, draw or play outdoor games. Make family picnics or walks, this holiday is always beneficial to the child or play with a child at home in some kind of easy game: collect puzzle games, play the show, can also allow him to play on the computer only a short time – maximum 30 minutes!

Game No. 1:

Mom: Sofia, how many light bulbs in your room

Girl: 3

Mom: go and count how many in the bedroom?!

Girl: 5!

Mom: and count please, how much we need to buy light bulbs?

Game No. 2:

Mom: let’s boil dinner on the potatoes! How old are you?

Girl: 2

Mom: well, me and 4 for dad our boil 6. So: 2 potatoes, 3 and 5. Here’s the saucepan, fill this potato for lunch.

The girl adds 2+3+5 potatoes, and gaining them 10 pieces in a saucepan.

The next step in improving math skills of the oral account becomes a game in which mom needs to think of the conditions, taking into account the interests of Sofia. The main idea is that in this game we used a simple mathematical operation.

Game No. 3:

I have a gift for you. But you get it only after find-pass “all the tests ! Here’s a map that will lead you to the gift!

“Make as many steps to the sofa, how much is 12-6 , then make the 5+2 jump, turn right and walk a 7-3 step. In the closet, pick a thing that hangs on the score 5-1. Put it on and then take another 10+6 steps from the Cabinet. Yay! You’re the target.”

The secret is that the child didn’t feel it cause something to teach. For him, this ordinary life. Mom thinks so too, when going to the store and makes a list or cooking to eat. The child feels responsible for it when it helps the mother.

Tip: Translate the difficult to understand the child tasks in the game!

Diversity game: walking on the street, and the child says: look what a nice car!!!!! And you say to him : look, what’s her number! Come on all the machines that we like, and we will be in an amount to put. And so we train subtraction and addition. 4-digit numbers can perform any action! Try it! Boys this exercise-the game is really like. The main thing that you too were involved.

When your child is confronted in school with the objectives of the division, how to help him? The main tasks in the textbooks are very far from the baby! At this age children have poorly developed visual thinking, so for better understanding of the job, it is important to bring the situation described in the problem, to the child’s life.

Mom: Sophia, we only have 3 apples, and guests today will be 9, let’s divide these apples between all equally!

I made 6 sausages to share, please them equally to all (on the table, 3 plates)

Mom reads a problem: “On 6 identical dresses spent 24 meters of fabric. How many meters of fabric went into each dress?”

Mom: Sophia, look, I have 24 buttons, let’s split it 6 dresses for your dolls, so we were able to sew them.

When the child understands, about what speech, when the situation is close to him when he can touch the object and make him some action, it is easier to solve the problem! First of all, note that in an age in which division is usually studied at school, the child is still in the so-called “formal operational” stage of development. So, it cannot understand abstract concepts. Therefore, every explanation should be a real example of interest the child.

Tip: Adapt to the situation of the task to life

Constantly practice outside the home. For example, go to the store, bought apples, saying: we got 6 apples, let’s count, how many apples will each of us and we have enough or get more?! Or come to the site, I give him 9 of candy and tell to share among all my friends equally!

It’s such an unspoken, but exercise! Very well suited! Use all improvised objects to the child it was easier, and this is our advice!

It is still very important to the child and the school to use your technique to adapt to all tasks to intimate situations. For this you need to develop creative thinking, we were talking about. One of the most useful for its development activity is drawing. That is why this subject is taught in school. The drawing need not only to ensure that the child has mastered the skills in this area. Through drawing, we develop the ability to represent in mind a variety of situations. Encourage your child to draw his favorite character who lives in the house. And he will come up with your character, what’s his house, what furniture, etc… a great way to develop creative thinking is to paint the poetry! For example, select ABC book with a simple rhyme and ask the child to draw pictures! Incidentally, this is also a great way to memorize complex poems in school!

Tip: think visually.

We still have one action, I think it is very difficult, more difficult to sit down and learn all the examples from 1 – 9!

The multiplication table is a lot of material to memorize! So first, dear parents, – we learn gradually! No need to force the child to learn the multiplication table! Agree that today he will learn from 1-3, tomorrow from 4-7, and then he will learn from 8 to 10. It is also very important to explain to the child the essence of multiplication. Typically, children who begin to learn the multiplication tables already have the concept of elementary arithmetic operations such as addition and subtraction. This knowledge will help you to explain to him the principle of multiplication: what is 2 multiplied by 3 is folded 3 times the number 2, that is 2+2+2. The child should be well aware of it, in order to avoid many difficulties and misunderstanding in the study of the multiplication table.

Divide the entire multiplication table for 4 days, and get a gradual memory!In addition, to consolidate the use of “effective TRAP” – on the flat place, hang a piece of paper with a few examples from the table of multiplication or division with answers, especially in those places of the apartment where the children visit often. The children themselves look and check whether the recorded examples on the wall, the fridge, next to a vase of candy near the computer hung stickers with examples and their solutions. Children, sometimes it stops near the stickers and repeats!

For consolidation of the material studied can be found in the MAILMAN. Prepare 10 houses from coloured cardboard, on the roof of each lock.This is the answer to the example, written on a sheet of paper.

I’ll give you a letter, and you take it in the house, the room provides is equal to the answer on the card!

– 4*3 – this bueeeee, 12!

– We find in the apartment house with such a figure, and near it you will find a surprise.

Children in the Junior school age is the well developed visual memory. Here’s an example with stickers, plastered all over the apartment, great help, not getting stuck on a certain task, remember you need examples. And more importantly, so the child learns the multiplication table in a scatter, which will allow him to navigate easily and not to memorize everything in the correct order.

Our advice is to visualising tasks!

Another very useful tip: don’t become for the child an evil teacher! Be a friend to him! And play school! But this time the child will be your teacher! Ask your child to come up with for you puzzle with different conditions: “so I solved it in 3 steps”, that there was “so much more for so much less.” Then he will feel himself a “teacher” head in the game. But not even suspect that he will need to think independently to solve this problem! You are not deceived by the answer! Give it to him! Answer incorrectly! It will spur and challenge you to more quests!

How to learn the multiplication table of 9 for 2 minutes? Ready?!

To learn it we need 2 hands!.

To do this, put your hand’s palm down, fingers need to straighten. Now, to multiply any number by 9, just bend your finger under the number on that number (counting from the left). The number of fingers folded to be tens of answer, and after the unit. Here, for example 7*9. We left to right to 7. Bend this finger (7) and now again we consider the left we have 6 fingers and 3 right fingers. Recorded 6 and 3, turned 63!

That’s all! 2 minutes and we know the whole column on 9-ku the multiplication tables! Of course, now we won’t be able to say that we know it to memory, but using such a crib, the child quickly memorize the table of 9!

And I really hope nobody will ever shed a tear because of school problems!

Dear parents, do not scold children for failure, because you can always find a solution, and most importantly – give your kids more time to rest and turn dull uninteresting school curriculum in a fun game!

And “All will be good”!
