By introducing puzzles in the math lesson or as homework, teachers can get every student engaged. And the more students practice, the better they will learn or catch up. Teachers can give puzzles as homework assignment to those who are struggling with the subject. To give a puzzle as homework rather than a page in a book, will probably yield a better result.
Let your child help with baking some cookies. Let him do the measuring of the ingredients but ask him to double the ingredients so that you can bake two batches with one mixing. For example, if your recipe calls for 3/4 cup of flour for one batch then you can have your child compute for how many cups he needs to make 2 batches and without using the same size of measuring cup your child will have to compute for the quantity of flour he has to measure. In this example he will have to have 1 and 1/2 cup of flour to make two batches of cookies.
Before tackling your child´s math problems, it´s helpful to understand the curriculum and why certain types of math lessons are difficult for young children. 3rd grade math curriculum typically includes multiplication and division, which children often struggle with. Kids will have especially pronounced problems when multiplying and dividing if they´ve had problems with addition and subtraction in the past or if they simply haven´t spent much time practicing these basic skills. Children may also have trouble seeing the patterns in multiplication tables, which will make it much more difficult for them to keep up with their classmates. Multiplication tables can be difficult to approach and kids who understand the relationship between division and multiplication will be able to absorb lessons much more easily.
Ask any elementary school student what subject he hates more than any other and the chances are that 9 out of 10 will say Math. I know I did, and I know that 2 out of my 3 children did. Why do you suppose this is true? The main reason kids hate Math is that somewhere along the way, they haven´t quite understood a concept that was presented to them, and, often, before they do understand it, a new concept has been added. Before long, the child is so overwhelmed, they just give up and, as a result, decide they hate the subject.
My wife and I came up with a plan to have our daughter set some goals and once she accomplished those goals, then she would get rewarded for her efforts. But we did not leave her by herself to accomplish this feat alone. We had to be there every step of the way, encouragement and giving praises to her for a job well done. Just before the end of the school year, her third grade class just started doing division problems, and the look on her face just said it all. Her usual complaints of, "I can´t do this," or "this is too hard," once again was heard throughout the house.
Division is one Math concept that a child should master early on. As a parent your child will surely need your help in improving his skills in division. Division math games that will improve your child´s skills can be easy and fun and will help give your child a great time in learning this concept.
Subtraction. Be sure that they have already mastered their addition before going into subtraction. The easiest way to teach subtraction is by doing it in addition so that your students will be able to discover the concept of problem solving. You can ask them how for missing parts of an addition equation, such as 5 + __?__ = 8. You can give them word problems to solve depicting situations at home or in school. You can also make a supermarket game so that they would know how to compute for change.
