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.
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.
What happens is that those who mastered their time tables in the second grade will have no problem solving these long division problems. They can fully focus on the process, instead of concentrating on the math facts. Those who struggled with their multiplication tables will most likely also struggle with long division. The ability and motivation gap between students is widening as the years progress.
Math can be a very difficult and dreadful subject. Many students fear their exams and find math painstakingly difficult! Only a handful of ´lucky´ ones seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Third grade math can be difficult for some children, as they´re expected to draw upon their experience from K-2 to tackle relatively complex math problems including multiplication and division. As a parent, you should work with your child during this crucial period in his or her education, as struggling kids will undoubtedly continue to struggle unless they receive encouragement, differentiated instruction and plenty of practice.
The Internet is more often used in teaching these days, and as a teacher you shouldn´t feel like you´re ´slacking´ by letting your students use the computers to continue their learning. Through a variety of teaching resource websites you´ll be able to access a variety of mathematical computer games that make division into fun activities. These games can be continued at home, and you can even implement computer games and other division and math related games into their homework activities.
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.
