Addition. The concept of addition is the first of four math operations that children have to learn and being able to properly teach them the concept will provide them encouragement and the skill to move forward and still find math easy to learn. You can start by adding 1 to a number to generate the next number before going into adding one digit numbers. When the kids have mastered addition with one-digit numbers then you can move on with the one-digit and two-digit numbers combination until you can move on to multiple digits. Keep their interest by giving them competitive addition worksheets.
Online math software can be an effective way to practice at home, as math programs provide a steady source of new problems for children. Many modern math programs also use adaptive learning techniques to automatically change the types of problems that the child sees to adapt to his or her strengths and weaknesses. Your child will be consistently challenged and encouraged, which should lead to steady improvement. At the same time, past lessons will occasionally be revisited. This prevents your child from forgetting basic concepts that will be used in future lessons, thereby making every subsequent lesson somewhat easier.
Obviously this skill is not just for students. One benefit of learning alternative mental-math methods, is that parents and students are on equal footing. The method is new for both, so they share a learning experience, instead of having a parent just teach a child. When a child feels like he or she has an equal status with the parent, the "intimidation factor" is solved, and the child doesn´t have to feel stressed, and the parent doesn´t have to feel like he or she has to be an expert. Everyone can relax and learn at an equal speed.
No matter how many times you get the child to fill out a division work sheet, or produce division assignments, there is no promise of that child being able to continually deliver with an ability to successfully perform division problems. You need to ensure that the child can relate to the division technique and be taught in a way that they actually respond to. Mindlessly filling out worksheets and booklets often proves to be worthless to many children.
If you had to do the problem now, could you do it without just guessing? Could you prove your answer? How long would it take? Even if you were allowed to do it with a calculator, do you realize that most calculators will not give you an answer with a remainder, so a calculator would only be of limited help anyway? On questions like the one above, anyone who can do division at all will be able to lop off many valuable minutes on tests, and be much more confident of his or her answer, by using just some common sense and a simple technique you can learn.
Calculators have been infiltrating elementary schools for years, depriving children of the experience of learning vital mental skills. There´s no need for calculators for even large division problems. Certainly nothing an elementary school-age child will ever be faced with should require a calculator.
Math is one of the most misunderstood subjects in the world. When you try to teach a child to learn math, they would get a puzzled look, as they are trying to process of how numbers work and how problems add up. My daughter, when she started learning math, she would have a hard time trying to visualize how math problems add up or take away. It took a lot of time and hard work just to get her to understand how math works.
