During classroom time, you can even make division activities more interactive. Create groups of students in the classroom and give them all some objects like marbles, or other small objects. You can tell your students how many they have, and how they should divide out the marbles with their friends. This will quickly help them understand the basics of division, and added onto an understanding of adding, subtracting and multiplying they´ll soon be on their way to understanding more complex parts of their mathematics curriculum. Keep your students interested, and if you´re helping your children, remember to keep encouraging them. No matter how hard they find it, they´ll soon get the hang of it.
There are many strategies how teachers can get their students engaged. In his book "The Art and Science of Teaching", Robert Marzano describes student engagement. Marzano states that people naturally like to play games! Marzano statements indicate that when teachers present their learning materials in the form of games and puzzles, students will take the bait and learning will take place.
Math has always been a passion for me, even as a little kid. It wasn´t until that I got to college and enrolled in pre-calculus, then, the problems started arising. I was so filled with pride that I can do math in my head with ease that I started to forget the basic principles of algebra. I struggled for most of the semester and then came the most difficult decision of all, I withdrew from the course. After another attempt at the class, I had the same problem again. It wasn´t until later that I developed a plan that will help me succeed in my math courses.
Fun. Invent math games that will not only spark the interest of your students but will also make them enjoy playing these games. You can create games using common items such as crayons, chairs, pencils, books and toys. Counting. The most basic math concept that kids should learn is counting. Teach them the ability to count and the skill to identify numbers and symbols. Without this knowledge it will be hard for them to understand math at all. Equipping them with this ability will prepare them for the four basic math operations: addition, multiplication, subtraction and division.
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.
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.
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.
