Use the sidewalk or any cemented ground area where you and your child can draw on using a chalk. Draw a number line starting with a "0" and ending with "25" equally dividing the distance between each numbers. You can then make your child stand on a number then ask him to jump a specific number of steps back until he reaches zero. Example: Let your child stand on the number "18" in the number line facing towards the "0" then make him jump on every three lines until he reaches "0" counting how many jumps he had to do to reach the "0". This game is just like the frog game we used to do on paper when we were younger and mastering our division skills.
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.
Multiplication. To teach multiplication you need to start by teaching them as addition. To show them how to get the product of 2 * 3 = 2+2+2 = 6 or 2 * 3 = 3 + 3 = 6. Once the kids get the concept of adding same numbers to get a product they will be able to move on to larger numbers. Of course, it would not hurt to have them memorize the multiplication tables but it will also be helpful to teach them some tricks (finger trick for the 9 times table) to make memorizing fun for them.
