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.
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.
Last week, I started practicing division problems with her, but she would not ask questions of about certain problems, all she would do is put her head on the table and start complaining. It took me a little bit to come up with a solution to help her understand of how division works. Then about 20 minutes later, as I can recall, she started to do some of the practice problems the way that I showed her, then, she caught on. The way that I showed her is that you take the first number in the problem, let´s say 20 and it´s divided by 4 equals to what number. Put it in multiplication form like this 4 x? = 20, and then she realized how easy division is. It takes a lot of patience and understanding of what a child is going through and putting it in a way that they can understand it.
