Expose Your Child to Math and Make It Fun

We learn things best when we have fun, this is a proven fact that we have often discussed. Yet, sometimes parents wonder if this rule can also apply to more challenging subjects, such as math. The answer is yes. That is why it is important that math is taught as a fun and interesting subject and not spoken of as something negative and difficult.

Demonstrate a Good Attitude Towards Math

It is important to teach children to view all school subjects as interesting and not as tedious so they can have a positive attitude towards them. This will greatly facilitate and improve their performance, no matter the subject. Always avoid making negative comments about math. Even simple comments that seem harmless can have a big impact on how your child views math and other subjects. Sometimes saying something like ¨I'm not a math person,¨ can give your child the wrong idea and turn math into something less interesting and too complicated for them.

Other Tips to Encourage a Love for Math

  • Use props. Use card games, board games, toys, candy, and any other items that can help you explain math rules and facts to your child.
  • Use games. Even active games like hide-and-seek can help your child develop their counting skills.
  • Reward improvement. It doesn't have to be something big, even stickers go a long way. Just make sure to encourage your child as they work. You may want to give them small prizes or rewards after they learn new math concepts or memorise multiplication facts. Show them that even though math takes work it can be very rewarding.
