    • Math Problems
    • A good math education needs to start very early, asearly as in elementary school. However, it is ratherclear that students are not learning math in a waywhich will help them love it, hence often times, theytry to look for help with math.Consequently, it is notunusual that students simply turn away from math,and dont end up assimilating basic mathematical skillwhich would help them tremendously in theprofessional lives, in almost every single area.
    • It is not a mystery that the main reason whystudents have little affection for math is because ofa deficient methodology lacking in meaningfulmath problems . One capital mistake is the tendencyto entice memorization instead of critical mathreasoning, which certainly leads to failure, sincememorization doesnt provide the reach that truemathematical understanding does. With this kind ofteaching method, it does not help the students thatmuch with math. Take for example the case ofPythagoras Theorem.
    • The Pythagorean Theorem in geometry says that, fora triangle in which one angle is a right angle (having90 degrees or also known as a right angle), thesquare of the length of the hypotenuse is equal tothe sum of the squares of the lengths of the twoother sides of the triangle. In equation form, it isoften expressed as a2 +b2 = c2.
    • We can say that regardless the appealing appearanceof the formula, instead of memorizing it, it would beobviously more productive to discuss how the formulais derived, or at least why it is plausible that it istrue. He or she might talk on the history of thetheorem, and might need to illustrate some drawings.In addition, presenting it in a story-like manner wouldmake math more interesting for kids. As we probablyhave experienced before, a good story usually makesit up for a difficult concept, because it makes mathmuch more enjoyable.
    • Another fun mode of educating kids in mathematicsis through online games. There are quite a bignumber of websites which offer interactive gamesthat help your kid understand the concepts ofmathematics while at the same time, making learningan enjoyable experience. Not only free material isavailable online. Sometimes, quality material can bepurchased at reasonable prices, which could reallymake a difference. Math doesnt get any easier withall the resources available nowadays.
    • In todays world it is clear that not all theresponsibility of math learning is on the teachers.Parents too play an important role in the developmentof a kidýs learning process. There was one parent inCalifornia who was struggling to teach her kid aboutthe various denominations of the dollar. Instead ofjust letting her daughter memorize how the coinslook like and how much it is equivalent to, she set upan imaginary "toy store" wherein she tries to "buytoys" from her kid.
    • For mathematics to be entertaining, and to help youdeal with math with your kids, mathematics shouldbe presented in such a way that kids wouldremember the concepts and formulas easily.Creativity is the key, aside from having a fullunderstanding of the principles behind.http://brilliant.org/
