Why Your Kids Should Love Math

Feb 2, 2022 | Wurzbach

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, bringing in the season of love. Here at Mathnasium, we love math, but we know that isn’t the case for everyone. But there are key reasons why students should love math and we’ve included those reasons below. 

 

Math builds problem solving skills. Learning to look at a problem - whether a math problem or a life problem - and come up with a plan is an important skill to practice. 

 

Math encourages curiosity and questions. You may think of math as looking for the answer to a problem in a book or on a worksheet, but math really starts with wondering or asking a question. Helping students to start by wondering builds interest and motivation.  

 

Math helps out in the kitchen. What’s the easiest way to cut a pizza evenly to serve 12 people? If a batch of granola calls for 2 ½ cups of oats, how much do you need to make a double batch? Fractions, multiplication, measurements, estimates… these are all parts of math that show up in the kitchen. 

 

Math is useful in everyday life. You need math to manage money, balance checkbooks, figuring out time and cost for travel, understanding sports, playing music, and so much more. Math matters in everyday life.  

 

Math is fun and there are so many reasons for your kids to love math. We’ve shown you why your kids should love math, stay tuned to learn HOW to get your kids to love math.
