Why Sequence Is Everything In Math
Jun 29, 2022
Remember solving for X in Algebra class? You probably learned how to divide before you tried any algebraic equations, right? Math has a mandatory sequence, and if some steps are taken from the process, the results are not great.
- Imagine the steps to baking cookies... doing those out of order wouldn't give you the result you wanted either.
- How about learning to read? We don't give spelling tests before we learn the ABC's.
Student frustration often stems from not knowing the successive steps in math. We call that missing piece a 'math-gap'. (You can learn more about filling in your student's math gaps here.)
While it is important to remember that each student learns at a different pace, a general list of what math is taught in each grade can be found at the Common Core website. You'll notice each grade level has a lot of ground to cover.
So what happens when a child misses a step in their math instruction? Perhaps that child got sick for a week, or left for a vacation, or moved to a new school and is being taught at a different level than they previously were. It's pretty easy to find yourself out-of-sequence with math.
At Mathnasium of Paradise Valley, we help your child make sense of math by making sure they learn math in the right order. Every child can benefit from being tutored in math, especially if they are unsure of any math concept. Mathnasium's specialized math tutors are great at reinforcing weak areas and laying a strong foundation for future math understanding.
