It’s our favourite time of year again! 14th of March marks another maths holiday to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π), reminding us that maths is fun and applicable outside the classroom.
Whether your child is behind in math or learning beyond their grade level, chances are they could improve their math competency in 2015. Here are a few tips for a brand new year of math!
Create a list of improvement goals for the upcoming year.
Once you’ve figured out which areas your child needs to focus study time on, it’s time to attack!
It’s hard to improve in any subject when negativity clouds your experiences. Make sure your child keeps a positive attitude toward math.
Math success is heavily influenced by what happens outside the classroom.
Math can and should be fun! At Mathnasium, we use proprietary curriculum that ensures math learning is lighthearted and fun as well as thorough. You can also find ways of incorporating math into your home life so your child can practice their math skills while doing fun activities such as shopping, cooking, sports, etc. Check out our holiday activities post for a few ideas for incorporating math into home activities, and stay tuned on the Number Sense blog for more fun ways to practice math at home!
We wish you a happy and improved year of math!
