Math Help

Is your child struggling with math? You are not alone. Many students have a difficult time grasping math concepts. Many of us parents also find it tricky to instill a love of math in our kids.


Here are some tips to help.

1. Try a hands-on curriculum. Many students do well with kinesthetic learning.

2. Try a more visual approach. Videos, board games, and website games can often hold a child's attention quite well and make math fun.

3. Try a song! Some children respond really well to music. You can find songs to teach different math concepts on the internet.

4. Relate it to real life. If your student can't see the reason behind something they most likely will not want to learn it. Explain and show how math is used in building, cooking, creating, and the design of the natural world. It will build enthusiasm.



Now it's your turn.

Here at Frontier, we want to do our best to help your student succeed at math. Take a moment to tell us what has improved your student's math skills, so we can better help our families.
