Ideas to Help Your Child Enjoy Math
Þ Be Positive! If you have a negative attitude about mathematics, chances are your child will, too. Help your child have a "can do" attitude by praising your child's efforts as well as her accomplishments. Acknowledge the facts that mathematics can be challenging at times and that persistence and hard work are the keys to success. Relate mathematics learning to other endeavors that require hard work and persistence, such as playing a sport. Struggling at times in mathematics is normal and is actually necessary to, and valuable in, understanding mathematics.
Þ Relate Math with Everyday Life! Every day, people face situations that involve mathematics, such as deciding whether one has enough money to purchase a list of items at the store, reading a map to find out where one is, building a budget, deciding on the shortest route to a destination, developing a schedule, or determining the price of an item on sale. Help your child realize that mathematics is a significant part of everyday life.
Þ Make Math Fun! Play board games, solve puzzles, and ponder brain teasers with your child. Your child enjoys these kinds of activities while enhancing his mathematical thinking. Point out the mathematics involved, and have your child discuss the strategies he used.
Þ Learn About Math Related Careers! Mathematics is foundational to a wide variety of interesting careers. Research different careers with your child, and find out what she should be doing now to prepare for these options. Help your child understand that the school courses she takes now and the grades she earns will affect her future. One source of information on the many career possibilities that involve mathematics is Career Ideas for Kids Who Like Math, by Diane Lindsey Reeves
Þ Have High Expectations! Today we are guided by a vision of mathematics for all. You would not expect your child not to read; similarly, you should not expect your child not to do mathematics. Your attitude and expectations are crucial to influencing the future opportunities for your child.
