Make Numbers Fun for Your Child With These 3 Math Help Tips!, Manhattan, New York

Helping your child better understand math can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. The trick is to make math as fun and interesting as you can by using your child's interests and personality to engage them on the subject. The tutors at FasTracKids in New York City make learning fun for all their students, and they can provide parents with a few math help tips so that you can make numbers a more dynamic and stimulating topic for your kids.

3 Exciting Math Help Tips for Kids

1. Introduce Counting Early

Counting games are ideal for young children first getting acquainted with the world of numbers and figures. Introduce a new number each morning, and inform your child that for the entire day, you will both look for that number. Jump-start their interest by seeking out and identifying the numbers when you see them. For example, you choose the number 5 as the day's digit. Wherever you and your child go, look for the number 5, and count out five like items when you spot them: five coins in your purse, five cars at the stoplight, or five people in line at the grocery store.

2.  Play Math-Related Games

math helpMath doesn't have to involve long hours bent over a piece of paper, concentrating on calculations. Teach your child that math really can be fun. There are numerous board and card games on the market that aim to spark a child's math interest. Chutes & Ladders®, Number Ninjas™, Safe Breaker™, and even dice and dominoes are excellent number-centric games that can provide your child with some beneficial math help.

3. Involve Your Child in Computing Numbers

You can increase your child's comfort around numbers and calculations by involving them in regular adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. If you're planning a playdate, ask your child how many people will be coming and how many snacks you need to make. When you pay for an item at the store with cash, explain how change is calculated. When you're making dinner from a recipe, use that time to introduce measurements and fractions. The possibilities are endless, and you are demystifying math with every task.

By demonstrating your enthusiasm for numbers, your kids will be on the right track to building a solid comprehension of math for themselves. Contact FasTracKids to learn more about their math help services, which include after-school and gifted and talented programs. You can also reach them by phone at (347) 983-2229 or via their Facebook or Twitter page.
