But then again, this is the real world of math teaching and math learning! A great way to help your child develop their math skills is by adding a little fun to the equation. Using tangible ways to demonstrate skills such as fractions, as well as providing entertaining opportunities for practice and application, is half the battle! I will share with you several fraction math games to make, that are a lot of fun and cost little or nothing out of your pocket! Keep in mind that you can create similar games for learning all kinds of math skills! All that is required are some helpful manipulatives to create or buy such as fractional circles, bars, squares or number lines.

Whether you use computer based software or plan to keep your budget on paper, a worksheet can help you to brainstorm the categories you will need to budget for.

When I was at school, the best mental math student in our class was a kid who did npt like math at all, but out of school he spent most of his time playing darts. He went on to study finance and is now a very successful merchant banker, which is a moral tale that will appeal to some parents more than others. However, darts is an excellent game for improving a child has mental math skills. The game involves players in the full range of math: subtraction, addition, multiplication and division as part of the scoring process. Better still, the complexity of the mental math skills required to score and to calculate finishes increases as a player has darts skills improve, so that your kid has mental math and darts abilities will improve hand in hand. For parents concerned about the safety implications of allowing kids to play darts, there are a number of junior darts alternatives for younger kids which follow the same format as playing conventional darts, but without any risk of injury.
