The other traditional leisure activity that I advocate for improving math skills is playing board games. There are numerous board games which involve rolling dice to move around a board, but the one of the best board games for developing the complete range of math skills is Monopoly. When playing Monopoly each player moves around a board buying, developing and selling property with the aim of bankrupting all the other players in order to win. What makes Monopoly different from many board games is that one of the players is appointed banker, a role which requires them to manage many of the financial aspects of the game, including arranging mortgages on properties, taking payments and giving change. If you put a child whose math needs a boost in the role of banker (and ensure that the other players have the patience of saints) in time, you will find his or her mental math skills flourish while everyone is having fun. The great thing is that Monopoly gives everyone more than enough time for practical math practice, as the game has a reputation for being interminable. In fact, the longest recorded game of Monopoly lasted for 1,680 hours, which is 70 days or 10 weeks. Just think how good your young banker has mental math would be after such a monumental game and how frayed everyone else has tempers might be as a result!In the concluding article of the series, we will consider the role that online math games can play in improving a kid has mental math skills.
At a young age, kids are first taught to write letters in print only. When kids reach the age of eight to ten, they are taught how to write in cursive. They may find this quite difficult and boring at first. But one fun way to teach them this is to use worksheets also. Worksheets are now being used in most schools as they are proven effective in fostering a children has learning process. There were studies that show children responding better to worksheets compared to other boring and strict methods of teaching.
The next step is learning to write numbers, and this is where mathematics worksheets become almost a necessity. Unless you have great handwriting, lots of spare time and a fair amount of patience, writing worksheets will help you teach this valuable skill to your child. Dot-to-dot, tracing, following the lines and other writing exercises will help your child learn how to write numbers. A good set of worksheets will include practice sheets with various methods to help your child learn to write numbers.
