In first grade it is essential that your child begin basic math facts. Most schools do a good job at starting basic math facts. From second grade to third, you need to ensure that your child becomes an expert on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing all numbers between 0 and 12. You may need to get copies of worksheets or flash cards. This is the MOST important step that you can do to start the groundwork of your student being successful in math. Too many children today go through the first 6 grades lacking these skills. Without it, they cannot do fractions or any other higher concept. At the fourth grade level, and perhaps earlier, your child needs to be an expert on fractions. Anything and everything. Again, worksheets and extra instruction are probably a must. This will be an impossible task if your child has not followed through on tip #5 above.
The answer for the above question is hidden in a simple example. I always give the example of stairs to my students, and giving the same example in this article. I compare the steps of a staircase to the concepts in mathematics. As this is very hard to reach higher floors of a building without stairs (or elevators these days), same way learn higher concepts in mathematics without learning basic concepts is very hard. People have to start from the ground, then first step, second, third and so on to reach their destination floor. Exactly the same way students have to start from Kindergarten, then grade one, grade two and three and so on to reach their math destination. Also, if some of the steps are broken in the staircase, it is still hard to reach the desired floor using those steps. Same way, if you are missing some of the basic concepts from elementary grades, math for you is still hard.
Children who struggle in a traditional learning environment can also get great benefit from digital learning games. Interactive platforms provide a fun way to learn without fear of failure and give rewards that are in line with what is being learned. Through games, your child can gain the confidence he or she needs to approach math concepts that once seemed impossible. This confidence helps improve school performance and can lead to more positive participation in a classroom environment. Unlike basic school curriculum, digital learning games can be designed to move at your child has pace. Many games feature levels that build upon each other, so your child does not have to sit through lessons that he or she has already mastered. Instead, each level of the game increases in difficulty depending on how well certain ideas have been grasped. This creates a custom learning environment catered to the pace your child feels comfortable with. Without the stress of worrying about being left behind or the boredom that can result from having to wait to move on, kids can work at the speed they prefer and learn in a way that is just right for them.
