For kids that have a basic interest in math, try using daily riddles to keep them thinking throughout the day. At breakfast, you may ask your child a riddle like, "What number has three tens and four ones?" or, "What is a mathematician s favorite dessert?" Your child can take the day to think about the riddle and tell you the answer when you are working on math practice worksheets after school!
Math is a subject of great divide: some kids love it, and other kids hate it! You can help make math fun by providing variety, engaging materials like fun math worksheets, and academic support.
Turn everyday activities into fun math practice. If your child is eating waffles for breakfast, see if he can divide a waffle into halves or quarters. Younger children might be able to count the number of waffle grooves while older children might be able to calculate the waffle s circumference.
Challenge your students with creative mathematics lessons, printable worksheets, activities, quizzes, and more during Math Education Month (April)—or anytime of the year! Focus on various mathematical themes, such as geometry, algebra, probability and statistics, money, measurement, and more! Incorporating other subjects—such as art, reading, and science—into your math lessons will help hold your students interest in the subject.
