 Encouraging your child to solve problems, communicate mathematically, and demonstrate reasoning abilities will help improve his or her understanding and interest in math concepts. As children explore and discover the things around them, they are inevitably exposed to the world of mathematics. Here at The Tutoring Center in Katy, Texas we know the importance of learning mathematics. It is one of many concepts to a well-rounded education. Here are some tips to help you guide your child into learning conceptual math.

Solving Problems

This means investigating, exploring solutions, considering several different answers to one problem and applying math to everyday situations. Involving your child in family decision-making using math encourages your child to be a good problem solver.

Mathematical Communication

Using words, numbers, or mathematical symbols to explain situations is the ability to demonstrate how to arrive at an answer. Ask your child to explain a math problem by drawing a picture or writing out the process of how he or she arrived at an answer to the problem.

Reasoning

Thinking logically, determining relationships between things. Being able to see similarities and differences about things, making choices based on those differences. You can encourage your child to explain the different ways he or she can solve a problem. Learning math is not just finding the correct answer, it is also the process of solving problems and learning to apply it to new problems.

Mental Math

Being able to do math in your head is important. Regardless of what you may have heard, using a calculator is ok because it requires that your child puts in the correct information and that he knows if the answer is reasonable. Looking for the answer, he will determine if it makes sense, thus using mental math.
