Math help in Katy, TX.

06/10/2015
 Is your child struggling with math? Summer vacation is a great time for your child to use math concepts they learned in the previous school year. If you think your child would benefit from math help, consider going to The Tutoring Center for one-on-one tutoring. The Tutoring Center offers year round tutoring in a variety of subjects. Whether your child struggles with math or not you can use this summer vacation to turn everyday activities into mini math lessons.

Time in the Car

You may find yourself running errands with your child more often during the summer months when school is out. Have your child calculate how long it will take to drive to different locations while running errands. You can have them estimate either mileage or the time it will take to arrive. 

Filling up at the Gas Station 

When stopping to refill the car with gas, ask your child to calculate what the highest and lowest gas price will be based on the gas stations you have passed. Also ask them how much money you would save or lose by going to a different gas station.  

Shopping

Take advantage of summertime sales by using store discounts as a math lesson for your child. The next time you are out shopping with your child, ask how much you will save if you buy an item that is on sale. Continue doing this with different sale items throughout the store. It is amazing how much they will be using percentages and fractions when calculating the final cost of items on sale. You also use math at the grocery store. Have your child add a quantity of fruit like apples or have them add up how much an orange and apple would cost together. 

These fun and educational summer math ideas are brought to you from The Tutoring Center.
