Maths at home!

Albert Einstein 
Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics, I assure you that mine are greater.

Believe it or not

  • Maths is inevitable
  • Learning maths is not a Big problem as it seems
  • It can be  fun though conditionally  😦
  • Be positive about maths

Remember

  • In the beginning  might need more time
  • Be focussed
  • Follow all chapters from maths book, skipping can be troublesome at later stage
  • If possible ( it is advisable to ) keep your old maths books
  • Never consider yourself dumb/stupid.  Everyone is capable of learning maths,   if proper training, time and attention is provided.

Plan of action

  • Make a list of topics which are not clear to you
  • Try to get help from maths teacher, parents or hire a tutor (part time)  asap.  Revise solved examples from the previous years.  Being late will turn up costly in terms of money, time and energy
  • Make sure that your basics  are clear.

For parents – help your child learn maths

  • It is a good idea to keep a number chart from 1 to 100 at home. This chart will help in understanding the number system.
  •  Make a routine to discuss everyday math at home
  • Kids should learn  addition in the best possible way.
  • It is worth to spend time in  learning and memorizing multiplication tables, preferably from 2 to 20.
  • Many kids are afraid of word problems. Help them reading and understanding the statements.
