Math Can Be Made Simple

“The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple.” ~ by  S. Gudder
Do any of these phrases sound familiar?
“The math I am learning in school is never going to be used in real life”
“I hate math”
“Math is too hard”
“ I do not have any math homework (translation: I don’t understand it)”
As a parent and educator, I have heard these phrases and more whenever the topic of math is mentioned. A firm grasp of mathematical concepts, though necessary, can be scary at any age.
Below are three ways to make math  more hands on, practical, and fun.
1. Use snack time to teach your student about sharing (fractions).
2. Have your student help you make a meal using a recipe (fractions, proportions).
3. Take your student grocery shopping, with a list and set dollar amount and have them keep track of how much  money is being spent (adding & subtracting money and budgeting).
I can not promise that your student will love math, but together we can take some of the sting out of learning math.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

May be this is true. However, understanding all of the math formulas is much easy and people can learn math well.

It is fear that makes it hard for students to understand Mathematics. Math is precise. There is a specific method to solving a problem. I don't believe that some people just have an affinity for Math. It can be learned. Just don't give up easily.

Math is very essential to learn though it is difficult for others. It helps to be good at reasoning, critical thinking, problem-solving ability and other skills related to this. We use math concepts in our lives without us noticing it. Mathematics is significant around us, without understanding it properly, we can encounter problems. It helps to reason out and organized complicated situations into good one. Well, not all of us like math and that is a fact, we may not help them to love it, but we can make them appreciate it through teaching our children on how to solve problems while they were still young.

I hated Math when I was a grade schooler. I did not like it either, when I got to high school and college. Now, as an adult in my late 30's, I wish I can undo things all over again. If I can, I would have studied Math diligently back when I was still in school. Learning Math stimulates the sharpness of the brain. So, it is very helpful students take Math seriously when they are learning it.
