As children explore and discover the things around them in life, they are exposed to the world of mathematics. Here at The Tutoring Center in Middletown, Delaware, we know the importance of learning mathematics. It is one of the three basic ingredients to a well-rounded education. Here are some tips to help you guide your child into learning conceptual math.

Encouraging your child to solve problems, communicate mathematically, and demonstrate reasoning abilities will help improve his or her understanding and interest in math concepts and thinking.

Problem Solving

This means investigating, exploring solutions, considering many different answers to a 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.Communicate MathematicallyUsing words, numbers, or mathematical symbols to explain situations. 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 Abilities

Thinking logically, being able to see similarities and differences about things, making choices based on those differences, and determining relationships between things. You can encourage your child to explain the different ways he or she can come to a solution to 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

Doing math in your head is important. Using a calculator is ok because it demands 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.
