Chalk Talk: Teaching Math at Home
The best way to learn and understand math is by actually using. Parents can support their children's ability to use math in many different ways that are appropriate for kids of all ages. Early on, cooking and baking can help a child understand fractions, which is a concept many children struggle with. Also, projects at home that involve measuring and spatial relations give children a hands-on way to learn some geometry. Another way to teach math skills, particularly to children as they get older, is by helping them learn about budgeting and introducing them to various concepts in saving and investing. Parents can also discussing borrowing, credit and interest with kids so they understand what that is about. Not only do they learn math, but it increases their awareness of personal financial literacy.
