Tips to Help Your Child Practice Their Math Skills This Summer

Math can be a tricky subject for most students, meaning they are a lot less willing to practice it. Because of this, getting your child to practice their math skills during the summer can prove to be a challenge. The Tutoring Center, Kansas City MO has some tips to help you get your child to practice their math this summer break.

Play Math Games

An easy way to get your child to practice their math skills this summer is by playing board games that involve math. Simple addition and subtraction can be practiced using board games such as Monopoly, just be sure to have your child be the banker. There are also fun computer games and applications you can download to your tablet or phone that can be used to practice math. Keep in mind that when technology is involved children are less likely to realize they're learning while playing.

Everyday Math Practice

To keep your child's mind active, encourage daily math practice by including it in daily activities. For example, turn a trip to the grocery store or the mall into math practice. While grocery shopping, have your child count the amount of fruit you place in a bag or have them help you weigh the produce. Your child can also estimate the total cost of your groceries and the amount of change you should get back when checking out. A trip to the mall can help your child master percentages and fractions. Look for items that are on sale and have your child calculate their final price.

Summer Math Tutoring

If your child needs more specialized math help, enroll your child in summer tutoring. A tutor can help your child strengthen areas that they struggled with during the school year and even help prepare them for their upcoming math classes. A tutor will also be able to address your child's specific learning style in order to make sure they get the most out of every lesson.
