To get your child ready to tackle 3rd grade math with confidence, it is time to introduce learning aids at home. Most parents assume that worksheets, word problems and visual representations are the most helpful tools, but many forget the importance of online tools that offer educational value. If you choose the right programs, you can help pave the way for success for your child by incorporating fun, challenging games that promote the learning and understanding of 3rd grade math. Many online math games are designed purely for entertainment and will not do much in terms of teaching your child. While these games can be fun and engaging for third graders, you want to choose games that will practice the skills being taught in school. Look for games and puzzles that are part of an adaptive learning program. This means that the online games are well-thought out and match the same set of skills that are being taught in the third grade curriculum. The program is structured toward each individual student and fills in the gaps where the child is struggling.
Each grade act as a step in the whole staircase to the mathematics high-rise building. Performing poor in math in any grade is like breaking some steps in the whole staircase. As broken steps make the whole staircase risky or scary to use in the future, incomplete math competencies in lower grades make math very hard in the high school. So, what it takes to be smart in mathematics? My answer is; stay focused on math in each and every level of your studies. Participate in your class math practice sessions. Ask your teacher lots of questions until you are not clear about any concept. Mathematics is a subject of solving the problems on paper by hand rather than only to read them. As in case of Social Studies taking more readings make you smart, in math practicing lots of problems and solving them by hand makes you smart.
Practice, practice and practice. For this you can use math worksheets or math workbooks.If you take the proven path, one day you might say, "Math is not hard." If your kids or students need help with fractions, visit one of our associate site for free fractions worksheets, and lessons on all levels of fractions from grade one to grade eight. To find specialty lessons and worksheets for 2nd grade math we have a special site for kids in 2nd grade and can be visited by clicking the above link. For more math tips, content and worksheets keep visiting this site for my new articles. Recent research data from six longitudinal studies covering over 36,000 preschoolers was analyzed to determine factors important for school success in children preparing for kindergarten. According to Northwestern University research Greg Duncan, "We find the single most important factor in predicting later academic achievement is that children begin school with a mastery of early math and literacy concepts."
Interactive math games for first graders allow young students to play their way to a deeper understanding of numerical concepts. Addressing addition, subtraction and other first grade math skills through games helps make learning fun and expands a child has academic experience beyond the traditional classroom setting. By merging print materials with technology, both teachers and parents can aid children in becoming more proficient with the concepts they will need to be successful in school and in daily life.
Play a magnetic fish game with cardboard fish with a paper-clip and a piece of dowel and string with a magnet on the end as a fishing rod. Count the fish in the pond. When one gets caught subtraction how many are left? Division can be as simple as a sharing exercise. "There are 4 people here and I have 8 counters. Let us see how many we will get each". Use play dough or counters or blocks to make groups of items. Talk about what happens when you put groups together (multiplication). Make the terminology you use simple. This age group need simple language instead of mathematical terms. These activities are laying the foundations for further learning.
Every child learns at a different rate, but it has important to remember that all children should be able to grasp similar concepts once they have completed first grade math. Without the ability to count, add, subtract and understand basic relationships between all three, progression to higher math becomes difficult. Though online math games can not be used to teach everything a child needs to know, they can be an invaluable tool when it comes to augmenting what is learned in the classroom. Games supply a different context and more interactive setting than worksheets and are also more dynamic, which gives kids a new way to think about the concepts they are learning and can shed light on things they may be having trouble with.The interactive world of online games makes first grade math enjoyable for young children and allows them to practice new math concepts outside of school. Both parents and teachers can use these tools to enhance traditional learning, thereby giving kids a unique and entertaining way to hone necessary math skills.
Moreover, some math software programs are available also in different languages such as Spanish and French. There are also those with a Learning Management System (LMS) that automatically tracks students test scores and provides the teacher with a database to sort and print as needed. Kindergarten and 1st grade math students will be able to start at the beginning with the basic concepts of relative position followed by counting and number sequences. Second grade math students and third grade math students will benefit from practicing sequences before moving on to addition and subtraction. Fourth grade math students may first review addition before moving on to multiplication. While fifth grade math students will review the basics of multiplication before learning the detailed steps of long division. When reaching sixth grade, students will benefit from reviewing the material studied in previous years and supplement with challenging worksheets including the concept of time, geometry, figural analogies and much more.
