Math is one of the most difficult subjects for children to learn. Parents can help their young children grasp complicated math concepts by playing games. Very young children can learn to count with simple games. As they get older and begin to learn addition and subtraction, the counting games can be revised to help students master math facts.
Because addition is only counting, the same games that children played to help them learn to count to 10, 20 and 100 can help them learn to add. When they have mastered counting, children can progress to skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s. Skip counting is an easy way to remember many of the math facts.
Learning to count backward is another skill that will help children as they learn to add and subtract. Because subtraction is merely counting in reverse, children who are skilled at backward counting quickly grasp the concept of subtraction.Can’t get enough?
