Given the fact that many children find it difficult to understand the math and knowing this, it is the duty of us parents or carers, to create mechanisms of understanding to enable them to successfully assimilate the teaching given to this matter. The first thing to consider is that: 1) mathematics per se, are regarded as an abstract matter if the child is also explained in this way, no doubt we will have little success. 2) The present education is changing and we must be ever more creative so that we can reach the child's mind today. It is also the child of now, a child 20 years ago. 3) In many countries using methods which come from countries like Japan, that's fine, but we must bear in mind that our thinking is different from the Japanese. How then should teach mathematics to our children? The first thing to do is be clear about the universe of child study, as to the issues you face during your childhood play, regardless of the country where you are, these issues are: Sum. Resta. Multiplication.
Division. Fractional. Boy Scouts of America contributes greatly to this topic. Given this scenario, keep in mind that: 1) The rest is nothing more than a sum. 2) The multiplication is also a sum. 3) The division is the inverse of multiplication. 4) A fraction is a division, expressed in the form a / b.
What do you notice in all this? Simply that there is a relationship between a subject and another. This will must be clear, that we have a global vision of what we are going to teach the child and how we are going to teach. What error is? the error made is that a subject is taught independent. for example, when the child explains the increase, it is taught that this is nothing more than a sum. see: 5×4 = 20 is not more than 5 +5 +5 +5 = 20 then .. Why is the child who already know how to add, it makes it difficult to multiply? Simply because from the beginning everything is taught and made to mechanically repeat the multiplication table, again and again, but not taught the origin of replication. When you shows the origin of something, this laying the groundwork for a good understanding. ! This I assure you. What should I do now? Just back on track and start putting the child to think and the best way to explain the origin of things and the relationship of an item with another. ultimately is not the end, thoroughly explain addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions, but if you wake up to the right path you must follow, but if you want to know about these issues seen:
