Improve Mental Math Skills

Math can be quite intimidating for some students, but working on their mental math skills can make it all less daunting. To help your child sharpen their mental math abilities and lose some of the stress around math, use these tips.

Break Down Problems

If your child is just staring at a long math problem because they don't know where to start, help them dive in by breaking down the problem into smaller, more manageable parts. Once it's broken down, they'll likely be able to solve a number of these smaller operations in their head, making it all much less intimidating.

Learn Multiplication Tricks

Multiplication comes up often in most math classes, so it's best for students to have their multiplication tables mastered. Help your child master these by teaching them some simple multiplication tricks. For example, teach your child that any number multiplied by 5 will end either in a 0 or a 5. If they have to multiply a large number by 5, it may be easier to multiply it by 10 and then divide it by 2.

Play Math Games

Math games are perfect for practicing math skills while having a good time. Download some fun math apps or games onto your phone or tablet and pull these out when your child has a bit of downtime, such as in the waiting room at the doctor's office or when running errands together.
