Anything less could cause children to suffer a tremendous loss. The teacher that parents should be trusting to teach their child math is a person that will challenge their child regardless of their age. In addition to the challenges, the teacher should encourage children to try hard. Children need to know that their teacher cares about them and is not just trying to give them a lot of hard work.
They can start with asking simple math questions and going on to harder questions, as the child gets older. Parents should continually ask children mathematical computation questions and give positive feedback when they respond. Children love to receive positive feedback and that encourages continues growth.
Parents who are positively involved with their children and want the best for them will make sure their children are keeping up with their math skills and are successful in school.
Another strategy involves allowing your child to spend some time on a computer playing math games. The computer can be a wonderful resource that supports math and other subject area skills. Software is available that will measure a child's math skill level.
