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.
School administrators, teachers and parents are also able to use the computer-based programs much like the former means of checking math worksheets on students' homework.
There was a time that the United States of America had some of the highest mathematic scores in the world for students in grades k through 12. A lot has changes since those days, and in order to help children get back on the path to being good mathematical students parents need to play an important role.
While the newer method does require computer access for every child, most schools now have that capability. As children do more hands-on learning on computers and less in books, these programs are capable of reaching them on a level they can understand.
