If you are a swing trader or a position trader, it is easier to maintain a trade-by-trade trading journal. However, a day trader or active trader may find it difficult to document each trade, so a general sentiment of how he is maintaining his system and the overall sentiment on the day may be more appropriate. As you learn some of the various risk management techniques, it will become simpler to use a trading journal on a per-trade basis. Until then, let's take our time.
I have observed teachers who really challenge their students to achieve higher order thinking These teachers take their students as early as the Second Grade and teach them how to add, subtract, multiply and divide using only their bran. We call this Mental Math. When I observed a Second Grade Class that had their students mentally answering math computation questions, I put my own son in that class. Shortly after being enrolled, He, too, learned how to do Mental Math. From that point on, math was my son's best subject. Teachers can really make a difference and parents can help affect change.
Parents can assist with developing a lot of the fundamental skills needed for children to succeed in math when they attend school. Parents can do things that will support the schools and hopefully the schools will do the rest.
School administrators are responsible for choosing the type of curriculum taught to children. As long as they are learning, the curriculum is considered effective. Using computer games as a tool is one option available to today's schools.
