Learning math skills can be frustrating and complicated for children. In order to make things easier, schools are using new programs to help children learn math in a fun and simple way, mimicking computer games.
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.
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.
Elementary teachers and parents play the biggest role in a child's mathematical development, especially from Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. Time spent in school learning math or not learning math can never be replaced. Parents should make sure the elementary math teacher is knowledgeable and is a good teacher.
