Children naturally love counting and doing puzzles, but for some reason, when you call it "math", all of the interest flies out the window! So how can you cater to this natural love of 'math' and keep it fun and interesting enough to keep children's interest?!
Sort it out! The sky is the limit when it comes to finding things to sort! Candy, beans, cotton balls, paper clips... you name it! You can even change around how you want it sorted... one time, sort by color, the next time sort by size or shape! My son had a BLAST when I pulled his Matchbox cars to the school table and we sorted them by color! For younger children, you can make it easier by having 'color cards' and have them match the specific objects to the correct card. Older children can just be told to sort out the items by color, shape, etc.
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.
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.
