Tips for improving mathematics for children

English Español

Mathematics is one of the most feared subjects by all. Although, to be honest, there are students very advanced in mathematics, who do not even need the support of professors or any other type of educational tool.

However, if you are not one of those lucky ones, you are interested in knowing different recommendations and tips to improve your relationship with mathematics. Below are shown.

Clarify all your doubts in classes

Mathematics generates many doubts in any student. Even mathematics for most children is a totally new area for them, they see it as a level of great difficulty.

Usually, they are the kind of doubts that trying to solve independently can take a lot of time and effort, and, even so, have no guarantee of being able to get the necessary answers.

Therefore, the best way to get out of doubt, in practically all cases, is to resort to the help of whoever facilitates the mathematics class. The professional in the subject is someone experienced and trained to explain in the best way the answer to your question.

After getting your answer, try to write it down in your notebook and if possible with an example and the most understandable explanation, because, probably, when you see the exercise at home again, you will have the same doubt again and do not remember.

Take all the necessary notes and do it your way

To understand mathematics anything goes. Thus, try to make all the notes that you consider necessary for its subsequent understanding. Although in class you feel you have understood it, probably when you get home you have already forgotten it and you need to resort to your notebook.

The notes do not have to be perfect and should not be meticulously organized as if you should present them to someone else. Actually, they should only interest you because you are the one who is going to use them.

In that sense, the appearance of the notes should not matter because if you focus too much on creating visually attractive ones you could waste a lot of concentration and not direct your attention to the rest of the class, being the really important thing.

Just take notes understandable enough to yourself. If you even need to use drawings or different symbols to understand yourself better, do it!

Practice as much as you can and more

One of the biggest mistakes when studying mathematics is to believe that having understood the first exercise or explanation of the teacher is already able to solve all the other problems related to the subject. Truth be told, it’s a pretty wrong idea.

Based on this, you should dedicate a relevant part of your time to studying and especially to practicing at home.
