According to the research, solid early mathematics skills are the strongest predictor of future academic success; greater than early reading skills, attention skills, and socioeconomic factors! So what early math skills are most important? The research focuses on "school-entry math skills" such as understanding small numbers (up to 30), quantities, and simple shapes. In addition, being able to count, compare, sort, and describe objects (up to 30) are considered core kindergarten math skills. A host of online tools are available to help young children improve their math and reading skills and technology has made great strides in the past several years in areas related to children has educational software. However, many of the technical advances may be overwhelming for young learners. Websites with 3D graphics and online virtual worlds ("edutainment") may be a useful tool for older children looking to build skills while having fun on the computer. However, younger children can be easily distracted by the overuse of technology in many of these programs.
With the dawning of technology, there is no need to hate Math at school or when practicing at home. With a Math software, children starts to develop their confidence and increase their math skills with simple arithmetic calculations. Learners practice performing simple calculations, without the aid of a calculator, as well as to develop recognition and recall of answers to math practice problems at a pace that they can handle with confidence. Other interactive math software programs have a reading and comprehension level that is appropriate for Grades 3 and up and are valuable tools for students in upper elementary and middle school, who are looking to build confidence in performing basic math operations quickly.
These children often rebel against a system that has failed to accommodate their needs and a small but significant minority can exert a disproportionately disruptive influence within schools before eventually disengaging with the formal learning process altogether. This, asserts Professor Barbara, has serious implications for us all. Craig Rama of the University of Alabama appears to provide compelling evidence in support of this theory. "Seventy-five percent of all imprisoned males in America have poor school records and low IQs," Rama pointed out. "Tracing their backgrounds turns up a familiar pattern: They begin as children from disadvantaged families starting school academically behind. They do not know how to read or do basic math because they are in poor systems they get little help. Growing frustration often turns into truancy, school failure, aggression and violence."
