The idea that an understanding of math and language fundamentals helps children do better in schools is not surprising. However, the degree to which early math skills play a role is. "The paramount importance of early math skills - of beginning school with a knowledge of numbers, number order and other rudimentary math concepts -- is one of the puzzles coming out of the study," said Duncan.
Weekly Expenses Report- The weekly expenses worksheet is where you will list all your spending for the week. This includes things you buy using cash, check, or credit card. At the end of the week you will transfer these transactions to your Monthly Expense Record. Monthly Expense Record- On this worksheet you will record all your spending for the month in the appropriate categories. At the end of the month, this will give you an exact amount of money that you spend in all categories.
The answer for the above question is hidden in a simple example. I always give the example of stairs to my students, and giving the same example in this article. I compare the steps of a staircase to the concepts in mathematics. As this is very hard to reach higher floors of a building without stairs (or elevators these days), same way learn higher concepts in mathematics without learning basic concepts is very hard. People have to start from the ground, then first step, second, third and so on to reach their destination floor. Exactly the same way students have to start from Kindergarten, then grade one, grade two and three and so on to reach their math destination. Also, if some of the steps are broken in the staircase, it is still hard to reach the desired floor using those steps. Same way, if you are missing some of the basic concepts from elementary grades, math for you is still hard.
You can find worksheets for a wide range of courses--almost any course you want to teach your children. These include spelling, writing, English, history, math, music, geography, and others. They are also available for nearly all grade levels. There are printable middle school, high school, elementary school, and even pre-school worksheets. There are other sources for worksheets also. You can find many public schools and private schools which will provide free worksheets for you if you buy textbooks from the school. Or you can usually find textbooks and workbooks at the public library, where you can also copy any worksheets that you want to use. So what kinds of worksheets should you get? Anything where you feel that your child needs further drill. We often have this notion that worksheets are just for math. This, of course, is not true. While they are excellent tools for reviewing math facts such as the multiplication tables and division facts, they are just as useful for reviewing parts of speech or the states in the union.
Many children are being left behind due to lack of math skills. Schools today seem to do a poor job of preparing students for math at the middle and high school level. Here are 5 tips that parents can use to help their child be successful at math. Start early. Before your child goes to preschool, they need to be familiar with small numbers, up to 10. Two is easy to teach and point out. Pair of socks, shoes, etc. Five fingers on a hand and toes on feet. Ten total fingers and toes. At the preschool level, start counting up to 20. Add small numbers, 1 plus 1 is 2. 2 plus 1 is 3. You can even begin the fraction of one half. Half a sandwich, and other food items are a great start. When finishing kindergarten, your child needs to be able to count past 20 and know what larger numbers mean as well. Not working with them, just be familiar.
Virtually any expense you have can be put into one of these categories. So your worksheet should have plenty of space or data entry "cells" within these major categories. Compare your Monthly Spend to a Standard Guideline. Once you put your numbers in, how do you compare to the national average or some other standard guideline? The budgeting worksheet should give you some idea of how you compare in each of the above categories. Then you can make some decisions if you are over or under spending in some areas. The beauty of using worksheets is not only to see where your money is going but to see how you compare to a standard guideline.
During classroom time, you can even make division activities more interactive. Create groups of students in the classroom and give them all some objects like marbles, or other small objects. You can tell your students how many they have, and how they should divide out the marbles with their friends. This will quickly help them understand the basics of division, and added onto an understanding of adding, subtracting and multiplying they will soon be on their way to understanding more complex parts of their mathematics curriculum. Keep your students interested, and if you are helping your children, remember to keep encouraging them. No matter how hard they find it, they will soon get the hang of it.
