ALEKS, my personal favorite, uses artificial intelligence software to routinely assess what a student actually knows, reinforce the areas that they need extra help in, and moves them through a pie chart of skills with interactive lessons and explanations that students view along the way. Periodically, new assessments are given and the software individually redesigns the material that your student needs to learn to tailor a math course that is unique to each student. Rather than having chapter tests, students work to complete the entire pie chart. The course is complete when the student has 100% mastery, so the foundation of skills is very strong when a student completes the course. In any math program, students should also practice self-checking and use a Critique System for evaluating their personal problem areas, but with regular evaluations such as these and solid online math programs, students can significantly change the way they feel about math, as well as their skill in math. Online math is an excellent option worth considering, certainly for home-schoolers, but also for any students who want to brush up on skills over the summer.
In first grade it is essential that your child begin basic math facts. Most schools do a good job at starting basic math facts. From second grade to third, you need to ensure that your child becomes an expert on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing all numbers between 0 and 12. You may need to get copies of worksheets or flash cards. This is the MOST important step that you can do to start the groundwork of your student being successful in math. Too many children today go through the first 6 grades lacking these skills. Without it, they cannot do fractions or any other higher concept. At the fourth grade level, and perhaps earlier, your child needs to be an expert on fractions. Anything and everything. Again, worksheets and extra instruction are probably a must. This will be an impossible task if your child has not followed through on tip #5 above.
Practice, practice and practice. For this you can use math worksheets or math workbooks.If you take the proven path, one day you might say, "Math is not hard." If your kids or students need help with fractions, visit one of our associate site for free fractions worksheets, and lessons on all levels of fractions from grade one to grade eight. To find specialty lessons and worksheets for 2nd grade math we have a special site for kids in 2nd grade and can be visited by clicking the above link. For more math tips, content and worksheets keep visiting this site for my new articles. Recent research data from six longitudinal studies covering over 36,000 preschoolers was analyzed to determine factors important for school success in children preparing for kindergarten. According to Northwestern University research Greg Duncan, "We find the single most important factor in predicting later academic achievement is that children begin school with a mastery of early math and literacy concepts."
