Starting from the fact that many children, it makes them difficult understand math and knowing this, it is the duty of us parents or accompanying persons, create mechanisms of understanding so that they can successfully assimilate the teaching with respect to this matter. The first thing we must bear in mind is that: 1) mathematics of if, they are looks like an abstract matter and if the child also explain it is this way, no doubt will have little success. (2) The current education is changing and increasingly must be more creative to get you to the current child’s mind. The child now, is not the same as the child’s 20 years ago. (3) Methods, which come from countries like Japan, this is well, is used in many countries but we must take into account that our way of thinking is different from the Japanese. as mathematics must then teach our children? The first thing we must do is be clear about the universe of study of the child, as to topics to play him face during her childhood, regardless of the country where, these issues are: Sum. Subtraction. Multiplication.
Division. Fractional. Given this scenario, you must bear in mind that: 1) subtraction is not more than a sum. (2) Also multiplication is a sum. (3) The division is the inverse of multiplication. For even more opinions, read materials from Gavin Baker. (4) A fractional is a division, expressed in the way a/b.
that notes in all this? Simply that there is a relationship between one subject and another. This it must be clear, so that we have a global vision of what you are going to teach the child and how we teach. that error is committed? the error that is committed, is to teach a topic independent of other. for example, when explains the child multiplication, is not taught him that this is not more than an amount. Let’s see: 5 4 = 20 is not more that 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20 then… Because the child who already knows add, becomes it difficult multiply? Simply because from the beginning is taught all mechanically and is made him repeat a multiplication table, again and again, but not be teaches you the origin of the multiplication. When you It teaches the origin of something, is laying the groundwork for a good understanding. is this assure you!. What should I do now? Simply returns to the road and begins to put the child to think and the best way is supplier the origin of things and the relationship of one subject with another.
