Re: Learning Mathematics
It depends on the child. Memorization isn't always easy for some kids that learn best visually. You can teach them practical maths, such as measuring when cooking and building things. You can teach them about money and how to save and work out a small budget with their allowance. After they've mastered their shapes you can start teaching them the mathematical dynamics of that shape. It doesn't always have to be sitting down and writing out lines upon lines of equations and getting them to recite tables. They do enough of that in school. Why not make it interesting and relevant to them at home?
