Maths is Fun

There are not many children out there that will think that maths is fun! That's a fact. It is widely known that maths is one of the most misunderstood subjects you encounter. Why is this? Children seem to freeze up when they see a mathematical problem in front of them - it is difficult for them to digest the problem properly and they have problems keeping interest from start to finish.

Now how many of us out there still have problems with maths - be honest! I have no problems with basic mathematics and are able to shoot off answers for day to day problems. It's when these problems become larger and more complicated I struggle a little, especially when I'm in company - I would never really comfortably agree that maths is fun for me.

If you have children the last thing you really want to do is pass on your fear of maths to them - this is where the idea of 'maths is fun' comes from. Making things fun for children will at least give you a fighting chance to get through to them and hold their interest to the end of an explanation. If a child or youngster loses interest then you've just about had it.

By showing children that maths is fun you can cut the workload in half. Fun games will always add an element of competition into a child's learning curve. This is great - kids love to compete against each other and in turn they love to getting recognition for coming out on top.

By introducing this 'maths is fun' technique you are putting a very positive vibe into proceedings, remember - you really do not want to put your dislike of maths onto your child. From an early age you should really having been introducing your child to simple maths books with fun problems ( for example counting how many rabbits in a field or on the page ). By doing this you are creating a number-friendly child with a number-friendly atmosphere to study in.

If your child tires of the day to day novelty maths problem books then you always have the option of buying a math DVD as an alternative. Sure, this will cost you more money than a couple of books but there is a big advantage with them. Some children prefer to 'see' what a solution to a problem is instead of 'read' what it is. Remember - maths is fun if approached in the right manner.
