Show Your Child the Importance of Learning Math

The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell knows the importance of math in a child’s educational path and adult life and dedicated the previous post to help your child learn math at home. Continuing with this theme, below are two more great activities for parents to teach their children the importance of math.

Teach With Your Bills

It’s important for all families to get the most out of their household budget, and one of the easiest and best ways to do this is with your shopping list and associated mini-budget. The next time that you are preparing your budget, involve your children and use the activity as a teaching platform:
  • Identify times of the day when your usage is at its highest.
  • Locate price differences between periods of the day.
  • Use the rate sheet of another provider to calculate any savings of switching.
  • Calculate the benefits of moving usage to another time period.
  • Consider the previous bill and the current bill to generate an estimate for the next billing period.
The calculations required for this activity are a little above the basic level and can be great lessons to help develop math skills.

Kitchen Lessons

The next time that you are preparing your family dinner, instead of your children sitting on the couch or watching movies, invite them to join you and make the activity a teaching one:
  • Look for a recipe written using the metric system and ask your children to convert the items and instructions.
  • Find a recipe which serves too many people ask your children to calculate new portions.
  • Put your children in charge of measuring all items required.
  • If you are using packet items, ask your children to calculate how much will remain once you use what you need.
