Introducing
MATHEMATICS Kim Freeman

Every child wants to play in the afternoon and get rid of the cares of the school
day. However if a parent provides a place and a time for learning or for going over
homework, they will be surprised to find that their child quickly adapts and will
actually look forward each day to the experience.

HOW CAN I MOTIVATE MY CHILD?

Communication is important. By becoming enthusiastic and involved, you are sending
your child a positive message about learning. For children it is more fun to do any
activity when parents or older sisters and brothers are keen to take part.

HOW CAN I MAKE THE BEST USE OF THIS BOOK?

Book 5 at this level is a complete beginner math book. It teaches how to count and
write the numbers from 1 to 10. It then introduces arithmetic and all the
arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication (times) and division.
Always try to reinforce the concepts found in this book. For example at the
supermarket ask your child to get 2 cartons of milk and 3 loaves of bread. Ask how
many items that is altogether. Before getting a treat get them to count from 20 to
0 backwards. Ask them to count all the shopping to see if you can go to the 12 or
less items counter. There are lots of math examples in everyday activities.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD DOES NOT GET THE ANSWERS CORRECT?

All children learn at different rates. The important thing is to remain positive and
praise what has been done right. Use other examples and talk about what has gone
wrong. Rub out their answers then let them try that page again. Practice and
repetition will lead to increased confidence in math..

HOW LONG SHOULD MY CHILD SPEND ON MATHEMATICS?

If a child works for 15 minutes a day, they are completing nearly 2 hours extra
work per week and over 90 hours per year. This is extra to their regular school
lessons and is setting a pattern for later years.

Most children will need to be encouraged to start an activity, however do not force
them. Help them start by reading through and explaining any instructions. Reward
their efforts with more encouragement. Above all, instill an enjoyment of math and
its challenges. Success and confidence in any subject inevitably lead to an
enjoyment of learning. We hope that you and your child have fun as they learn with
the Mighty Math series. At Mahobe, we certainly had fun putting it all together
for you.
