Students definitely grasp the lessons easier when their studies are combined with games. These methods are ideal if you find it difficult to add large numbers. Students studying at advanced level may also find these methods helpful and improve their addition skills. These games can also be adapted to most math skills. The games are fun and students forget they are learning.
Children will be learning at school how to round up decimals to the nearest whole number. A fun way to practise this at home is to use regular dominos and establish that each piece is a decimal number (so a domino one with 3 dots and 4 dots is 3.4). Encourage them to play with the dominos, but with the rule that they can only, for example, join 2 dominos that are within 1.5 of each other. This will really get them thinking about what each decimal point represents. A number line can also be useful when rounding decimals.
In KS2 children are taught that decimals are another way of writing fractions. The hundred number square is a really good way of showing children the equivalence between fractions and decimals.
Never underestimate how much a visual representation of what can otherwise appear to be an abstract concept can help children learn.
