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.
That still leaves the problem of memorizing a string of numbers, and here’s where the magic is. Teach children to skip count to the tune of a simple song. Have you ever wondered why children can learn the lyrics to songs so easily? It is because music can be used as a Mnemonic device, that is a strategy to assist with memorization. If you can associate the numbers with the sounds in a song, the children will not only learn them faster, but retain them much longer than they would memorizing them exclusively through repetition.
The goal of kindergarten math curriculum is to prepare children for first grade math:
~ To count by rote at least to 20, but preferably a little beyond.
~ The concepts of equality, more, and less.
~ To count backwards from 10 to 0.
~ To recognize numbers.
~ To be able to write numbers.
~ To recognize basic shapes.
~ To understand up, down, under, near, on the side, etc. (basic directions).
~ To understand the concepts of addition and subtraction with small numbers.
~ Expose the student to two-digit numbers.
Many people have difficulties in the area of algebra mathematics. Many attempts to read books attend lessons and research the web to find information, interactive lessons and websites that could help them improve their algebra skills. Interactive learning is a lot more fun than reading algebra books but is that enough to make someone good at algebra? The concept of algebra has to be fully understood before one can have full knowledge of mathematics.
