I have seen a lot of kids quickly pass off their 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. These tables have an obvious pattern and are much easier to learn. Then there is a serious slow down as kids hit the 3’s, 4’s, and 6’s. By the time they get to the 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s they’ve decided that multiplication is way too hard, and math isn’t their thing.
Addition is the foundation of arithmetic. If you practice the above-mentioned methods, it will improve your subtraction skills too. Apart from these methods, make use of math work books. Write down each number in the box and then use methods discussed above.
Practicing addition with your child is a great way to get him excited about math! Young kids who are beginning to learn addition often need to see a visual representaion of any given problem. Many kids will use their fingers and toes, but make things more fun by using counters. You can use pieces of cereal, beads, mini marshmallows or anything you would like. Kids love switching things up with large-sized counters, so bust out pillows or purses to make learning addition even more fun.
Math worksheets are particularly useful while adding larger numbers or decimals. Practice the math problems from the workbooks and solve them. Thus, learn these five methods and solve the math efficiently.
