Figures, Fractions, Signs and Symbols are part of the exciting world of mathematics. Some kids dislike math with a passion and this sometimes has to do with one simple fact _ the way they have been taught. Maybe it was just one bad experience in elementary school but somehow it served to seal their fate and from then on math was just a bad word.
Don't forget that your efforts with your child's learning are as valuable as the efforts of their teachers. You can have a huge effect on your child's learning at home, by encouraging them to try hard and do well in their studies. There are a number of things you can do at home to enhance your child's mathematical skills if they appear to be struggling with their math studies at school.
