One of the first thing you can do with a young child is to try and incorporate basic math into day_to_day life. Children might find that studying math at school is not the most exciting thing, so it's your job to try and make it more exciting at home. There's a few simple ways you can do this that perhaps you'd never thought of before. One great way of getting your child involved with math at home is to let them help you with the cooking or baking. This is a perfect way to teach them about proportions, as they can help you decide how much of one ingredient needs to be used in comparison to another. Cooking can also help reinforce fraction skills as well a measurement when adding specific amounts of ingredients.

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.
