Hire a good math tutor: Parents should choose an experienced tutor for their children. An experienced subject expert can only assist his/her student in a better way. Neither parents can be available all the time nor do they help their children in all subjects. Therefore, taking learning help from proficient professionals is the best way to get knowledge on each topic. They can choose online tutors, as well. While choosing a tutor, parents should check some information such as the qualification and experience and the flexibility in terms of time.
There are some new materials being developed now based on what we are learning about how the brain learns. These brain_friendly materials should be an improvement over what has existed. I recently bought a book by Marcia L. Tate titled "Mathematics Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites." I highly recommend her book. She gives a great deal of information on alternative activities that are better for your child's brain development and for learning.
