Mathematics skills can improve with just one technique _practice! Most of the children end up petrified of numbers and number games because of lack of appropriate knowledge. All this is a result of poor teaching mechanics. The vast school curriculum does not teach the children the perfect way of learning the subject. It's only proper practice and regularity that can make a student reach perfection! Do worksheets help a child?
Step 2: Work on the Skill _ Once he has met the skill, it is time for him to take baby steps on his and work on it. I will usually print off 5 sets of math worksheets on a topic. There are many great places to find these available. On the first worksheet, I let him work completely independently with no outside help at all. If he gets stuck, he gets stuck. We then go over everything together. I bought a piece of white board and eraser able marker; I show him how I would do the problem on this board. It makes it easy for him to see. How we do the second and third sheet depends on his success of the first page. If he did well, I let him work on those by himself. If he struggled, he will do all problems on the white board. The fourth sheet he does totally independently. We review that sheet and save the last math worksheet to be done a day after we complete this process, as a review.
