Books _ Among the dozen or so math word_problem books of note published in the past decade, one, written by Mary Jane Sterling, from a well_known, popular brand of information books, which I'm unable to name here, stands out. The publisher has put a decent chunk of the book online at books.Google.com (go to books.google.com and search for sterling word problems). Striking Difference in Child Development _ If you are considering arranging extra math drills for your child, keep in mind that story problems are more like the real_life problems he or she will encounter, and, they help develop his or her critical_thinking skills. Children develop mental maturity like they do physical maturity. Think about the strikingly different mental development that ordinary math worksheets might foster in comparison to math word problems. Priorities _ Ordinary math worksheets certainly serve a purpose, but think carefully about the ratio of those to story problems when helping your child prioritize his or her available math study time.
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.
