Does your student struggle with basic math facts?
Is rote memorization the answer? I don’t think it is.
Although memorizing is certainly necessary, the path to remembering should be fun.
As a child, I wrote my math facts out over an over and over to help me remember them. In this new technological age, there are many new techniques for memorization. As children play games, they don’t even realize that they are learning.
No matter how your child learns, there is a fun web site out there that can help.
- COOL MATH is just what it says—very cool math games to engage and entertain. http://www.coolmath.com/
- AAA MATH is a great website with supplemental lessons. The website is broken down by grade level and subject so you can find just the right information to help your student. http://www.aaamath.com/
- MATH CATS is an interesting site. It is broken in to 6 different sections, but our favorite area is Math Cats Explore. http://www.mathcats.com/
