4 Reasons Kids Struggle With Maths and How We can Help
Addition,Subtraction,Multiplication,division,fractions,equations are not difficult to do. But many children have maths fear. What is the reason behind and how we can address the problem?
1.Concepts not revised during classroom sessions
The concepts done in the class should be revised on a regular basis. The concepts in maths are generally linked to one another. If at the start of the concept, the child has not understood well. Then he would struggle every time in the next class. For example if multiplication is not understood well. Then any questions related to it algebra will be difficult for the student to do.
2. Maths terminology is not clear:
Its important for the children to understand the meaning of the concept terms like HCF,LCM, factors. If the terms are not understood well, children will keep memorizing it and keep on forgetting after some time. The students need to be familiarised with the terms.
3. Not Practicing Every Day
Many students start their practice when the exams are approaching. Rather it has to happen every day. Even when the exams are not there. Students need to revise the concepts and their questions on regular basis.
4. Students don’t practice Mock Tests.
Remember every school does preboard exams just before the board exams in India. This gives the students reality check of the students academic level. Accordingly children can learn from the mistakes and improvise in the next exam.
Students in every class before any test should be given sample tests at home for practice. Making mistakes here, they would improvise for the final test.
