# Helping your child to understand maths while playing game

“MATHEMATICS IS LIKE TRUE LOVE- A SIMPLE IDEA BUT CAN GET COMPLICATED…” ~ Ricky Gakhar

Students are studding so many fascinating subjects in school career. But Mathematics……. is the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it. Some students find problem in solving the maths subject. If they have trouble counting or remembering basic math facts, it could be due to a learning issue called dyscalculia  (severe difficulty in making arithmetical calculations, as a result of brain disorder). Mastering mathematics is absolutely essential for future opportunities in school and careers.

Here are we decided to return to our childhood for a while and imagine how we’d have preferred to study mathematics.

## Fractions and clocks for the strong of heart

This one is for kids who have already learned fractions and hours, but still have trouble with the latter. It’s easy to explain fractions with the help of a clock, and all the quarters to and halves past will settle down better this way.

## Hopscotch

This is another great way to introduce numbers. Make big digits with duct tape on the floor and let the corridor become the arena for your little leaper. For advanced learners, make the task a bit more difficult by giving them math problems, where the solution is not a word but a certain number of jumps. Fun is guaranteed!

## Marshmallow counts

This way of counting is loved by kids with a sweet tooth. Cut out a big cup out of paper and throw a die, then put that number of marshmallows in the cup.

## Musical science

A great idea for those who are ready to stand a little cacophony in the name of arithmetic. Put a sticker with a number on each key and ask your kid to make a certain number using the right keys.

## Apple fractions

There’s no better teacher to study fractions with than apples! They’re easy to cut into halves and quarters so that the child can eat a piece as a reward for success.

## Everyone, snacks on the table!

This kind of math exercise will make any kid happy. Prepare some sheets of paper with different numbers of circles on them and count together with the help of candy. Which, by the way, can be replaced by anything your child loves — berries, fruit, or crunchy crackers.

## Merry pegs

Is mom going to dry the clothes on the line? No, today she’s brought those colorful pegs for another kind of activity. Draw different amounts of apples on popsicle sticks and write the corresponding numbers on the pegs. Your kid will have fun matching the fitting pegs and sticks.

## More, or less?

Who didn’t have trouble with the ’greater than’ and ’less than’ signs in math class? This cute crocodile will help your kid learn which is which.

## Let’s grow a garden!

If you have some spare pom-poms, use them to make your own little garden. You could also use different colored round pieces of sponge instead. In winter this is an especially great activity for kids, because you can decorate a Christmas tree!

## A little bonus: clock wisdom

An interactive clock like this will help your kids find themselves in time, and they can always check their knowledge by folding the paper flaps. When making the clock, make sure that the hour hand color corresponds with the color of the hour face, and the minute hand is the same color as the minute face.

## Dress the snowman

A game for long winter evenings. Change the hat and your kid will have to dress the snowman in different clothes. It’s pretty hard to prepare in advance, but then this game will work a treat for a long time.
