The personal learning network for educators

There are two sides of math for kids, first math is fun for kids and second math is phobia. It's all depend on the math tutor how they introduce math. There are may reasons for math phobia, poor learning environments in traditional classrooms,work disorders and unintelligent math tutors etc. Math can be fun for kids if parents and math helper provide the best learning environment.


Math is a subject which kids can learn while playing or with the help of games. Parents and math helper can relate the math to real-life activities so that it would be a great help for kids to understand the basic concepts of math. Kids can get many fun-filled math games on online. With the help of these fun game, students can learn math basic very easily. 

We can not simply tell math is difficult for kids it all depends on the math tutor how they explain it to kids.  Math is the subject where kids can play with the numbers. Representation also matters for kids, color and shapes attract kids attention. Math tutor should explain math with a colorful environment.

Math is all around us, use the coins, the school timing, buy the candies all required the calculation. If kids want to learn cricket they can not learn it by reading the books or by watching a movie, kids have the practice it daily by following all the rules of cricket similarly students cannot learn math just by reading books they have to practice it almost daily.


Summary:
In simple words math is fun for kids, but it's all depends on math tutors or parents how they introduce math  to kids. Kids should get the best learning environment for math.

Children hate doing mathematics as they lack attention and they avoid practicing things. Slowly the fear of learning piles up so much that they start getting away from this subject and the fear keeps on growing too big. Make sure kids do a regular study and practice math concepts in order to make them learn and not to have fear feeling for such a wonderful subject.
