Some children don’t enjoy practicing math, but they have to either way. You can help your child become better at math without actually crunching numbers. Here’s what you can do.

 

Make Your Child's Brain Stronger for Better Mental Math Skills

To be good at math you need to practice regularly and memorize facts such as the multiplication tables. For many children, math practice is not their idea of fun. Mental math is a bit different. Since you’re not allowed to use a calculator or pencil and paper, your brain does all the work. What can you do to help your child have better mental math skills? Strengthen their mind with these tips.
  1. Superfoods: Certain foods can boost your child’s mental abilities. Superfoods such as avocados, berries, leafy greens, and nuts can increase problem-solving skills. Also, research shows that giving your child some dark chocolate to snack on can help them do calculations quicker and with more precision.
  2. A new hobby: Help your child try something new, even if it’s just reading a new book or trying new foods. New and different experiences refresh the brain and improve its agility, which makes math easier.
  3. Puzzles: Jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, and Sudoku all give your child’s brain a mental workout. They need to have a sharp brain to be able to solve mental equations.
  4. Get moving: Exercise is great for your child’s brain and body. Physical activity strengthens the brain and makes it faster because it helps stimulate the growth of brain cells.
