Boost Your Child's Mental Math Skills



Mental math may not be something your child is tested on, but this doesn't mean it's not an important skill. In fact, having sharp mental math skills can help your child have an easier time with their math work. To help them sharpen their mental math abilities, use these tips.

Memorize Math Facts

Instead of reaching for the calculator every time a simple math problem comes up, have your child memorize some simple math facts. Students can benefit from memorizing things like their multiplication tables and simple division. Being able to recall the answers to basic problems quickly can help them move through longer problems more efficiently.

Surprise Speed Drills

Speed drills are a great resource when it comes to helping students with the ability to think quickly and logically. Look for worksheets with simple multiplication problems that your child has to resolve in a minute. Surprise them with these speed drills every once in a while to keep them on their toes.

Play Math Games

Playing simple math games at home that get your child thinking fast can be fun and educational. For example, get some flashcards and write a number on each one. Have your child pick one without looking, and then give them a minute to come up with as many equations as they can think of that lead to their number. Have everyone in your family participate so that it's more fun.
