We’re sure that math is probably one of the last things your child wants to think about when they’re on winter break. However, practicing and reinforcing their mathematical thinking from time to time during the holidays can help them master the subject (especially if they’re finding it challenging). 

In this post, The Tutoring Center in Herndon will give you a few easy ideas on how your child can practice math that you can put to good use this holiday season.

How to Study Math Over the Break 

Go Through Their Notes

If you don’t want your child to forget everything they learned by the time school starts back up again, encourage them to review their notes. This way, they’ll be able to go over the concepts and refresh their memory.

Use It in Daily Life

Math is needed in almost every aspect of daily life, despite what some students may think. You can use this to your advantage and show your child the practical uses of math, for example by asking them to add up the bill at the grocery store.

Talk About It

Oftentimes just discussing a subject, asking questions about it, or explaining it can help you gain perspective or a better understanding about it. Ask your child to explain math concepts they should know so they can reinforce their knowledge about them.

Play with Math Apps

Nowadays, there’s an app for almost everything, and math is no exception. Moreover, there are a lot of games that help your child practice math while they have fun. Look for ones that can help your child get involved with math over the break!

Practice

Likewise, you can find a lot of practice problems and worksheets online that will help your child use their math knowledge. If you feel they’re reluctant to complete them, offer a reward if they do them correctly.
