Stay away from Baby Einstein and My Baby Can Read. Both of these programs require time in front of the TV when the child is still very young. Brain research is showing us that this is not good for our children. In addition, the time spent on those would be better spent on establishing a successful math foundation. School children enter school with sufficient language skills and reading readiness. We do not need to spend more time in those areas. That time needs to be spent on understanding numbers.
Maths is used daily and all the time. You can note you are always counting or measuring the objects you come in contact with and this is why maths is one of the first subjects introduced to a small child. Maths can be made perfect with basic arithmetic or algebra worksheets. Gear up; we are going to help your child gain immense confidence in solving maths sums.
Prime numbers found little practical value until about the 1970's when public key cryptography was discovered. This procedure allows information to be coded so that only the person who knows the secret key can decipher the message. This protocol allows private information to be sent over the internet securely without the fear of such being intercepted and read by somebody for whom the information is not intended. This methodology allows us to conduct secure banking and financial transactions over the internet today.
Back to number symbols. Here, we are literally talking about the symbols we use to write numbers: 1, 2, 5, 9, 12, 17, etc. No written words yet. With a young child start with just recognizing the symbols by pointing at them with you reinforcing the word. Show your child what a "1" looks like (they may already know this from reading books with you) and then ask them to find another 1 somewhere in the house. You will probably need to model for your child what you mean a couple of times. Point to the 1 on a remote control and/or a clock.
To start understanding the meaning of numbers, physically act out what you mean by the instruction "show me two blocks." Showing your child what you want is called "modeling" and is an important skill and learning tool. Children are just learning language so do not yet depend on it. Show your child what the words mean. This helps their language skills and avoids number errors. Start having your child show you numbers of identical items. These might be items from their toy chest, items from the kitchen, items in coloring books, items from their dresser, etc.
Maths worksheets are great fun to work with and have been created by skilled teachers who have utilised all the maths resources available to them for the best learning experience. Maths worksheets should challenge students and at the same time should not be a scary subject to attempt. Worksheets are a recommended mathematic learning source and an amalgam of the total syllabi. They are the top priority in the education system and are used as a learning tool by many parents, schools, teachers and students.
