The best way to help your child study for math test is to work through examples together. Check out the PowerPoint presentation I use in class. Work through the problems together. If you notice mistakes, point them out and help your child correct them. Most importantly, talk to your child about taking his or her time on every test, working out problems, and going back and checking.
How do I help my child with the basic math facts?
First of all, make sure your child does their Whiz Quiz homework every night. They must practice. Next, check out the math facts games on the game page. Then use playing cards to practice facts, call out facts in the car, and even post them around the house. Finally, check out the best flash cards you can get. These triangle shaped cards focus not just on adding or subtracting, multiplying or dividing but on fact families. Understanding fact families can lead to the mastery of basic facts.
