Math Summer Review for 2nd Grade School ended Friday, June 15th and my elementary school has helpfully supplied me with summer math homework for my son who will be entering 2nd grade. We get one problem per day and as my other kids went through this, we found that it’s easier to do one week…
Make math fun for kids by finding spirals in nature. Then introduce the Fibonacci number sequence; the math behind spirals. Even I can do it!
Yes, I believe in summer math. I have the best math workbooks for math supplementation plus math apps, math picture books and fun math games.
Math apps for girls in 2nd and 3rd grade. My mom friend Liz reviews math facts apps and math logic games with her two daughters.
My daughter said that her class came up with a list of strategies to learn multiplication. In fact, her friend Helena came up with the x8 trick. Learning math facts seems to work best when it gets presented different ways; this is the logical reasoning method. The post I refer to throughout on Tips and Tricks uses songs; another great way to go. We do flashcards and mnemonics; do you have any good ones for facts? The only one I know is 8 x 8: I ate and I ate ’til I threw up on the floor, so 8 times 8 is 64! It works so well that my youngest knew 8 x 8 at age 3 but just that one one because he finds gross humor particularly funny. If you have any other tricks or tips, please share!
