According to University of Virginia, here are a few things to be aware of when learning mathematics with children:
- Ask, then listen. Ask the student what they notice about their surroundings that can get the conversation about math started.
- Let them show what they know. Allow them to demonstrate their problem-solving skills and explain their ideas.
- Be open to new ideas. Your child’s thought process may be different from your own so it’s important to understand how their thinking led to their answer.
- Be patient. Give them time and space to understand mathematics.
- Learn something new. Learn new approaches to mathematics to broaden your problem solving and critical thinking.
