Here’s Why Math is Making Your Child Cry and What You Can Do About It

  2. Can they explain how they got that answer and how to apply it in real-world examples?

How to Start Practicing This in Real Life

  1. The first thing you have to do is accept the reality of how your child is performing in math class, and say it out loud. “My child isn’t understanding the deeper meaning behind the math they’re learning in school.”
  2. Next, find a learning tool or an expert in this field like Elephant Learning that can help teach your child a deeper understanding of the concepts, instead of just getting the questions right.
