10 easy ways to help your kid understand math

Fractions and clocks for the strong of heart


This one is for kids who have already learned fractions and hours, but still have trouble with the latter. It’s easy to explain fractions with the help of a clock, and all the quarters to and halves past will settle down better this way.



This is another great way to introduce numbers. Make big digits with duct tape on the floor and let the corridor become the arena for your little leaper. For advanced learners, make the task a bit more difficult by giving them math problems, where the solution is not a word but a certain number of jumps. Fun is guaranteed!

A little bonus: clock wisdom


An interactive clock like this will help your kids find themselves in time, and they can always check their knowledge by folding the paper flaps. When making the clock, make sure that the hour hand color corresponds with the color of the hour face, and the minute hand is the same color as the minute face.
