Marilyn Burns, a well known math expert, has been addresses math anxiety since 1970 with her first book, "I Hate Mathematics" right through to her more current book, "Math; Facing an American Phobia" 1998. The latter book speaks to math anxiety as a growing phenomenon. And more recently "Math for the Anxious" by Rosanne Proga, copyrighted 2005 also is very clear about math anxiety and its causes. Of course, all this math anxiety is good; at least it is for the math textbook industry. Math anxiety sells math textbooks. Parents are concerned that their children learn math better than they did. Teachers are calling for a better way to teach math. This is great news for the math textbook companies. For you and me, this is bad news.
How, you may ask, does an assignment like this turn children into productive individuals? The answer is -- by teaching them to be responsible, dedicated, and organized. All this comes from completing a 6th grade science project. The intricacies involved in finding the best topic for a 6th grade science project can feel limitless, and overwhelming, but keep in mind that in keeping with the age group for a 6th grade science project, you will only have a limited amount of in depth coverage required. This makes it somewhat easier on you, the parent, to encourage your child(ren) as they reach each milestone on the way to completing their 6th grade science project.
However, even schools with limited access to computers and other sophisticated teaching devices can provide students with educational experiences through school science projects. Electronic kits and other learning tools often allow students of all ages to improve learning through involvement in various projects. Critical thinking skills may even be enhanced in the absence of sophisticated teaching aids, as different options must be considered when purchasing of additional materials is not an option. The originality of the projects is becoming one of the most important considerations for judges at science fairs, so planning and thinking skills must be utilized for maximum learning to occur.
Minding the poor-I can never recall a day mother was not helping someone in need. We had our meals with strangers and relatives in even worse condition than we were. She was always giving, if not food to the hungry, it was her handbag or clothes to those who wanted to venture beyond our village. Having a rare kind of hope-There is a hope that can only come where logical reasoning ends. In basic surveys that I conduct in my seminars, I have found that the most feared experience by parents is the death of their child. Mother lost three sons and two daughters. Yet she still has peace of mind and hope for a better tomorrow.
Now, imagine the same child having access to an online math learning environment. By paying a monthly subscription, sometimes as little as $20 a month, your child will immediately have access to a system where expert tutors will explain these math topics in an engaging and easy to understand way. If you child didnt fully understand the first time they watched an online tutorial, they can watch it over and over again. Many online learning environments have examples that tutors will go through and also give you some example to go through at your own pace, so that you can complement your childs learning. For many parents, having access to an online learning system to help their child with math is a lot more cost-effective than getting a personal math tutor.
Another way of getting help for 6th grade math, as well as going a little extra homework, is to find a tutor or get access to an online learning system. There are many of these places available now a days and you can often get free access for few days to test drive a program, to see whether their method of teaching is a good fit for the way that your child learns subjects and takes in information. Make sure you find a system that encompasses the level and breadth of subjects that your child is learning. A lot of math students find equations, probability and algebra difficult to grasp. With probability for example, students find it bewildering taking in the concepts of probability and chance, as well as statistical inference and analysis. Imagine a child not fully understanding this topic in the class setting and then being given 6th grade math probability homework sheets. They would be completely overwhelmed.
