It turns out that architects do use math regularly, but they dont use very complicated or advanced math in their day-to-day careers. Architects need to be fully fluent in ratios and proportions, comfortable with basic geometry, and have strong spatial skills. They dont routinely use complicated algebra, trigonometry, or calculus. True, those branches of math are used to build major buildings and bridges- but it is the engineers, not the architects who generally do the number crunching. Similarly, I know a pediatric nurse practitioner who considers her career a calling and is, by any measure, good at her job. Shes not afraid of math, but she doesnt exactly like it either. Early in her training she assumed that shed be using quite a bit of math in her job because people had always told her that math was important for medical professionals. Now, she does use math- and its incredibly important that she get the math right every time- but the math itself is very simple and repetitive. In essence, she uses proportions to calculate medicine dosage, and thats about it.
Every parent wants to get the best for our kids, and if that means getting a math tutor to improve their below averaged grades, then so be it. Then, in what ways you can choose a good 4th-6th grade math tutor? You may already know that it is hard to find a job nowadays and just imagine what the world will be like after your kid grows up and reached the age where they need to work and look after themselves? Im sure you can; that child of yours is going to have to have a degree, minimum, to even be competitive with the other candidates; so doesnt it make sense to strengthen up those weak subjects as early as possible in their academic career? To start with, when looking for a 6th grade math tutor, you have to work out whether your child responds best to a male or a female teacher; it could make all the difference when it comes to them actually paying attention, and learning what they need to. How do you know which they respond to best?
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.
Knowing that the 6th grade math curriculum is based on essential math concepts such as arithmetic and data analysis, measurement, geometry, probability amongst other things, having access to math worksheets which are also accompanied by other interactive activities like learning games, assessments and reinforcement can make learning 6th grade math a lot more fun than learning by rote. Instead of learning a topic and then doing lots of mathematical examples, based on what you have just learned, teachers have found that the use of interactive activities, learning games, printable worksheets, assessments, and reinforcement. the math curriculum should rely on many learning tools - lessons with activities, worksheets, reinforcement exercises, and assessments will help a student to learn each math topic in a variety of ways and this should help supplement the teaching in class.
We play a rendition of childhood game, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, where I ask the kids to tape index cards containing the changes that happen during puberty on the appropriate gender symbol. Yes, more giggly! We then move on to basic anatomy and physiology, including an overview of the brain, glands, the pituitary gland, hormones, testosterone and estrogen, followed a discussion of the sperm, the egg, menstrual periods, wet dreams and ejaculation. The giggly is over, replaced with an occasional exclamation "Ewwwww, thats gross!" These outbursts are consistently normalized by reinforcement that the body is an amazingly intelligent and complex machine; that the miracle of life is indeed a miracle; and that each child in the room is, in fact, a miracle. We take some time for questions and then move on to an introduction to the emotional changes that happen during puberty as a set up for our next class.
Every year students and parents alike become involved in school science projects. From the simplest projects with only the most basic materials to highly complex experiments, all projects should be considered important to the education of the students. Generally speaking, students at the second grade level are not expected to produce projects with the sophistication that might be expected at the 6th grade or 7th grade, but all project content should be original in nature. While many parents are able to provide their students with costly materials to construct their projects, other parents do not have that capability. That may seem unfair, but it should also be noted that many projects can be constructed with low cost or even free materials. Some school districts have the capability to provide students with materials for their school science projects. If that option is not available, local businesses may be encouraged to participate by providing money or materials. The central idea should be that no student be denied the option of being involved because of financial concerns.
