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.
After their set, the 7th grade took the stage. They played more difficult music, had fewer missed notes and longer stretches that they played in unison. You could hear the difference a lot more hours of hard work made. Next up was the 8th grade. After 3 years of playing together, they played more complex arrangements and sounded ready to move on to the high school level. The growth from 6th to 7th to 8th grade was an interesting process to observe. So, what does this have to do with business? When we started our personal property inventory service years ago, we missed a lot of beats. We (my husband and I) werent often in sync with each other and had to start over many times while creating our processes and procedures. The same when we created our turnkey business package (a business to help others start their own personal property inventory business). Do-overs were the norm for a while. But now, after practicing, working together, stretching ourselves into bigger and better, we play a pretty sweet tune.
But enough with the games, lets talk some serious stuff. If you want to learn math, do a project like decorating a room. Do the whole works from calculating the paint or wallpaper, to calculating the material and sewing the drapes, to ordering and positioning the furniture. Design a new cabinet layout for your kitchen, including calculating cabinet dimensions, appliance positioning and project costs. Try building something like a drop desk or a play ground swing set, or a go-cart. How about doing a baking or sewing/quilting project? Do all the preparations for a dinner party, including the planning, shopping, seating arrangement, cooking, etc. Try paper trading some stock and track them for a year. Start an eBay business. Wow! Wouldnt that be something, having your childs math project turn into a home-based business that pays for your childs college education? Its possible and its real life.
Day 3 I recap the process they have been through over the past couple of days. I set some boundaries and expectations for the conversation we are about to have. Respect Gets Respect is our mantra. What happens next is amazing. Giggly is long gone, replaced with a real desire to listen, learn and understand. A valuable conversation ensues. Every once in a while the kids need to be redirected and reminded about the boundaries. Good facilitation is the key... and I am great at that. And practicing new skills makes perfect... which is exactly what the kids are doing. Lots and lots of great questions. To be honest, the kids ask the kinds of questions that many adults strive to sort out in their own efforts to understand and appreciate gender differences. A significant amount of time was spent on the theme, "Why cant they be more like us?" The boys wanted the girls to be more like them. The girls wanted the boys to be more like them.
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.
If the qualifications check out, and your child is happy with their tutor, then it just comes down to how well theyre actually doing in the subject. If you arent really all that proficient in your own math, so as to test them yourself, then it may pay to schedule a meeting with the math teacher at school, and see if they have noticed any significant improvements in your childs grades. So, if you want to make sure that your child is going to have a better shot at getting the job that they want in the future, nows the time to take action. It isnt a hard task at all and in a short moment starting from now, you can employing your very own math tutor.
