Or: How to convince your kids that mastering arithmetic and their math facts are a vital key to their lives.
Some kids hate math, while others love it. But even though your children may dislike learning arithmetic, there are many reasons why they should master the subject, and it isn’t just so they can graduate from school. Here are the top 3 reasons why your kids must master arithmetic, and these are excellent reasons you can tell them as well the next time they complain about learning math.
This article discusses some fun ways to show your child (or anyone else) that dividing by zero does not work.
The four basic operations of arithmetic – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are all quite intuitive to learn. The hardest one to comprehend for a child is definitely division. The question that really gets a lot of children perplexed is the question of why division by zero does not work.
After all, you can add zero, subtract zero and multiply by zero – so why can’t you divide by it? And how do you explain something that is undefined?
There are many math practice games available online, but I’d argue that what you really want is an intelligent math facts game.
The reasons are simple. First, you want to practice what needs to be practiced, and not what’s already mastered or what’s too hard. And second, you want to know when you’re done.
