It’s not uncommon to hear kids and parents alike comment on how they hate math practice, and how they suffer from math anxiety. Leah tells us the story of how her four kids struggled to enjoy math, no matter how hard she tried. They would rather work on any other subject.
That’s exactly why she took the time to find a curriculum option that engages and entertains her kids:
“One thing I’ve tried to do is to choose math curricula and math practice materials that are fun. If the kids can say “math” and “fun” in the same sentence, perhaps the math hate will go away.”
On her blog, As we walk along the road, she tells her readers about her experience using Smartick Method, and how our math program has managed to change the whole math practice perspective at home. Math can actually be fun! The gamification elements and reward system within our learning method keep children engaged and coming back for more. Also, the daily practice sessions are short and sweet, just 15 minutes a day! The trick is that it helps children keep their concentration level at a maximum and avoids burnout.
“Having the incentive of a Virtual World makes the program more appealing. Many kids already enjoy playing games where they can build and customize a world. Smartick plays into this interest that kids already have by allowing them to use their ticks in their Virtual World.”
Best of all, all the games in Smartick are scientifically designed to reinforce cognitive skills, such as perception, attention, memory, and logical reasoning. Parents should know, however, that even though their kids are “playing” they are gaining skills that are important for their development.
