Improving Our Math Skills, 15 Minutes at a Time
Tiffany from the blog Stuff Parents Need suffered from math anxiety as a child and was determined to make her children’s experience with the subject much more pleasurable.
“The last thing I want is for my kids to have an unhealthy relationship with math.”
“One of the areas I have been the most nervous about teaching my kids is math. I started to really loathe math as early as 3rd grade when I didn’t quickly understand the concept of long division (I actually have a memory of running to the bathroom and crying over it!). The last thing I want is for my kids to have an unhealthy relationship with math. I want the complete opposite for them, in fact. But can I help them achieve that as their teacher? I knew at the very least, I was going to need some help.”
That’s how she came across Smartick Method. She was looking for an online program that was able to adapt the level and pace of the questions to her children, instead of just giving them arbitrary questions and would not necessarily match their needs. “The program seems to be quite smart and is doing a great job at keeping both of my girls appropriately challenged. I am seeing their confidence grow with every session, and it is really helping us develop positive relationships with math.”
As a parent, she’s able to monitor the performance of her daughters from the parent’s dashboard. Tiffany also enjoys the email notifications with a summary of the daily session. “It’s helpful to me to get a sense for the areas where mastery is being built, as well as areas that are new and still quite challenging to my girls.”
