As homeschoolers we tend to teach the way we were taught or at the very least we are influenced by how we experienced school ourselves. In this episode, Jan Bedell, the Little Giant Steps Brain Coach, challenges the standard way of doing a few problems to teach a “math lesson” and then sending the student off to “do it on their own”. Then we grade the papers the child finished and then what? Do we do more instruction? Typically not, we just send the paper back with the child and tell them to correct it. No wonder so many children HATE math. The myth: If we help the student or do some of the student’s problems for them, it makes us somehow guilty of cheating. That myth is debunked in this episode.
Also, what about those magic cards we hold up when “working” on math facts? In this podcast, the lunacy of that frustrating exercise is uncovered and an effective approach to learning math facts quickly and painlessly is introduced. Just how much faster would math assignments go if math facts were instantly recalled? How much time is wasted correcting problems where there was a math fact error? How much better would the child’s attitude be if math assignments were more quickly done so there was time to spend on other interest areas? What about dysgraphia? Yes, with the techniques and resources introduced here, those symptoms are reduced or go away. Find how to make math easier in this 25 minute podcast.
