Do your children struggle learning and understanding new math concepts? This list of teaching helps and ideas for tricky and new math concepts that your students may struggle with can be very helpful to getting past math hurdles.
I have two children that really struggle with math. It seems like every time a new concept is introduced there is so much fear and intimidation! I also find it difficult to have them learn the new concept when they have already geared themselves up to be confused and nervous about it. Thankfully we homeschool and can take a break from the curriculum or textbook when things get tough. There are lots of fun printables and different helps and hands-on ideas that can help our children to learn and understand concepts in a non threatening way!
I have compiled a HUGE list of teaching helps and ideas for tricky and new math concepts that your students may struggle with. There are so many that I have broken them down by concept with free printables and hands-on activities to help reinforce what they are learning.
