Showing the Importance of Math to Your Children

Despite what your student may think, they will use math during their everyday life and, in fact, math can be used to help save money and improve their lifestyle. If you are a parent struggling to convince your child about the power of math, The Tutoring Center, Cypress TX has a great post with an activity to help.

Teach with Your Shopping Budget

It’s important for all families to spend every dollar wisely and reduce spending, and one of the best places to do this is the shopping list and associated budget. When you are ready to prepare your next budget and shopping list, invite your children to join you, and:
  • Share your techniques for calculating the savings on bulk items.
  • Show how you ensure sale items are beneficial or a waste of money.
  • Teach how you can easily start form the total figure and deduct from this.
  • If you already have a portion of the ingredients, ask your children to calculate how much more you need, and how to best save on the item.
When this is completed, take your children to the store with you and put them in charge of managing the budget and the list, marking each item off as you put it in your cart. Not only is this activity a great way to help your children sharpen basic math skills, but the practical nature of the lesson helps them to see just how relevant math skills are, and more so, how improved math skills can result in savings for their family and themselves.
