Many parents have a fixed belief in their own math abilities. They may feel uncomfortable with math themselves, let alone how to develop the skills in a young child. Teaching math theories to children can be facilitated by understanding how they learn and make sense of math. Current studies reveal preschoolers are capable of grasping how to count, add and subtract, if questions are asked in the right way.
Taken together, these two ideas — that math is important and that success in math is rare — are a perfect way to make kids anxious about math. And we know that once kids are feeling worried about something, learning it becomes harder.
“For kids who have better verbal abilities, just being able to talk out their strategy and give a good explanation of what they want to do and how they should solve it, and maybe getting corrective feedback along the way, can be really helpful,” says Dr. Pagirsky. Similarly, students can write out their strategy during homework or a test. In this approach students are walking themselves through how to think about the problem, at their own pace and in language they might feel more comfortable in. With this technique they might find that they understand more than they realize about how to solve the problem, and switching to a more verbal approach helps them think more clearly.
