For many middle-school children, math is a real challenge. It is at this age that the concepts begin to get more abstract, and work goes beyond \"concrete\" ideas like adding and subtracting. Its no surprise that at this age, math can become something the student avoids, or begins to dislike. Parents, too, can start to see math as the enemy. Teachers may even tell parents that their child \"struggles with concepts,\" a nice way of saying \"your kid doesnt get it.\" But is this the case? Does a middle-school child struggling with math simply not understand the concepts? Often the answer to this question is a resounding \"no!\"
Ditch the boring math paper worksheets - Both parents and the kids dislike the math paper worksheets that make the subject tedious and boring. More and more parents across the country are ditching the paper worksheet in favor of apps and online programs that offer fun math worksheets.
Math worksheets are often assigned as an independent activity, however research indicates that communication and discourse are needed to build a deep understanding of math topics. Students need opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in different ways and to build their own connections. This involves communicating their ideas, listening to the ideas of others, arguing a viewpoint, describing, and explaining. Math worksheets are rarely used as a catalyst for conversation. Instead of assigning worksheets, find activities that encourage discourse, such as \"number talks,\" or collaborative group work. During the session, be sure to require students to explain their thinking and listen to the strategies and thinking of their peers.
