Does Your Child Doubt the Importance of Math?

It can be difficult for a student to understand just how important math will be to their adult life. To help you teach the lesson, The Tutoring Center, Wichita has a great activity to share in the post below.

Classroom in the Kitchen

Instead of spending their afternoon and evening tapping at screens or playing video games, invite your children to help you in the kitchen and use the time as a teaching opportunity.
  • Locate a recipe written using the Metric system and ask your children to convert it.
  • Find a recipe which serves too many and have your children calculate new portions.
  • If using a packet item, have your children calculate how much will be left.
  • If you are measuring any items, have your children take over the task.
This can be a great activity for a number of reasons:
  1. A practical lesson is not only absorbed better by a student, but this practical lesson shows just how beneficial and relevant math is to a task which will form part of their own adult life.
  2. As basic as the lessons are, they are beneficial for all children to learn and use.
  3. Parents teaching their children provides an opportunity to identify potential learning challenges.
