Math help in Missouri City, TX

04/11/2018


While using a calculator can save you time and mistakes, giving one to a young child who's just learning math may not be ideal. To read tips on how to teach your child to use the calculator in a way that won't hinder their learning process, refer to the post below.

How to Teach Your Child to Use a Calculator

Learn Basic Math

Your child should master additions, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, and other basic math knowledge before you give them a calculator they can use.

Employ Other Tools

The calculator isn't the only calculation tool available. If your child needs help, employ other tools for that purpose (for example, an abacus, or a simple pencil and a piece of paper).

Talk to Them

The truth is that your child should be responsible with how they use the calculator. That's why you should talk to them and let them know that they won't always be able to use one (e.g. on tests), which is why they need to learn math correctly.

Provide a Standard Calculator

As you know, there's more than one type of calculator out there. Unless your child is a math genius, a standard calculator should do for now. Just be sure to teach them how its buttons work.

Use It for Verification

Last but not least, it's important that you set a few limits regarding your child's calculator usage. Mainly, they should use it only when they want to verify a result that they've already worked on manually.
