How often have you sat faced with a list of figures - balancing the check book, credit card statement or filling out tax forms - and muttered about how much you hate math, how hard it is, how you just do not have a head for math? You need to stop yourself right now! What you are telling your child is that math is a horrid chore, a difficult task, and one that you either have the talent to do, or you do not. You are making your child anxious about a school subject that they will have to do for many years - and a skill that they will need for the rest of their lives. You are also telling them that if they struggle with math, it just means that they do not have the talent for it - and it is therefore not their fault, and there is nothing they can do about it.
The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught concepts and are not taught skills--unless they are lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better. Most particularly, children are not taught mastery of arithmetic with fractions. Unfortunately, virtually all of their future math education depends on being able to do fractional arithmetic. Most of even beginning algebra depends on being able to do two things-one, doing multiplication quickly and accurately in your head, two, knowing how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.
Why do not you give it a try? Imagine left side wall of your room to be y axis and the wall at your back to be the x axis. The corner that connects them both will be your origin. Measure both in feet. If I say stand on coordinates (3, 2), would you know where to go? That means from the corner (origin) you should move 3 feet to the right and 2 feet forward. Graphing Linear Equations. If you have several sets of x and y coordinates, you can now draw lines on a graph. Free math worksheets can drill you on plotting x and y coordinates while graphing linear equation. A linear equation when drawn on a line graph always yields a straight line. Take "y = 2x + 1" for example - a linear equation. Assign any three numbers to x, and then solve for y. Whatever numbers you assign to x and whatever y comes out to be, you will end up with a straight line. Remember to practice on easier math worksheets first before moving on to writing a linear equation or to the systems of linear equations. Good luck!
