ALOHA USA presents 3 Ways to Prevent Your Child From Dreading Math Homework

Share Article

With kids now back to school and in full swing of having regular homework assigned each week, many students are surely dreading that one subject which often seems to stump countless of children (and their parents!) each and every year: math!

The program’s 2-hour, once a week classes, which focus on whole brain development, have a positive effect on a child’s confidence level and result in improved academic performance in school.

Ask most any school-aged child about what their worst subject might be and, more often than not, those not gifted in the arenas of math or science will agree math is the one of their most challenging classes. Be it memorizing times tables, formulas, equations or other arithmetic rules, it is no surprise that math subjects do present a challenge for a large population of students.

ALOHA Learning Centers – presently 4,200+ locations strong in countries such as India, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, China, Australia, New Zealand, Oman, UAE and USA -- have mastered specific training methods to help children between the ages of 5-12 avoid the fear and confusion that math and arithmetic subjects can often cause.

To foster more confidence and improve math skills in children, ALOHA recommends the following three tips for parents to consider as they seek to assist their kids with further developing math competencies:

1. Show enthusiasm!

A child will usually develop positive feelings towards a subject only when he or she is shown that a given topic can be just as fun as it is educational. Parents should adopt an upbeat attitude towards math-related subjects and encourage children to become more comfortable with numbers, equations and arithmetic.

2. Demonstrate multiple methods for problem solving

When children learn a variety of different methods towards approaching a specific arithmetic problem, it prevents them from feeling stuck or uncertain. Another benefit: if one method is challenging or overly daunting, a child who possesses familiarity with other methods for tackling the math problem at hand will experience a boost in confidence.

3. Seek additional support from qualified learning centers

When outside support is necessary in the arena of math, parents should seek a center where children are shown different methods and ways to learn and appreciate mathematics and numbers. Once the child enjoys the classes, he or she overcomes their fear for the subject and embrace learning the material to the fullest.

Founded by Mr. Loh Mun Sung in 1993, ALOHA learning centers are ideal locations where children can receive additional math support from trained professionals via the ALOHA Mental Arithmetic Program –- an after school program designed and structured by a panel of experts in the field of mathematics. The program’s 2-hour, once a week classes, which focus on whole brain development, have a positive effect on a child’s confidence level and result in improved academic performance in school.
