The 4 temperaments were first discovered and used for medical and philosophical purposes some 2,500 years ago by Hippocrates and Plato, respectively. This concept resurfaced in the Middle Ages, and though the causal links between them and health and personality have not stood the test of time, more recent personality analysis via the 4 temperaments is effectively and widely used. They can be successfully applied to your homeschool math curriculum as well.
If your 4th, 5th, 6th, or 7th grade child is making poor grades in math, you may be able to help him or her. A little (20 minutes-two or three times a week) effort to find and correct deficiencies can pay off in a happier, more confident child and much less frustration in the household. Perhaps you lack the confidence to work with your child. Sometimes a brother, sister, grandparent or friend can serve as tutor. But if you do it yourself, you may surprised at your own math improvement as you proceed!
By the time they reach first grade, kids should be ready to move beyond simple math concepts such as number recognition and counting and begin learning to add and subtract numbers of varying values. Online math games for first graders introduce these concepts in a fun, adaptive environment that sets kids up for success as they progress through first grade and beyond.
Since math is the most likely of all your homeschool subjects to be taught and learned in an abstract way, you may very well see a corresponding lack of liveliness, interest, and enthusiasm for the subject. But you can make it more agreeable and inviting by infusing and enlivening it with a bit of character and personality. This enhancement, beyond being merely utilitarian, also touches on the true nature and deeper qualities of math.
Attributing temperament personalities to the 4 processes helps a great deal toward a greater understanding as well as proper, successful use. Colorful costumes, along with stories and plays, characterize and illustrate each one's unique traits and the way they all interact. This can also be a first look at how math intersects and interconnects on a deep and vital level, while giving it a dynamic and interesting face that will easily hold any student's attention and interest.
Thirdly, the syllabus / scheme of work also help you to know your limit on any particular topic. When I say limit I mean areas you're not supposed to touch under any particular topic. For example, a second year secondary/college student is not expected to go beyond the use of measuring instruments to find angles of elevation and depression. The calculation aspect of this will be done later. So a misinformed student would waste precious time looking for ways to calculate angles of elevation and depression instead of measuring them.
By incorporating virtual teaching tools and online math games, teachers can help to ensure that kids get a full grasp of each new concept as it comes. The individual attention that these games can offer takes classroom instruction to the next level, offering a better chance at success to a larger subset of students. With online games, 2nd grade math becomes fun and engaging for students regardless of skill level or learning style.
