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.
After introducing the numbers, the next step is to bring them together so they can interrelate. Teaching all 4 processes at once using simple and straightforward equations promotes greater student understanding. Seeing the big picture in this way is reassuring, because there won't be any daunting, hidden surprises with multiplication and division if addition and subtraction are taught first. Personalize the 4 processes by applying and relating the 4 temperaments to them.
Math will become more fun as each success is achieved. Also remember, when tutoring, vary the lesson topics so your child will not lose interest. Limit tutoring sessions to no more than 30 minutes. Guides are available especially for home tutoring that can diagnose the needs as well as fix any deficiencies in an easy, fun manner.
