Certificate issued by Hils Learning

Your child struggles with math and the understanding of seemingly basic math concepts. You can’t seem to understand what’s causing them to stumble. This course provides practical training for teaching math to children by: Enabling you to build a resource of techniques to teach math because the methods that you are familiar with may not be the way your child can learn

Easing the pressure on the child by making math enjoyable and understandable.

Sample games:

Add On (addition)
Objectives of game

  • Collect as many cards as possible
  • Addition practice

How to play

  1. Assign numerical values to non number cards such as the jack, queen, king, and ace. Our suggestion:
    1. Jack = 11
    2. Queen = 12
    3. King = 13
    4. Ace = 1
  2. Deal out all cards equally to players
  3. All players flip over 1 card from their pile simultaneously each round
  4. The first player to call out the correct total keeps the cards
  5. The game ends once all cards have been flipped over
  6. Count the total number of cards each player has collected – the player with the most cards wins

 

Aim for the Stars (fractions)
Objectives

  • To collect as many cards as possible by making the largest fraction each turn
  • Practise comparing fractions

How to play

  1. Assign values to all non number cards such as the jack, queen, king, and ace. Our suggestion:
    1. Jack = 11
    2. Queen = 12
    3. King = 13
    4. Ace = 1
  2. Deal out 2 cards to each player – one card opened and the other one closed
  3. Players take a look at their cards and try to make the largest fraction possible with their cards
  4. Players may choose to take a chance at making a larger fraction by taking turns to exchange one card in their hands with a card in the pile – this may be done only once
  5. Once all players who want to exchange their cards have had their turn at exchanging one card, all players open all cards
  6. Using their cards, players make the largest fraction – proper or improper.
  7. Players compare their cards to see who has the largest fraction
  8. The person with the largest fraction wins the round and collects all cards in that round
  9. This process is repeated until the deck of cards has run out
  10. Players count the number of cards in hand – the player with the most cards wins the game
