    Give your child's math appreciation and skills a boost with this Math In The Real World activity.

    Math is something you should do every day, regardless of whether you're 1, 21, or 100. Whether you're balancing your checkbook, measuring ingredients for a recipe...even forming a logical arguement to win a debate—all of these activities require and are made better by math! It's important for kids to appreciate at a young age how much they'll utilize their math skills in every day life. Just as parents foster an appreciation for reading with regular bedtime stories, they can foster an appreciation for math with real world practice and regular math games and activities!

    Before I came to Mathnasium, I could sum up everything I felt about math in one word: 'EVIL!' I hated math. ... Mathnasium has been my safe haven. They truly have shown me the light when it came to addressing my fear and provided me with the tools that I need to rebuild my prior knowledge so that I won't forget it. Math is no longer a subject I shy away from but it is a subject I can boldly accept and understand.
