    By Mathnasium | Added May 1, 2018

    Practice elementary school math skills such as multiplication with this math in the real world activity.

    Putting things into groups is a common first math activity for young kids. In fact, most children will begin doing this on their own: pairing crayons with like colors, grouping fruit snacks by flavor, or sorting treats into equal portions to share. Parents can use this natural tendency to sort to help kids begin to recognize and practice math in the real world.

    Click here to check out our Math In The Real World Activity on grouping and multiplication. We'll help you look for opportunities while doing activities around the house or running errands to work with your child to solve real world problems and practice their elementary math skills. Let us know in the comments other ways you and your family have used to practice multiplication in everyday life!

    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.
