    Fun and inspiring math in the real world activity helps kids practice elementary math subtraction skills!

    Parents, you know how important it is to read with your kids every day, but did you know that it's just as important to "math" with your kids every day? Just like with physical exercise, daily math practice, especially in elementary school, will build strong math "muscles" that will help kids grasp more challenging subject matter later. 

    One of the foundational math skills parents will want to practice early and often with their kids is subtraction. The more opportunities parents can find for their elementary age kids to sharpen essential real world math skills the better. When kids use math it becomes second nature!

    We have some great ideas to help parents "math" with their kids every day. Click here to check out our Math In The Real World: Subtraction Activity, and share it with your kids, your friends, and your kids' friends so you can practice together! Let us know in the comments how you and your family use subtraction every day.

    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.
