Summer learning loss is a very real problem in which students forget the lessons taught in school prior to summer break. This means that they go into the new grade without barely any idea of the concepts and data learned.

This can be especially worrisome if your child is struggling with a subject, like math. This is why, in this post, The Tutoring Center in Foster City will share a few ideas of how you can get your child to study math over summer break!

How to Encourage Your Child to Study Math Over Summer Break


Review

Encourage your child to reread his/her math notes once in a while (and even a couple of weeks before going back), so s/he can refresh the lessons that were taught during school.

Hand Out Exercises

Ensure your child is practicing his/her math, by handing out exercise for him/her to complete (you can find appropriate ones online). You can even offer a reward if s/he does a good job!

Real Life Uses

A lot of times children hate math because they don’t see the point in it. However, you can teach your child to use it in real life by asking him/her to do some simple operations (like adding up the bill at a restaurant).

Calculator Off!

Calculators are very useful, but they prevent us from actually solving math problems. If you’re handing out an exercise or implementing a real life use, make sure your child solves it on his/her own!

Discuss

Another great way to get your child involved in learning math over the summer, is by simply talking to him/her about it. Ask him/her to explain an appropriate math equation or concept, to keep their knowledge fresh.

Get a Tutor

Summer tutoring can be a great practice to ward off summer learning loss! Not only that, but with a tutor, your child will be able to clear up any doubts that may have lingered on during the school year.
