Our flash cards were just launched. We believe the flash cards provide another tool to help students polish their math skills. We are starting with four subjects (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), each with three levels of difficulty (easy, medium and hard). You can customize the flash cards to set how many problems per set, and whether or not you want a timer running during the practice. At the end, you will get a score and you can review problem by problem how you have done. To check it out, give it a try: GoldStudent Math Flash Cards.

The school year is over for most of our families and summer is here. I don’t know what people’s plans are for the summer. My family is busy with plans for summer camps, schools, and a family vacation. As parents, we try to strike a balance between relaxation and fun, creative activities and being productive. We try to keep our children’s minds sharp, so we try to give them something academic over the summer, to try to ensure they don’t forget everything they learned over the past year. If you are thinking of giving your child some math during the summer, GoldStudent can be a good tool for you. You can think of a way to reward them for the worksheets they complete. It is amazing how well a reward can help.

The challenge with math is that it is a rather boring and dry subject for most people. However, math is also important, as we all need some level of math in our daily lives. How can we help our children master the basic math skills they need for the real world? If you have any good ideas, please share with us!

We have begun to add video tutorials to our site, in order to help students learn or re-learn what they may be missing in their math education.  Each video is just a few minutes in length, and covers one concept.  We use examples similar to those on the worksheets.  These include an audio explanation created by a professional instructor.

You can find these videos linked on some of the worksheets, as shown in the image below, or on our math video tutorials page!  We are adding more videos, so if you need one that covers a particular topic, let us know.

Practice makes perfect. We’ve all heard the term. Everyone is familiar with the idea that to succeed in sports, athletes need to practice, practice, and more practice in order to excel. In sports, training your body to perform certain actions, certain maneuvers, to achieve a certain control over a ball all these things require many hours of practice of different kinds. With enough practice, many people can become very good at whatever sport they choose good enough to play well and to enjoy and thrive in the sport of their choice.

But who has heard that math practice makes perfect? Math practice works exactly the same was as practice for sports: You need to train your brain to think a certain way, to perform certain mental maneuvers, to learn to control numbers and equations so that they do what you want. In math, just as in sports, repetition leads to perfection, or at least an ability to perform accurately and quickly. Math practice for kids is very important so that they can learn to master math skills.

There are several options to get math help for children who want to master math through practice. Some important concepts to keep in mind:

  • The importance of math worksheets: Math worksheets define what practice is all about. Students who continually work on a series of math practice worksheets on a particular topic have a much higher likelihood of not only mastering the math concept, but also of raising their confidence levels on their overall math ability.
  • Problem solving practice drills: Part of the math worksheet process, problem solving practice drills give students real-life math challenges to help them master the math topic at hand.
  • Word problems in math: Math word problems prove to be some of the toughest for kids. But practicing word math problems over time will result in children ability to transfer their math knowledge to everyday life situations.

Practicing problem solving in math is what GoldStudent was created to do. GoldStudent is designed around the idea that math practice makes perfect. We have developed millions of math problems covering a wide range of curriculum materials. But even better yet, for optimal practice each of the math problems are customized to each student’s needs based on their current skill level. Through problem solving practice, students can perform as many math practice worksheets in as many areas of math as they want. GoldStudent is math help at its infinite best helping students practice and stay motivated to ultimately succeed and achieve math pro status!

Children can need help in math whether they are at grade level, working above their grade, or if they are struggling to keep up.  But few children will speak up and simply say help me in math! Instead, children react in many ways to math at school. They could be bored, frightened, they might lack motivation, they may need more drilling, or they may need more opportunities to take tests to reduce their stress or fears.

Whatever their skill level, here are ten ways to decide if your child needs additional math help:

  1. Your child understands the math worksheets and material, but makes careless mistakes.
  2. Your child understands the math worksheets and material, but takes too long to complete problems, resulting in poor results or test scores.
  3. You would like your child to do more math homework, but are unable to find math worksheets and other materials at the right level and in sufficient quantity.
  4. You would like your child to do more math homework, but you do not have time (or the ability with more advanced work) to grade the extra work or provide test situations.
  5. Your child seems unmotivated and does poorly on math homework and tests.
  6. Your child seems to understand the math worksheets and material, but does poorly on homework or on tests.
  7. Your child panics in test situations.
  8. Your child is baffled by one math topic, although in general does well in math.
  9. You are unable to help your child with their math schoolwork, either because you do not have time, your schedule does not allow it, or you simply cannot follow the assignments.
  10. Your child is very advanced in math, and the teachers at school seem unable to meet his or her needs, resulting in boredom or poor performance.

If any of these ten situations sound familiar, there are math resources available to you to help.  One option is supplemental online, computer-based math instruction.  Online computer-based instruction in math can be a huge benefit for many children, whether they are accelerated past their age group or are having trouble.

Online computer-based instruction provides children with additional problem-solving opportunities, more experience and practice with sometimes stressful test situations, and most of all distinct focus on a particular subject.  These three benefits can greatly speed up and ensure better, more in-depth math learning coverage. Participating in supplemental computer-based instruction gives your child a better chance to excel in math at school.

Online computer-based instruction ensures children will develop better study habits, better self-esteem, and can lead to significantly improved grades and faster coverage of material.

GoldStudent is a successful online computer-based math assistance program that works for kids that need help in math. See how GoldStudent works.
