https://naturalmath.com/community/questions/3627/self-paced-program-for-gifted-first-grader-help.html
<p>My son is six and pretty advanced. He can probably do most of the third grade math curriculum. He can't borrow yet or carry well (those are the only two things). Standford EPGY is a good program it seems (affoardable) as is Dreambox. My son will be able to work at his own pace while his first grade class does whole group instruction. I'd like to see him advance at his own pace. What other self-guided programs are good out there. I am a math teacher and can remediate if I see he doesn't understand a particular concept. Can you help?</p>early mathmath curriculumThu, 08 May 2014 14:13:02 GMTtristatemathtutorIs 2.5 years too young for a math lesson?

<p>As I watch sports I'm applying more and more basic maths principles to figure out winning strategies. I play a lot of tennis and I've started using these strategies and haven't lost since. </p><p>It's basic things like where players are positioned on the court, how fast the ball will reach them, how fast they can run for it, how big the court target is. From this you can figure out where to hit the ball to make it an easy shot for you but a difficult return for your opponent. You can then also figure out the simple shots open to them using the same formula. You just need to cover these options to make their life more difficult. </p><p>Hopefully I've explained it clearly enough. You start with really basic principles like those I remember doing at school about two trains travel towards each other at certain speeds etc. Here we just figure out what the limits of ourselves and our opponent are and the limits of the court and you can come up with a lot of ways to make your life easy and your opponents hard. </p><p>I find it a fun and useful way to apply maths in real life to have more fun.</p>math gamesearly mathproblem solvingmath skillsapplied mathThu, 28 Mar 2013 05:47:13 GMTcolchambersWhich math concepts are easier for young children to understand?

Is there a research on which math concepts are easier for children to understand? Does the progression currently implemented in the standard preK-elementary school math curriculum reflect this research?early mathmath curriculummath researchThu, 14 Mar 2013 22:12:31 GMTyelenamHow to deal with "kindergarten math is boring"?
https://naturalmath.com/community/questions/160/how-to-deal-with-kindergarten-math-is-boring.html
What to do when you hear "math is boring" and "I hate math" from a young child (5-6 year old)? The kid goes to kindergarten. He does ok in math, but is not at all interested in it. Word problems in particular are his weakness. At the same time, he loves building with Lego , Tinkertoys or really any kind of blocks, building forts, marble runs, etc. How to translate his interests into kindergarten math requirements?early mathproblemskindergartenFri, 25 Jan 2013 21:00:06 GMTyelenamProblem remembering numbers
https://naturalmath.com/community/questions/153/problem-remembering-numbers.html
How can I help my child, who otherwise has remarkable memory, to remember numbers? For example, if a child confuses 6,8 and 9 or counts to 12 and then skips to 16? I'd like to avoid the rote memorization route since it's proven to be ineffective and thoroughly joyless for both of us.early mathcountinglearning numbersThu, 24 Jan 2013 21:43:17 GMTyelenamHow can I help my child develop problem solving skills?
