Teaching Your Child How Relevant Math Is

Not only is math part of every adult’s daily life, but it can also help to improve it. Every parent knows this, however, struggles to convey the message to their children who are adamant that their lessons will never be used once they leave school. If this sounds familiar, The Tutoring Center, Johns Creek has a great post which can help.

Teaching with Utility

You likely don’t realize it, but each time that you open a utility bill and read and review it, you are not only utilizing a solid level of math, but the activity is a great teaching platform for your children. Make some time to sit with your children to enjoy a snack and look over your utility and other bills:
  • Identify any times of the time when usage is at its highest.
  • Locate when prices change throughout the day.
  • Calculate any benefits to moving to a new provider, using their rate sheet and your existing bills.
  • Consider the financial benefits of moving usage to another period of the day.
  • Using the information from current and previous bills, calculate an estimate of the next billing period.
This is a terrific activity for a number of reasons:
  1. While the math you use may seem basic, it is very powerful and will be used in your child’s classroom and their adult life.
  2. Being a practical lesson, your children can see the relevance and benefit of learning math and applying it to their adult life.
  3. Supervising the activity means that parents can identify any potential learning challenges.
