# A Creative Approach To Dealing With Math Expressions Homework

Children begin learning math expressions at a very early age and it seems like it is getting earlier and earlier as time goes on. Because we are beginning at a younger age, we have to get more creative in how we deal with homework. Here are some great ideas in dealing with math expressions homework:

- Flash cards – Children love flash cards and seem to learn easily with the flash cards. There are many different things you can do with them that will make learning fun.
- Concentration – Matching math facts using the old fashioned concentration game if one way to make learning fun
- Quality time with parents – You can turn this into fun time for you and your child by making these flash cards a nightly game spent with the two of you
- Internet games – These are becoming more and more popular and children are getting better and better at playing these games on the internet. The different software that is being created for children as young and 2 and 3 years old are making learning fun so that the children don’t even realize they are learning lifelong math facts while having fun
- Quality time with parents – Homework for math facts can be done with your child with other things besides flash cards. If both parents and children make this fun, children will learn that learning is fun. There isn’t much time at all once children get home from school and parents get home from work that this is a great opportunity to spend some quality time.
- Physical exercise and learning math facts – If teachers get creative, children can have real fun by playing physical games using math facts. For example, each child can have a number and they can have one child with the number 8 stand on one side and then you can see how fast others kids can add up to become 8 like the kids who have a 3 and a 5. Creative things like this make learning fun and they get physical exercise at the same time.

Here are just a few examples of some creative ways we can teach math expressions to our children. If we want our children to keep up with children from other cultures, we need to make sure they are learning the things they need to keep up with those other children.
