Mathematics. 

What’s your child’s first reaction when he/she hears this word? Does his/her eye gleam brightly with enthusiasm? Or does he/she heave out a loud, fearful sigh? 

Mathematics, or Maths for short, is one subject that school students either love or hate. 

If your kid loves the subject, getting him/her to finish up his/her homework will be a piece of cake!  

However, if he/she falls under the other end of the spectrum, getting him/her to love Maths will require you to have the patience of a Saint! If you don’t have one, it’s understandable too! 

Yet, don’t just go ahead to chastise your kid for either not completing the homework or repeatedly failing the Maths common test! Please understand that there’s nothing wrong with your kid! He/she may have a different set of talents. You can try getting your kid to attempt one of those hidden talent or strengths quizzes, and for all you know, his/her strength isn’t in numbers or logic. He/she may be a creative type or a more physically-inclined student.

However, while it’s important to honour and nurture your child’s talent, it’s also essential for your child to develop a deep understanding of Maths. 

Why Is Maths Such an Important Subject?

Mathematics, alongside English and Mother Tongue, are subjects that are essential to your kid’s survival, not just in his/her academic progression, but also in the real world. Here are some other reasons why your kid needs to pay attention to Maths. 

It’s a Must-Pass Subject to Qualify for Courses in the Polytechnic and Junior College

Here’s the deal. All polytechnic courses, except for Nursing, require your child to score at least a grade of C6. It doesn’t matter whether his/her overall O Level t-score is fantastic. It doesn’t matter whether he/she aced the rest of the subjects. As long as he/she fails Maths, it’s a no-deal.

On the flip side, if your child gets a D7 for English, he/she’s still able to qualify for the Engineering and IT courses in the polytechnic, as long as he/she passes Maths and meets the required cut-off point. 

Take this from me. I had an ex-classmate who flunked Maths, but excelled in English and Art, ended up taking a private diploma instead. 

If your child plans to enter junior college, passing Maths is also non-negotiable. 

It’s a Stepping Stone to Better Understand Other Subjects 

If your kid is facing issues in Maths, chances are he/she is also facing issues in subjects like Physics and Chemistry. Physics involves the understanding of lots of formulas, geometry and graph analysis. Maths is also crucial in Chemistry, where your child needs how to balance a chemical equation, which is the foundation of the subject. There are also lots of mathematical formulas you have to know to calculate things like the energy in reactions and the molecular mass of a chemical compound. 

As your child progresses to post-secondary and tertiary education, more advanced knowledge of Maths may be required. This is to prepare them for their lives beyond graduation, which brings me to my next point. 

Maths is the Key to Lucrative Careers in the 21st Century 

According to an article from Brookings Institute, understanding Maths is crucial in the 21st-Century digital workplace. Aside from the popular STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field, the arts industry surprisingly requires Maths too. 

As someone who studied Digital Film years ago, the knowledge of Geometry is essential for camera framing and lighting purposes. Some video compositing software also requires geometrical calculations. 

In the world of business, the knowledge of statistics is crucial for market research, making reliable business decisions, as well as forecasting future outcomes.

How to Get Your Child to Enjoy Learning Maths

Maths can be a challenging subject for students who have no natural inclination or passion for numbers and shapes. 

However, there are ways to build up their aptitude and appetite for it.  

Work with Their Mindsets 

“You have to love the subject you teach and you have to love the kids and make them see that they have a chance, opportunity in this country to become whatever they want to,”

– Jaime Escalante, American Maths teacher who was immortalised in the Award-nominated movie, Stand and Deliver.

Working with a youth’s mindset is not unlike sales. To “convert” someone to buy into what you offer, you have to scale your offer down to match your child’s needs. 

There’s no one-size-fits-all rule here. It really depends on how old your kids are. If they are in primary school level, include the element of fun in it. Get them to do some interesting Maths puzzles or involve them in artwork using shapes. This will help reduce their mental and emotional barrier towards Maths.

For upper secondary teenagers, it’s all about appreciation for the subject. In a scene from the movie, Stand and Deliver, teacher Jaime Escalante brought his wayward teenage students to visit a computer manufacturing plant. While it seems like the purpose was for them to understand the importance of Maths in the real world, the visit was to give them hope for a better future.

Likewise, for your own kids, you can get them interested in Maths by talking about how it can lead to great opportunities in future. I’ve already covered how junior colleges and polytechnics require at least a C6 Maths score to get accepted. The O Levels is a transitional stage for many youths. A significant portion of teenagers today want to pursue their passion. You have to stress the significances of how passing Maths is an essential entry stamp into pursuing their interests in a post-secondary environment. 

Breakdown EVERYTHING into Small Steps 

If Maths is already appearing overwhelming for your kid, don’t even expect them to grasp the first chapter within an hour. 

Instead, help them understand the fundamentals of the formula on a step-by-step basis. Harness the power of graphs and other visualisation tools to better understand the topic. 

Besides breaking down concepts into bite-sized information, you should also breakdown the study time into short interchanging intervals between study and rest. Telling them to sit for 2 hours will be a nightmare for them. Incentivise their efforts to study with a short break after 30-40 minutes. During the break, they should leave their study area and not engage in something mentally stimulating, like playing online games. Instead, going for a short walk, playing with their pets or anything that doesn’t require cognitive strength.  

Find a Good Tutor 

If your child is still struggling with Maths after various attempts to coach him/her, it’s time to find someone else who could do that for you

When finding a tutor, find out about his/her past students. How much has their Maths results improved since they started tuition? 

Do also consider the distance away from your home, as travelling could take up unnecessary time and energy for you and your child. You can also get the tutor to travel to your home. However, that may be costlier. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic, many tuition agencies have also started offering online tuition, which could be a more economical option for you. 

Here is a list of tuition agencies around Singapore for you to consider.
