Does Your Child Doubt They Will Use Math as an Adult?

Every parent knows that math is used every day of their life. However, the challenge seems to be convincing children of the fact. If this rings true to you, below is a great activity from The Tutoring Center, Humble which can help.

Teach with Your Bills

As much as you may take it for granted, reading and understanding your range of bills involves a good amount of math and can be used as a great teaching platform. With your children, sit down to enjoy a snack and look through your bills:
  • Calculate the price differences for usage at different time periods throughout the day.
  • Identify any benefits of moving usage to another time period.
  • Consider the benefits of changing to a new provider, using the information on your bills and a new provider’s rate information.
  • Using the information from previous bills, forecast the next one.
This is a great activity for a range of reasons:
  • Being practical, your children can see just how relevant math is to adult life, helping to reinforce the lesson.
  • The calculations required for this activity are basic, yet very powerful.
  • Because parents are involved, it provides the opportunity to identify any learning challenges.
