Since the 2010 report on education in America issued by the Organization For Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) many parents are resolving to be more involved in helping their children to succeed in school. Among the many homework assignments students receive are exercises in Mathematics.

There are word problems to solve, basic math facts requiring practice, processes to learn and formulas to memorize. Children need to learn these concepts and skills to automatically if they are to be prepared for the demands of Secondary Education. Besides all this, there are the attractions of technology and social media.

Here are some math study techniques for parents to use in helping their kiddos learn the important math skills and processes.

Limiting the use of video games and television: Children need boundaries and rules about what they are doing with their time. Technology, rightly used, can be a boon to them in gaining math acumen. Video games and television belong in the non-education arena. Make rules and be consistent in their enforcement of them. Provide children with the time and routine for learning.

Working: Have your child work actual problems on paper or dry erase board. You can find problems in textbooks or online at the book publisher's website. Some practice sites you can direct him to are Cool-math.com, Fun-brain.com and Math-cats.com, for example.

Talking: Have your student review math concepts he is studying by saying them aloud. For example: "Composite numbers have more than two factors such as 12=1,2,3,4,6,12." "Prime numbers have only two factors such as 7=1,7."

Coloring: Have your student do multi-step problems. Use a different colored pencil for each step. This is helpful for learning the process of long division.

Playing: Time him for 5 minutes on 100 math facts. Search online for free printable math worksheets. Give him five chances to "Beat the Timer." But don't stop there. He needs to advance in his basic math facts until he can do 100 facts in 2 minutes.

I like to break up a homework session by playing ball with the student. I throw to him saying a multiplication fact he needs to practice saying" 7 times 9." He must return the ball to me quickly with the response "63."

Drawing: Encourage the child to draw pictures for fraction problems or for figuring out area and perimeter problems. This technique is invaluable for solving word problems. You know, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Re-reading: Story problems often contain irrelevant information. Have your child re-read the problem and underline the information that is relevant.

Explaining: When a student answers a problem incorrectly, ask him "Why this answer?" Do not correct it for him. He will likely discover his mistake all by himself.

As parents become better advocates for their children by setting some strict standards, children will learn the basic concepts provided in Elementary School. They will be prepared to meet the rigors of Secondary School.

Good luck moms and dads. You are the keys to unlock your children's math minds.
