This is very true, if you want a child to be interested and dedicated to something other than just because they are told to do it, they need to have an interest in it. Which is why it is so important for communication between parents, students and teachers to find out what their children like and want.

If the child likes games then the teacher can help to give the parents some resources to use at home. If the child is more artistically driven then you could look at integrating their art with maths. If they are kinethestic, then having them go out and directly applying the skills in a real world environment or through sports is good too. Pool is a fantastic game for learning some higher maths skills.

And most importantly this can be applied not just to maths but any form of teaching! So thank you for sharing your insight :3

For many, “writer’s block” means a frustrating but temporary stall in their progress. For some authors, though, the phrase looms nightmarishly large and describes a recurring and debilitating struggle to move ideas from their mind to the page.Under the pressure of deadlines, almost everyone—from students to professors to…See More
