Maths Tutoring Specialist Explains Why Doing Maths in Daily Life is Important
PERTH, Australia December, 2012 – Children working on their maths trying to solve a confusing equation sometimes blurt out “Why do I have to do maths? I can’t use this when I grow up!” or “Maths is boring! This is a waste of time!” But education, math and finance experts all agree, this is not true at all. Simple everyday tasks such as paying the bills, balancing the monthly budget, and saving money, among many others, require at least a basic knowledge of mathematics.
Janice McGuire, Teaching Manager at Perth English and maths tutoring service NumberWorks’nWords, says, “Children need strong maths skills because mathematics is a learning requirement that crosses all subjects and is a very important part of career development once the student graduates from school.” www.numberworksnwords.com.au/
The fact remains, however, that maths is not very popular with primary and high school students. And with the release of a study conducted by the University of Chicago, which found that maths can activate the part of the brain which is responsible for an individual experiencing physical pain and visceral threat detection*, it’s official – maths can hurt.
Anne S. could see that her son, Sam, was struggling with maths but she didn’t have the time or the necessary skills to help him. She tried the Perth maths tutoring service offered at NumberWorks’nWords and after only a few weeks, she said, “I know that it’s only early days but I have already noticed an improvement, not only with his mathematics, but also in his overall attitude towards all his school subjects. He even said to me just last week that he likes Maths now.” www.numberworksnwords.com.au/
