    Five Benefits Why Kids Should Study Mathematics

    Why Kids Should Study Mathematics

    Mathematics is food for the brain - Dr. Arthur Benjamin

    Mathematics is the foundation of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) subjects. Math or mathematics, whatever you may call it, may be positioned at the of this acronym, but when it comes to learning, math is crowned as the king of all science subjects.

    There is no denying math is not everyone’s cup of tea, but if taught in the right way, anybody can excel in it. Simple steps and simple explanations make math easy and engrossing. We know the big benefits of excelling in math therefore we are set to empower students by developing advanced and mental math skills in students through our Advanced Math Course, a combination of Common Core Standards, Vedic Math, Mental Math, and Power Skills.

    Now, you must be wondering what the big benefits of learning math are.

    We would love to share the top 5 benefits of learning math.

    1. Improving cognitive functions

    Those who love mathematics know that mathematical thinking develops the brain. According to Dr. Benjamin, a professor of mathematics, math helps you think precisely, decisively, and creatively and helps you look at the world from multiple perspectives.

    Improving cognitive functions

    Studying math also helps in developing skills such as systematic thinking, problem-solving, sequence and pattern recognition, etc.

    2. Improves working memory

    Some people instantly take out a calculator or use pen and paper to do simple calculations. But if you know mental math, your mind will work as a calculator and you may complete the calculations before others.  

    Improves working memory

    That’s why we focus on mental math as it improves working memory. 

    3. Improves visual processing

    Visual processing skill is a must to excel in mathematics. A mathematical brain works faster than a computer; it can quickly compare, relate, and interpret visual information.

    For instance, in the classroom, the teacher writes 35+13 =? 

    If the children’s visual processing is developed, then they will process the information and answer this without even blinking their eyes.  

    Improves visual processing

    The same goes for advanced learners who will be able to do bigger calculations by processing the information.

    4. Develop logical reasoning

    Dr. Matthew Inglis and Dr. Nina Attridge of the Mathematics Education Centre argue that learning mathematics can develop and hone general skills, such as logical thinking, the ability to analyze problems based on assumptions, and an awareness of how underlying assumptions can influence analytical conclusions or thinking. 

    Develops logical reasoning

    Logical reasoning has long-term benefits. As a team leader, you can use it to make decisions and solve problems. As an innovator, you can use this skill to come up with innovative ideas.

    5. Improves creative thinking

    According to Monash University, in mathematics, creative thinking occurs when students generalize. Generalizing involves identifying common properties or patterns across more than one case and communicating a rule (conjecture) to describe the common property, pattern, or relationship. 

    Improves creative thinking

    The benefits of learning advanced math are much larger, we have shared these five points to sensitize you. If you go deeper, you will find plenty of benefits of pursuing math. Our mission is not to impose anything on children, we hand-hold them through the learning process and they get engrossed without even realizing that.

    Frequent Asked Questions (FAQs)

    1. At what age is it appropriate for kids to start learning math?

    Ans: Math concepts can be introduced to children as early as three years old. However, formal math instruction typically commences in kindergarten or first grade. Starting with fundamental concepts like counting, shapes, and measurement is advisable, as these lay the groundwork for more advanced math skills.

    2. How can I assist my child with math learning at home?

    Ans: Supporting your child with math at home involves several strategies. Create opportunities for them to practice what they are learning in school through simple counting or measurement activities. Foster problem-solving skills by engaging in puzzles or games together. Encourage them to ask questions and articulate their reasoning while working on math problems.

    3. What should I do if my child expresses a dislike for math?

    Ans: If your child doesn't enjoy math, it may be due to perceived difficulty. In such cases, try explaining concepts using different approaches. Seek out resources, such as educational games or apps, that make learning math an enjoyable experience. Additionally, acknowledge and praise your child's efforts and progress, even during challenges, to cultivate a positive attitude toward math.

    I wonder, what will happen if mathematics does not exist?

    If mathematics were nonexistent, a multitude of essential facets in our lives, spanning technology and science to economics and engineering, would be profoundly impacted. The absence of math would strip away our capacity to quantify, measure, and foresee numerous phenomena. The extent of our problem-solving skills, comprehension of patterns, and ability to make sense of the surrounding world would be significantly curtailed

    Some are naturally gifted in math, but everyone can improve with practice and learning. Math is both talent and skill, affected by cognition and environment.
