For a few of us, maths has never been the favourite subject! The array of numbers and symbols has frightened us even in our dreams. One main reason for this could be the way in which maths was taught. If taught in an innovative way, maths can be interesting and fun.
Most children are taught maths using only books. As a result, they are unable to connect theories and theorems with reality. Teaching maths the creative and fun way will create a desire to learn the subject. You can creatively use everyday objects like fruits, utensils, posters and even trash to impart basic knowledge about numbers, shapes and dimensions to your child. Your child can also use these articles as a do-it-yourself kit. This innovative method of teaching will instil in him an interest for the subject and a sense of relatability with the world around.
Galileo had said, “Nature is written in mathematical language,” and it holds absolutely true if you can interpret the world around with the eyes of a mathematician. You can turn Galileo’s quote into reality by using the objects in your child’s natural surroundings to give him the conceptual knowledge of maths. It will also help him learn maths faster.

Learn basic concepts of Maths in a very concrete way using Oranges. This will be a very interesting mathematical experiment.
In this experiment, we will explore the area of triangles. The area of both the rectangle and the parallelogram will remain the same. Children can explore the conservation of area through games.
A cylinder with the same radius and height as that of a cone has three times more volume. Make a cone from a water proof tetra pak to fit snugly into a film can cylinder. Now fill the cone thrice with sand and pour it in the cylinder to fill it up...
Synergy means that the WHOLE was more than the sum of the parts!! Check out how...
It states that the square of the right angle triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
In school you might have measured several angles using the protractor. This would have given you a feel for angles. Now, we will experience the joy of measuring angles in another way.
Convert a triangle to a rectangle of equal area...
The T puzzle is a very old and challenging puzzle. It consists of 4 separate pieces which when assembled together make a T shape. It is a very counter-intuitive puzzle. It looks easy but it is difficult to assemble.
