San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2012 -- Math is often the hardest subject for kids to get their head around. The arrangement of numbers and symbols on the page can often seem cryptic to the uninitiated, and faced with a wall of the undecipherable kids can often just switch off and fall out of love with mathematics for life. Teaching methods are paramount to ensuring this does not happen.
One website getting a lot of attention in the math education sector is MathFileFolderGames.com. The site contains printable educational math games, intended to teach children about mathematical concepts in a fun and interesting way.
The site is aimed at anyone who wants to teach math to middle school age children, whether they are a professional teacher, a home schooling parent, or simply a parent who wishes to give their child a helping hand with math outside of the classroom.
Each game is designed to teach children about a different mathematical concept, from equations games, factors games and even fun fraction games. Printable games have been created to be educational without being dry or boring to children. They come in several different forms, including board games, card games and many others.
The games on MathFileFolderGames.com have been given great endorsements by educational professionals, with many middle school math teachers giving excellent reports of increased understanding in their students after playing the games.
A spokesperson for the site said:
“One of the most important things in education is to create a positive environment where children can experience the joy that can come from understanding new concepts. Playing middle school math games is a great way to foster a fun atmosphere that is conducive to learning. The great thing about playing a game is that it creates an open minded and relaxed frame of mind for mathematical concepts to be absorbed. Our math games are so much fun that students often don’t even realize how much they are learning, but when it comes to test time the results clearly show that they have absorbed a huge amount of understanding from playing the games. We’ve had fantastic reports from teachers and home schooling parents across the country that testify to the great effect that our games have in mathematics education.”
