Some common math facts that kids can study at home include the difference between odd and even numbers, values of coins, addition, subtraction and multiples of 10. One way to help kids learn basic math facts is to play games. For example, kids can separate a deck of cards into odd and even numbers; the winner is the one who can do this the fastest.
Some common math facts to start with include adding combinations of 10, such as 9 + 1 and 8 + 2, and adding and subtracting the numbers 0, 1 and 2 from any other number. Children can also practice how to add double numbers, such as 2 + 2 and 5 + 5. From there, kids can learn how to add and subtract any number up to 20. They can also practice adding and subtracting 10 using any number up to 200. These facts are suitable for children in first or second grade.
Children in grade three can begin to learn basic multiplication and division facts. For example, students can start by learning how to multiply any number by 0, 5 or 10 and then move to practicing division using these numbers. In grade four, children can review addition and subtraction facts, plus learn to multiply and divide using numbers 6 through 12.
