### Make Math More Fun – Mathnook Tutorial Videos

December18

Mathnook has long been the leader in assisting students in learning to love mathematics.  They have created a wonderful website with a plethora of online video games that make math more fun for young minds to explore.  These games run the gamut from basic computations and measurements to more elaborate skills such as geometry and algebra.  But what if you need help with the games and skills themselves?

Mathnook has a Youtube channel which can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/mathnook.  This channel includes tutorials for almost every game on the website which can help your child if they need help with a specific game.  For instance, a game like Math Balloons Decimals Game features a nine minute long instructional video which shows all of the features and options on the game, the end goal of the game, and how to perform the mathematical concept that is at the core of this particular game, in this case, decimals.  No matter what skill level your child is, he or she can be successful with these math games            When you visit Mathnook, you will find a series of fun video games that are designed to cover a variety of topics that are taught in the school system throughout the year.  Just the overall topics, which are organized at the top of the screen, include the following skills:
• Algebra
• Comparison
• Coordinate Grid
• Counting
• Decimal
• Division
• Estimation
• Even/Odd Numbers
• Factors
• Fractions
• Geometry
• Integers
• Math Vocabulary
• Measurements
• Money
• Multiplication
• Number Order
• Order of Operation
• Patterns
• Place value
• Prime/Composite Numbers
• Rounding
• Sequence
• Subtraction
• Time

These skills represent the bulk of what a student is expected to learn in mathematics from pre-K all the way up to early high school.  And no one can deny the importance of mathematics in the current curriculum.  With a greater emphasis being placed on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) courses, students are having even more stress put on them to excel in these courses.  Many of the higher paying jobs of the future will require a background in one or more of these fields.  That is why it is important to give your child a leg up now while they are still at the impressionable state.  Since math skills build on each other, learning and mastering each one is of vital importance and these tutorial videos and games are a great way to do this while still keeping the learning process fun and informative.
