- Try to make mathematics more concrete and enjoyable by making story problems from your Bible lesson and nature lesson; use a blackboard and write a problem out (or a stick writing in the dirt), letting the student work out the answer, then let the child give the teacher and problem; or, as you are working at a project, make it into a mathematics problem, etc. Help the student to see that mathematics is a simple part of life.
- Practice mental problems – where the child has to work out the answer in his head.
- Let the child work at whatever level he is capable of doing in the workbooks.
