If math is difficult for your child, or if they just can’t seem to get interested in math, online tutoring can help them learn at a pace that’s more comfortable for them. When it comes to math, sometimes a new way of looking at difficult concepts can be valuable too. These resources can give your child a new perspective on math concepts, make math less intimidating, and even help them enjoy math, and online tutoring, a little more.

TED Talks are a great way to explore a wide range of topics, including math. TEDEd math videos focus on presenting math in new and interesting ways that make it a lot more fun to learn about concepts such as fractals, probability and even calculus. With fun activities and entertaining video clips, these can be a great way to show your child that math doesn’t have to be boring, and that it has plenty of interesting real-world applications. Topics such as “The Scientific Way to Cut a Cake” and “The Mathematics of Sidewalk Illusions,” plus clips on math history and famous mathematicians, can help them maintain their interest in math between online tutoring sessions.
