One way to make it easier (and more fun) is by using hands-on teaching techniques such as using Lego Bricks to demonstrate and manipulate math concepts. Multiplication and Division are great two great concepts where Lego Math can be used to help kids understand the relationships and techniques for successfully completing multiplication and division problems.

One great benefit of these books is that they are done in short, easy to implement sections. You can do the sample questions with your child, or let them have a go on their own.

Each Lego Brick Math Book has not only the step by step (with large color photos) text, but a separate Student Edition you can purchase that has the worksheets and directions in an easy to use and follow format so kids can do the work right in them!

I highly recommend you BUY THE STUDENT EDITIONS! While with the fractions book we were able to print and create papers for her to do the work on, it is SO much easier to have the corresponding Student Edition for them to write and draw in!
