Use TV to Help Your Child Practice Math

Here's a way to turn your child’s favorite TV show into an opportunity to practice math skills.

During the program, have your child keep track of the number of minutes used for commercials. Next, have your student compare that number to the number of minutes spent on the program. Which is greater? Then, help your child make a bar graph to show the results.

To extend the practice, have your elementary schooler watch a program aimed at children and compare the results with a graph of a program aimed at adults that you choose.
