Questions about numbers
What
to do
1. Let your child think of a number between a stated range of numbers
while you try to guess the number by asking questions.
Here is a sample conversation.
Child: I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100.
Parent: Is it more than 50?
Child: No.
Parent: Is it an even number?
Child: No.
Parent: Is it more than 20 but less than 40?
Child: Yes.
Parent: Can you divide this number up into 3 equal parts?
And so on .
2. After you have guessed your child's number, let your child guess a
number from you by asking similar questions.
The questions asked demonstrate many different levels of math.
They can serve as learning tools for explaining concepts.
For example, you can take the opportunity to explain what an even
number is if your child does not know.
PS: Consider doing more fun printable
math activities.
