improving problem skills
We find my kid always know only one way to solve problems , never really use brain to think other or better ways to solve problem.

Meiji: Ambassador Swanbeck, I have concluded that your treaty is NOT in the best interests of my people. So sorry, but you may not.
Swanbeck: This is an outrage!

I have my sons (ages 10 and 8) in an after-school program called Spirit of Math, in which they are taught to tackle math in problem-solving ways, not just pure arithmetic. The problem you just described (adding up numbers by grouping them in easier, more manageable ways) is one of the core lessons at SoM (called Relocation Properties). I just searched their website and it doesn't look like they have any campuses in Edmonton unfortunately. Maybe you can contact them and ask if they have any plans to open up a campus in Edmonton.

My son is in spirit of math and in terms of problem solving, I feel he uses one way as well

Yes! This is the best way to do it. They need to build connections in their brain.smartie wrote: ↑ My son is in spirit of math and in terms of problem solving, I feel he uses one way as well
I think its just he is still kid and hasn't experience more
I feel the best way is throw kids to the real world and let them solve the problem together like go to a park and say invent a game so we can play together and you can only use things you can find in the park
