For some students, math is an intimidating subject that they don't want anything to do with. Still, this is an unrealistic approach as math is used in everyday life. Moreover, everybody is capable of learning math, they just need to let go of their fear of it. If your child is overwhelmed by this school subject and you would like to encourage them not to be, follow the tips mentioned here.

How to Encourage Your Student to Do Math Confidently

Show Them You Aren't Intimidated By It

If your child is feeling uncertain of their math abilities, it may be that they are imitating something they see at home. If you mention that math is hard or avoid it in general, they'll start to believe that it's something difficult that they can't do. Set a good example and do math!

Provide the Necessary Support

A great way to help your child get over their math anxiety is to encourage them, motivate them to keep going, answer any doubts, provide tutoring if necessary, join in on occasions; and more than anything, be there for them.

Employ Math in Real Scenarios

If your child views math as an abstract concept that they'll never use, they'll lose interest in it, and it will be harder for them to learn it. For that reason, you should let them see that math is necessary, and it's everywhere: in the utility bills, in songs, in the kitchen, in games, and more.

Learn with Games

Speaking of math being present in games, you can use games to help your child get closer to math and learn it. For instance, nowadays there are a myriad of apps that can help your child practice and improve in math without feeling intimidated by it.
