# Why are math and science important for kids?

Unlike other subjects, mathematics and science basics need to be understood well before learning complex topics.

The significance of tuning the brain to find solutions for mathematics-based equations or grasp scientific concepts profoundly impacts the development of several areas of the child’s brain. Mathematics, for instance, probes a lot of questions in the child’s mind about the next step causing the child to think and discover more and more. Science opens the door to new possibilities. It enables the child to think divergently, as opposed to other subjects. It is very important for brain development that a child learns science and mathematics from a very young age.

We at Guru At Home realize that math and science are subjects that enable a gateway to higher education and beyond. Although the weightage in terms of subjects is equal overall, our online tutors feel it is more important for the child to familiarize himself/herself with mathematics and science subjects more than others because of the complexity and the way it ignites the creative section of the brain.

Our modular system of teaching helps the child to remember and recall the basics very intricately in the further years of education. The convolutions of the brain enable it to store more information, meaning the brain has a lot of capacity and data can be stored effectively by inputting it in the right manner.

## 5 Benefits of Science and Math For Elementary Kids

### Math and Science Strengthen Problem-Solving Skills

Mathematics and science involve a series of steps that increase the thinkability of the student. Instead of recalling and deducing an answer directly, a couple of steps must be taken to solve scientific problems or mathematical questions. The steps include:

1. Observation and problem definition
2. Creating a hypothesis
3. Testing the deduced assumption
4. Confirm/disconfirm the hypothesis and start over accordingly.

In the process of confirming the hypotheses, different areas of the brain are put to work which makes the child’s mind sharper and faster.

### Math and Science Teach Critical Thinking

To resonate with smartness, one has to master the skill of critical thinking. Studying the topics of mathematics and science would encourage critical thinking, scientific reasoning, analyzing, evaluating and the ability to solve quantifiable problems. Critical thinking is required to intellectually discipline an individual and studying the concepts of math and science particularly enables it. Tutors at Guru At Home know the importance of the basic concepts and the impact they would have while learning the latter complex topics, so they make sure to deliver their teaching in the best way for the children to be well-versed in the concepts.

### Math and Science Prepare Students for College and Careers

With a massive number of opportunities career-wise, exposure to all subjects is necessary for the child to find his/her interest and pick the right stream. Unlike other topics, switching from a non-scientific background to pursue a career in science is not feasible. But it would be comfortable to switch from mathematics or science to other streams because of the decreasing order of complexity. Guru At Home has tutors who are degree holders in the subject they teach due to which they can understand what the child is good at and provide guidance accordingly.

### Math and Science Equip Students with Knowledge to Address Global Challenges

The future of the world is technology and innovation. Global challenges require knowledgeable individuals especially during times of crisis and recession, to provide strategic solutions to improve the economy. Education plays an important role in laying the foundation for a great nation with wise rulers. Guru at Home increases the confidence of students to become better citizens and make wiser decisions. Home tuitions are the best way to cope with modern-day challenges and Guru At Home offers flexibility in terms of online classes for students all over the world.
