## Learn & Teach Speed Subtracting, Fractions & Geometry in Less than 5 Minutes

* Teach real young children how to subtract through adding.

For example: 5 – 3. Tell them they are on 3 already, & count to 5. When they get to 5, ask them what did they need to get to 5. Tell them it is OK to use their fingers starting out. Give them another one: 7 – 2. Tell them they are at 2. Count on from there. When they get to 7, ask them how many fingers to get to 7. They will get faster the more you practice with them. Much faster counting forwards than backwards.
——

* Teach your Children Whole, Fractions & Geometry by Revealing, they are the same thing with a Different Name. The tools for this technique…Circle, Dollar Bill & Pennies.

Circle (Whole)—>> 360 degrees=\$1 bill (Whole) =100 pennies (Whole)

1/2 Circle—>> Diameter
(180 degrees)=1/2 Dollar=50 cents/pennies….half is half…it does not matter if it is Geometry or Arithmetic. Geometric Term for half of Circle is Diameter. Arithmetic Term for half of \$1 is 50 Cents. In others words, same game with another name. Don’t get confused with labels. Just learn the label names for the type of math you are doing.

1/4 Circle=90 degrees
(Right Angle)=1/4 Dollar=25 cents.

## We Must Prepare Our Youth to Face The World

What better time to help children & teens develop trades than while they still stay home? When they leave home, & get caught up in the grind of adult living full swing, they might not have the money or time or both to learn a trade. We must find out things our young people have a passion for. Not Sports & Entertainment now. I am not driving at that. We must make sure our young people have solid skills. Make sure they can build something. Produce something. Manufacture something. Invent something. Use their hands & minds to the fullest to make a way for themselves & their eventual families.

Jobs are becoming harder & harder to come by. Many factories are closing down or going overseas, where labor is cheaper. The cost of living is going up.

We have to take a more active approach to our future. Our youth is our future. If we fail them, we fail ourselves.

Everyone is not going to college. Might not have the means or time to do so. But there are other ways to learn trades, skills, crafts, etc….A few ways:

Hook up with an older person in the community that has mastered a certain trade, craft, skill.

Try to get them to take the young person under their wings.

Mentorship/Apprenticeship.

Buy books for the young people so they can read up on trades, crafts, skills (How-to books). Something they might be interested in. Something they like or lean toward.

Take the young people to craft & hobby stores or take them to workshops on trades.

We have to take an active approach for the development of our young people. Get them use to reading articles & magazines in various trades and things they might be interested in.

A good plumber, clothing designer, carpenter, mechanic, graphic artist, audio engineer, tile layer, barber, AC & Heating Repair, hairdresser, brick mason, etc…has great value in our communities.
