Show them what they will use it for, reading labels, adding prices, depending on their age and what they are working on. Take them to the dollar tree and show them how to add and figure tax. Give them a few dollars to spend.Figure together how much money your child gets in allowance and how to save each week to get that new toy he wants, and when he can have it by. Plan family vacations together and show your teens how to figure expected costs. Showing kids how they will use math in real life will make them more willing to learn it.
Math is made fun for children when the teacher is having fun with it. When you are confident and having fun with math, your children will do the same.
Find out what the child's interests are. If a child enjoys sports, use sports-cards to help with counting, the sports page to teach statistics and formulas. When you find a child's interest, I have seen that their participation in the subject matter increases.
I would highly recommend online drill and practice math games like math baseball. Websites like funbrain dot com are awesome and kids love it and have fun while learning!
You can use a site like http://k8schoollessons.com/ especially kindergarten and KS1 section. They have design the site in such a way that children can even do there math workout online. Look at how the site demonstrate Add tens and ones and subtract tens and ones. It is worth looking this site
