My 5 years old kid, Josh, likes math pretty much, he always actively askes me to teach him math knowledge from when he was three. So I picked some topics I thought which are suitable for him as listed below. It turns out he enjoys them very much, if your kid likes math as well, this list may give you a roadmap for reference.

  • Power, Extracting, Logarithm
  • Reciprocal, Absolute Value, Opposite
  • GCD (greatest common divisor), LCM (least common multiple)
  • Modulo
  • Decomposition of prime factors
  • Factorial
  • Law of commutation, Law of association, Law of distribution
  • Precedence and parenthesis
