One of the most common questions I've been asked over the years at Parents' Evening is:
'How can I help my child with their maths at home?' Many of you seem to be worried that you will teach your children the 'wrong' way of calculating because the strategies we use today are in many cases different and slightly alien to those that many of you were taught at school. Therefore, I'll be giving examples of our calculation methods on this page along with useful leaflets, websites and APPs to help make learning maths at home fun and stress free.
Based on extensive research, I have two top tips for you all; these, I can't guarantee will make your child an amazing mathematician, but I can say will provide them with a platform to success.
Top Tip 1: Tell your children they are good at maths.
Top Tip 2: Pretend you love maths (even if you hated maths at school yourself!)
I've added some more invaluable tips from Professor Jo Boaler in the document below.
