We’ve created the National Numeracy Family Maths Toolkit to help families enjoy learning maths together.
The website is full of ideas, resources and activities that can help children up to 13 years old explore maths in everyday life.
We also have an online shop for parents to purchase our Everyday Activity Packs for ages 4-11.
Top tips for parents
- Be positive about maths. Try not to say things like "I can’t do maths" or "I hated maths at school" - your child may start to think like that themselves.
- Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving numbers and measuring, such as shopping, cooking and travelling.
- Praise your child for effort rather than for being "clever". This shows them that by working hard they can always improve.
