Helping with Maths Top Tips

If you are positive and interested in all areas of maths, including numbers, puzzles and problems, the enthusiasm will rub off and your child will engage in the subject too. When your child gets to maths that you don’t understand, then be honest and then get them to explain how they are doing it in school. This will help them to embed what they have learned. The most important thing you can do to help your child with maths, is give them a positive ‘growth’ mindset and help them to understand that it is OK to have a go and make mistakes because they are all learning opportunities.
