How can I help my child with Maths?

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.
