The Family Maths Toolkit is full of ideas to help parents, families and children aged 13 and under enjoy everyday maths activities together.
Top tips for parents and families
Be positive about maths. Don’t say things like “I can’t do maths” or “I hated maths at school”; your child might start to think like that themselves.
Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving maths such as using money, cooking and travelling.
Praise your child for effort rather than talent – this shows them that by working hard they can always improve.
The National Numeracy Challenge helps adults learn the maths needed for everyday life.
Have a go and develop your own numeracy skills.
