As a parent/carer, you are there to give your child their first experiences of maths: from sorting toys to baking cakes, from going shopping to learning to ride a bike (and if you're wondering about the maths in riding a bike, just think about speed, distance, balance, wheels etc - it's all maths!).
Even if you don’t feel confident with maths, you can still make a huge difference to your child’s numeracy confidence and ability.
- Helping your child feel positive about maths is really important and it’s something every parent can do.
- Maths is everywhere – pointing this out helps children understand the importance of maths, and enjoy it too.
