Helping Children with Mathematics:
Children need time to think and time to answer. When asking your children questions or talking to them about mathematics give them time. Be patient. Professor Doug Clarke
How to help children learn about Money in Mathematics:
There are many ways to help your child including:
- Giving them a moneybox to save and encouraging them to regularly count their money.
- Calculating money amounts and different ways to use coins and notes to make up different amounts, e.g. show me $2.50.
- Calculating change, particularly change from $1 or $10.
- Calculating items that are a better buy at the shop.
