Here are some general strategies that will help your children incorporate maths learning into their lives.

Look for Maths everywhere:

Make maths real by finding it in the most unlikely places!! The things around us have maths in them and you can use these things to develop children's sense of number, space, measurement (volume, width, length height and time). If you show your children that Maths is a natural and important part of life, they won't treat it as something to be scared of and hence the attitude that develops towards maths is a positive one.

Remembering that children look to adults for guidance in life, it is only natural to expect that if we show an enthusiasm towards maths (and learning in general), so to will our children.

Encourage 'hands-on' hobbies and activities that naturally involve maths.

This could include assembling kits, chemistry sets, cooking, building, making models etc, woodwork etc.
