How to support your child in Mathematics
Have you ever wished that you understood current Maths methods better? How your child is taught how to add, divide, subtract and multiply involves methods that may be very different from how parents were taught when they were in school. This can often cause confusion when trying to support your child at home.
The main methods used in each stage by the majority of pupils for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are shown. These methods are introduced throughout the teaching year so most pupils should be familiar with all methods by the end of the year. Each ‘Make yourself a maths star’ booklet also shows typical maths vocabulary that children will be acquiring and using at this stage. The multiplication section also explains which tables facts they are expected to know in that stage.
