My son is struggling with maths, I wish I knew how to help


My dad was really enthusiastic about maths and I grew to love it’s challenges too. Teaching was an incredibly rewarding career for me but having a child say “I’m rubbish at maths” or witnessing their thought processes freeze because of maths anxiety, that made me very uncomfortable. When there was a passionate plea from a dad” My son is struggling with maths, I wish I knew how to help”, I thought “I can do something to help with that” and Number Chase was born.


Have fun sharing a maths game


I know that trying to teach your child directly what to do, probably won’t go very well! Instead the Number Chase games and activities have been carefully designed to be fun to share together and enable your child to discover the maths as you play and talk together. There’s parent information too, to help you be confident that the real life maths you share at home will really help your child at school.
I really hope you can experience lots of very special fun moments using Number Chase with your child. I hope it will help you to grow in confidence – to know you really can offer them amazing support with maths even if you thought you were no good at it. I hope that you can use Number Chase to help the next generation feel positive about maths.

Fundamental to Number Chase are these:


Ideas to really help your child with maths at home


☺ Enjoy playing a game together. There will be lots of maths practise and no crosses.
☺ Talk with them about how they got an answer and really value that there are lots of different ways to get to an answer.
☺ Tell them that mistakes are absolutely OK. They shape new ideas and lead to the most powerful learning.
☺ If you had a bad experience of maths at school, try your very best not to pass this on- it can be different for them.
☺ Tell them that brain science has now proved that everyone can learn maths to the highest level.
☺ Try to involve your child in the maths you use in your day, cooking, shopping, planning...
☺ Look out for the beauty of the shapes and patterns all around us.

Most importantly,
Have fun,
Sue
