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.
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.
