Does your child struggle with math? How do you engage your children in a way that will not only keep their attention but allow for real learning to take place? My special guests are Sarah-Anne Fernandes and Trevor Dixon. Sarah-Anne is a leading UK Primary Maths Consultant who has worked with several schools across the UK to improve maths teaching and learning. Trevor Dixon is a Maths Assessment expert and has been part of the UK’s national assessment marking process for pupils aged 10 and 11 for a number of years. Special discount code provided.

The topics we covered:

1. Why is teaching math so difficult for parents?
2. How can you engage your child to have an interest in math?

Struggling Teaching Math – Try this:

1. Spiral curriculum approach with spaced repetition.
2. The ability for the student to review with spaced intervals so the learning is retained and fully mastered. This increases maths confidence develops students’ ability to tackle a wide range of problems, and ultimately boosts students’ grades.
