Math-U-See for Parents & Homeschooling
How can you gain the confidence to teach maths and
give your child the help with maths they need?
Maths Empowerment for Everyone
Maths is a keystone in all our lives.
It helps us to navigate simple, everyday tasks like shopping, splitting a bill or doing our taxes effortlessly. But it’s also part of the deeper foundations for greater successes in our lives: our aspirations, career ambitions and life goals.
Yet many children grow up struggling to wrap their heads around maths. Abstract concepts can seem impossible to grasp when taught in ways that don’t support their unique learning style.
Struggling with maths in childhood can easily develop into a lifelong lack of confidence and enthusiasm for maths. This can impact their future capacity and willingness to learn this crucial skill.
As you look to offer them help with maths, whether through homeschooling or informally, you may also unearth some insecurities of your own with maths. You may even question how you’ll be able able to teach maths to them effectively.
