Tips for helping your child to enjoy maths: • measuring their height and working out how much they've grown • on car journeys - playing number-plate games, adding and subtracting with road signs, thinking about speed by dividing distance by time • at the shops - weighing fruit and vegetables, budgeting with pocket money, working out the relative value of products by comparing prices and weight
