 Maths Websites: 

Parents, why not encourage your child to develop a love for Maths by using the following websites, many of which are used during the day, at school. They are invaluable in helping your child revise for tests or brush up on Maths skills they may have forgotten. The added bonus is that most sites are free to use! 

 

 

Teaching Videos for Kids, on YouTube and Vimeo: 

 

 Math Antics is the work of two individuals, Rob and Jeremy, who want to make learning maths a little easier for everyone. They know that many students struggle with math and that many teachers and parents need better tools to help students succeed. Their goal is to provide simple and engaging math resources that make learning math more fun for students of all ages.
