Math at Home

This collection features resources that parents can use with their children at home to foster mathematical thinking skills.

Try to do some math every day if possible when your child is not at school.  This can include math games, activities from Mathletics or activities and learning from the Math Playlist on Learn360.  Consider playing some games and working on activities in Mathletics or other sites such as Khan Academy daily to keep math skills sharp. 

If you find there are too many resources to sort through, you can filter the results using the “Filter Resources” area on the left side of the screen.  Select “Education Level” to narrow your results to a specific education level.   (Please note - for the purposes of this site these "Education Levels" are used when filtering - Lower Primary = K-2, Upper Primary=3-5, Middle Years=6-8, High School=9-12)
