ParentPower: Operation Maths

A Parents’ Guide to Primary School Arithmetic


Are you unclear about how maths is taught in primary schools today, and where the methods that you learnt at school fit in? 

Do you struggle to help your child with Maths at home?

Are you bewildered by the terms partitioning, chunking and place value headings?

Then this is the book for you!

This book will empower you to support your child to learn the current maths methods taught in primary schools today. It provides a comprehensive, stage-by-stage approach to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, starting from the basics taught at the beginning of primary school, and progressing right through to the methods used in Year 6. 

Explanations are supported by many fun illustrations and clear diagrams, along with worked examples and clear definitions of common terms. ParentPower, an everyday superhero, provides hints and tips along the way to build your understanding of the methods used and to guide you towards other helpful pages of relevant information.

At each stage there are lots of ideas for mental maths activities you can do with your child to build their confidence and to support the written techniques learnt at school.

Most of all, this book will equip you with the knowledge to make maths enjoyable and fun for you and your child.
