Looking for ways help your child learn maths from home?
Your home is already a learning environment. For ideas on how to engage with maths using everyday experiences and resources found around your home, see Maths at our house.
If you are looking for extra ways to support your child’s learning in maths, we have provided two types of weekly plans that include problems and activities, organised by school year levels:
- Weekly plans: Using online resources
Each of these plans has five sessions. Each session has activities using the resources here on nzmaths that should take about 45 minutes. Feel free to pick and choose ideas from these plans to find activities for your child.
These weekly plans use e-ako maths, an online tool developed by the Ministry of Education. e-ako modules are more like classroom lessons than games, and therefore your child may require some guidance to get the most out of these. Number Facts is a learning tool on e-ako maths that finds out the number facts your child knows and teaches them the ones they don’t.
Getting started on e-ako maths
Your child's teacher may have already set up an account for them. If so use the login and password they have given you.
If not, follow these instructions to set up an account.
- Weekly plans: Using offline resources
These plans are designed to be printed and then completed offline over several days. Notes for whānau are included.
The activities include mathematical problems to solve, projects to work on, and number facts to practice. Some of the activities may require support from parents or whānau.
