Learning at home

Looking for ways help your child learn maths from home?

Your home is already a learning environment. It is not necessary to turn it into a classroom. For ideas on how to engage with mathematics using everyday experiences and resources found around your home, see Maths at our house.

Weekly plans

If you are looking for extra ways to support your child’s learning in maths, here are some weekly plans using the resources here on nzmaths. Each session has activities that would take about 45 minutes. Feel free to pick and choose ideas from these plans to find activities for your child.

Our 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.
