One of the best ways to help your child develop a love of mathematics is to let them see you having fun with maths too. Your positive attitudes, your willingness to challenge yourself and your sense of enjoyment are invaluable in shaping your child's view of the subject. So why not give yourself permission to have a little fun with maths too.
The current Maths Fun for Mums and Dads challenge is Sudoku. Simply click on 'Play' above to test your skills. If you have the opportunity, you may like to invite your child to join you and think through the problems together as you play, or if you're child's old enough, challenge the family to achieve the highest score then share your experiences and achievements when you're done.
Alternatively, you may simply like to play some time you have a few quiet minutes. If so, remember 'Alt-Tab' when the boss walks past - unless the boss is you :)
