Make your child a Maths Star!

 

Many parents find that their children are using methods or strategies, which are very different from those used in the past. This can often cause confusion when trying to support your child at home. A Parents' Guide to helping your children with Maths, published by DASP(Dorchester Area Schools Partnership) gives a record of the strategies your child will be using in school.
