Our tamariki learn more when their parents and whanau are interested and involved.  There are many things we can do to support our children's learning in mathematics by using the everyday experiences and resources that we find around the house.  One way to support maths learning is to notice the maths all around us.

A maths kete is a handy resource to have in the home when your child wants to have some fun with maths or they need a little help with their homework.  It can be made up of items readily found in the home or things you can pick up cheaply.  You can use items like:

  • scrap paper, newspapers, magazines
  • pens, pencils, highlighters
  • calculator, measuring tape or ruler
  • maps (you can get these from tourist info centres or bus centre)
  • playing cards, play money, dice
  • calendar or a clock
