It’s our favourite time of year again! 14th of March marks another maths holiday to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π), reminding us that maths is fun and applicable outside the classroom.
About Maths Tips: These tips give parents ideas for maths exercises that will develop their child’s maths abilities. Just as you should read with your child, you should do maths with them as well, using natural language that makes sense to a child. Exploring maths with your child is a great way to interact with them and help them learn about our world.
Today’s parent tip for doing maths with your child focuses on even and odd numbers. One of the first number patterns that children learn is the pattern of even numbers: two, four, six, eight … This counting sequence is often learned on the playground, first as only a song. Later, a connection is made to counting and even numbers. You can help your child make this connection and also learn about odd numbers.
