Introduction Video

The purpose of these clips are to support parents in discussing and helping their children with mathematics.

The approach to explaining the mathematical concept should focus on supporting understanding rather than rules or tricks to remember. This supports longer term learning and connections between topics to be established.

Often showing more than one representation or having another explanation can support (as long as focused on the concept and not a rule). Doing so can often reinforce concepts.

The clips on this site have been created by London Grid for Learning to support parents in helping their children in maths. BEC have been given access to these clips, which reflect age related expectations.
