One of the most common things parents ask maths teachers at parents night is “how can I help my child with maths at home?” We’ve come up with some resources to help parents do just that:
- our parents handbook for numeracy explaining the methods we teach (download the parents handbook here)
- a selection of Question and Answer booklets which parents can use to test their son/daughter on the key facts for the level they’re currently working at.
- For parents of S1/2/3 pupils go to http://www.newbattle.org.uk/Departments/Maths/s1s2s3.html. There is a table showing each maths class with a link to the most appropriate booklet for the level that class is studying at.
- For parents of S4/5/6 pupils go to http://www.newbattle.org.uk/Departments/Maths/index.html and choose the page for the qualification your son/daughter is studying.
If you want to discuss your child’s maths in more detail, contact Mr D Watkins, Principal Teacher of Maths at the school.
