About this class

Maths is a subject that many children (and parents) struggle with. More and more, parents are using maths apps to help their children's maths learning. But how do we know if these apps really work? When can children start using these apps? Should you go for a paid app or are free apps equally good? In this masterclass, you will learn everything you need to know about maths apps and also about many other maths related topics, such as if maths ability is inherited or how to best help your child with their maths homework. This masterclass is of interest to all parents and caregivers whose children struggle with maths.
