If your child is having difficulty with Maths concepts, it is important to make the child's teacher aware of this so that they can provide additional support where possible. You may also find the additional resources on this page useful
Remember if you are helping your child with their Maths homework, the terminology with regard to addition and subtraction may have changed considerably since your own school days - terms like 'borrowing' and 'paying back' are no longer used - instead you will hear your kids use terms such as 're-grouping'. In order to help rather than confuse your child it is important to understand the way these concepts are taught now in schools. The following resources from the NCCA will help you understand the Maths Curriculum and the terminology and methods used.
