Teach your child division is a reference guide and home-teaching kit which will help you understand exactly what division skills your child is expected to have mastered in each year of the primary school curriculum. Primary school teacher and parent Matt Revill has compiled information, tips and activities to ensure that you have the right information at your fingertips so you can quickly make sure your child has fully grasped and achieved each and every skill for their correct year group and using the same methods that they are taught (rather than confusing them with the one you were taught at school!). You'll be able to print off highly targeted and child-friendly fun worksheets to help them master each of the essential skills as they progress through school – in fun, five-minute sessions.

In Teach your child division, you’ll discover:

  • The vocabulary/terminology your child is being taught at school, so you can use the same concepts at home.
  • An explanation of the methods they’re taught to use so you don’t end up doing more harm than good by trying to teach them in a different way.
  • Why it is so important to talk to your child about their learning so that they understand that feeling nervous or confused about maths is normal and something you can overcome together.
