Info for Parents


The greatest benefits will come from the online Maths Investigations activities when the children use them at home as well as in school. You may wish simply to let parents know how to access the site and let the children's enthusiasm drive their use. Or you may wish to set homework tasks.

You may also wish to refer parents to the online parent guide, accessible from the menu at the top of the web site home page.
