A child using Time for New Mentals – Foundation will need some assistance in reading the activities and developing an understanding of mathematic concepts - a parent should resist the temptation to actually provide answers.
As a parent you help your child learn everyday. This book provides activities to help develop concepts, processes and proficiencies needed for the development of mathematics, which parents can assist with as the child moves from unit to unit.
At all times encourage and praise each units performance by the child. Help by checking answers, but remember the understanding of mathematics concepts develop over time with practise and doing.
Enjoy, encourage and praise your child's work at home as he/she moves towards mastering the proficiencies and understanding of mathematics. this book provides activities to enable parents to develop the child's concepts, processes and proficiencies in mathematics.
