Maths No Problem!
For maths teaching in school we use the ‘Maths No Problem!’ series of textbooks, developed in Singapore and aligned to the UK national curriculum. The focus of the series is on teaching by allowing enough time on a topic for a child to understand it thoroughly before moving on. Find out more about the teaching method at www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk.
Maths No Problem! has also produced a number of learning at home videos and guides to help support your child’s, and your, understanding of the maths concepts they are learning in school. Each video is presented by the Maths No Problem! founder, Dr Yeap Ban Har.
