I'm pretty good with practical maths, mental arithmetic, geometry, I can cut a hipped roof from a few measurements using pythagoras theorem but I can't make head nor tail of my daughters year11 homework.
Her teacher tried to enlighten me on the usefulness of quadratic equations but my word is that the most arse about face way of working
And is there a practical application to learning to expand or simplify equations in algebra, that stuff makes my eyes hurt

simples

Fair point though. You need a very good grasp of written English to do well in maths exams these days...

It's an eye opener seeing what the expectation is for year 6 kids to achieve before darting secondary school. Good that more people are getting the chance to see it too.

BBC schools and bitesize have good resources if you get stuck fellas

I'm no mathematician but I did get 5th year advanced C&G so thought I could help my daughter with her homework.
To be honest the question were set in a such a way I couldn't understand what they were asking to me it didn't make mathematical sense.
So she got the hump asked her mum instead

Thankyou gents. I can't argue with that!

My positive thought for today...


As kids of all ages are now being home schooled, parents have the opportunity to get a much better grasp of what they are learning and kids can potentially get to see just how clever their parents actually are. I can remember having some geography homework when I was about 13 and my dad wandering past and saying 'oh is that weather and isobars?'.... he then spent a good hour or so working through it with me and I got to see him being an expert about something that I didn't realise he knew.

Let your kids see you being clever - and in return, let them show you how much they know. And if you both don't know the answer and you have the time and means, then try and find it out together.

An old mate of mine is self isolating due to age and health issues.

He knows I'm stuck in the house alone so he's compiling play lists of music for me to stop me from going mad.
