Was very encouraged by a comment made about the website by a parent. ‘It’s so welcoming and very friendly!’ Great I thought – if that means people can visit a website about maths and not be put off and feel welcomed, I am very pleased!
Stopped by a friend today who did the ‘Take the Test’. She didn’t know there was another way to subtract that was very different from her method. She has made a mental note to make sure she went into her daughter’s school when maths evening available.
Great I thought – it has warned her that methods might be different, and she is going to do something about it! Good on her!
No sooner had this site gone live than we have a couple of friends over for dinner; discussion turns to my work, I tell them about Take the Test and it turns out (with much No, I do it that way and You don’t, do you?) that they subtract differently. What’s more, they’d been married for 25 years and never realised… I’m looking forward to hearing some more stories!
What an exciting and interesting time to be launching my website!
It’s the beginning of a new school year. For some, it is the start of a new phase in your life as your child starts school for the first time.
But in it all, as parents, you are there for your children, guiding them through.
My hope is that my website will be of help to you as you do that.
