Sobre esta clase

Do you or your child get nervous when having to do anything related to numbers and maths? Do you or your child say ‘I am so bad at maths’, ‘I am not a number person’. If that is your case, or your child’s, you may be experiencing maths anxiety. In this masterclass, Dr Thomas Hunt, explains what maths anxiety is and gives very useful tips to help our children if this is their case. This masterclass is of interest to parents whose children struggle with maths. And for parents themselves (I, for one found this masterclass incredibly useful!).
