Carol Vorderman's Got The Maths Factor!
Carol Vorderman, Britain's most famous numbers expert, has an online maths school www.themathsfactor.com, the world's first structured online maths school which teaches children as well as their parents.
If you've never used the words "Maths" and "Fun" in the same sentence, then check out themathsfactor.com and prepare to be enlightened! The website is packed with fun things for children to do and Carol recommends they do at least five compulsory maths sessions per week, each lasting from 15 - 20 minutes. Each session includes video lessons from Carol, maths to music (times tables with dancers and rap and rock & roll), interactive games, rewards, feedback and avatars, but it requires plenty of practice using the proper language of maths and its symbols.
Carol says "l am so proud of themathsfactor.com. It's the culmination of years of work so that children and their parents can learn maths in the simplest way possible. Anyone can be good with numbers if they are taught well and they practice, and themathsfactor.com will prove it. We have built technology so that children will learn at their own pace, and a love of numbers is inherent in everything we do. I also explain to parents all of the new numeracy methods taught in schools and tell them every week exactly what their child is about to learn and what games they can play away from the computer. I believe that our Times Tables course is simply the best available in the world. By the end of the package, children will know up to 12 x 12 automatically and the world of mathematics will open up for them. As a Mum, l know how hard it can be for parents to know exactly what to do to encourage children with maths, so we also provide games for each precise piece of learning to print out and play. I simply want all children to be the very best they can be with numbers, arithmetic and mathematics. Please come and try some free lessons to see what l mean."
There is also a unique system for parents to automatically reward their children if they complete a certain number of home works, which has been developed to encourage children and parents to learn together. The aim of themathsfactor.com is clear - the development of the child is the priority, as is nurturing their love and understanding of maths.
themathsfactor.com offers excellent maths tutoring 24 hours a day, seven days a week from Â£10 per month (with an average of Â£5 per month for the Times Tables package, depending on the progress of each child).
Thousands of children are now using themathsfactor.com every day doing millions of sums a month, and loving it.
