This homework series has been created for classroom teachers and parents – with students of a range of abilities taken into consideration. The focus will be on reinforcement of "the basics" in math, as well as activities aimed at developing understanding of classroom activities in mathematics. It is sometimes difficult to locate materials suitable for homework activities in the area of specific learning difficulties. Some homework is designed to cover a broad range of topics on one page – making it confusing for some students to read and answer. Some homework activities are not linked to classroom work and do not include examples or answers which enable parents to support their child’s learning. Students with Specific Learning Difficulties experience a range of problems with their academic learning. These aspects include: Difficulties with word recognition and comprehension Coping with pages that are too cluttered and with too many differing requirements Being unable to sequence, recall and apply strategies in abstract situations Striving to process formation – while working to meet deadlines Having trouble with personal organization with their schoolwork. The books in this series are designed with these problems in mind, and whilst pages are designed for the student with learning difficulties, they can also be used as a simple and straightforward introduction to concepts or a reinforcement of mathematical strategies for the whole class. The books will follow a basic format, with a variety of homework topics usually containing a choice of two worksheets. The activities in this book (Book 2) include: Skill drills Greater than / less than values Money skills, including making up amounts, ordering cost prices and working out change Fractions - identifying up to 1/12, equivalent fractions, ordering and adding simple fractions Estimation

Excerpt

Some of the strategies below may be of assistance when supporting your child in their mathematics homework.

• Short and Sweet - Shorter, more frequent sessions of homework minimize
the risk of your child losing concentration. Practising a task over a number
of days will help to reinforce the concept, so try 10 - 15 minutes of homework
each day rather than one hour, once a week.

• A Friendly Place - Create an environment that is consistent, quiet,
comfortable and well lit, with plenty of space for both you and your child to
work together. Have a glass of water for your child to drink. Some students
also work best if they have small snacks to nibble on whilst they work.

• The Right Stuff - Make sure your child has all the necessary equipment
before starting. Some handy things to have include highlighters (to emphasize
important parts of the homework or examples), eraser (so that mistakes can
easily be corrected and there is no mess of scribbling out), sharpener (so that
writing is clear and easy to read), lined scrap paper (with relevant sized lines
and plenty of space for working out and examples).

• Write it Big - A whiteboard may be a useful way of working out problems. It is
easy to see, easy to rub out, and another way of introducing a different
sensory experience to the child.

• In Tune - Background music has been found to be beneficial for some
learners. Classical (Baroque) music has been researched quite extensively
and may be of assistance.

• Check it Off - Using a checklist to tick off tasks that have been done give your
child a sense of achievement as well as helping them to keep their place.
