That said, I cannot see any reason why a parent should be unable to help and guide their child with maths ks2. There is basic numeracy until they are at least 9 or 10 years old - KS1/2 and to teach times tables in an easy way. At this age they are learning the basics, such as addition, subtraction, division and multiplication, which are the foundations of numeracy. Frequently the work done at home is far more valuable than that which is done in a classroom with over 25 students - even if the parent is not a qualified teacher.

8: Listen to what your child is saying. Sometimes children do not understand a problem because they misunderstand the rules or are applying a rule from another maths topic. Be patient and see if you can figure our what the problem is. If they find it difficult to remember multiplication facts, for example, find ways to help them.
9: Don't just teach children to memorise facts. Get them to count backwards and forwards, for example. Teach them the times table, there are easy ways to do this, The exercise helps children see that multiplication is repeated addition, and it also helps them see patterns in numbers, making multiplication something to memorize and to understand.
