Default Khan Academy

We love Khan Academy.
We love the way it is all levels to all people. You can follow the 'star-chart' which guides you through the Maths universe from 1+1 to calculus, or you can just click on 'calculus' and have a go! No-one stops you!
Nor do they stop you doing the same thing over and over again, my son likes 'telling the time' and 'creating bar charts', ad infinitum.
We love it because it is CLEAR ON THE PAGE.
We love that Sal Khan does real-time video explanations and doesn't edit out mistakes, just corrects himself.. mistakes happen, that's part of the lesson.
Points and badges awarded for clear rounds, but also for sticking at stuff you've had trouble with..
We love Khan Academy!
Well, you did ask.

Lightbulb Useful online free resources (from a math's teachers perspective)

www.worksheetworks.com (free worksheets on just about anything)

www.tes.co.uk (where teachers themselves find loads of their resources, signing up is free)

www.mangahigh.com (someone else already suggested it, and you have a limited access for free, but it is fun and very good)

www.amathsdictionaryforkids.com (great visual charts and definitions of stuff)

emaths.co.uk (for anyone interested in formal testing at some point, has a bank of exam papers and a couple of interactive ones. oh and has science and english papers too)

will put some more ideas up soon...

if you have any questions that you think a qualified maths teacher might be of help with, please feel free to pick my brain.

Default Videos to help home educators with ideas for maths.

There are some videos with ideas to use in teaching maths to your child at home at this Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5j...7I9ZRl_2kADFcg

Mainly useful for young children, as most of them are dealing with numbers below 20. There are some useful mathematical explanations.

Received this recommendation from Frank, who is

...an ex-teacher (of science) who finds himself needing to teach his nephew science and maths.

Here is the best site I have found for teaching maths. It follows the National Curriculum (England & Wales) as it currently stands but can be used for other curricula. It has a clear curriculum year by year, detailed lesson plans, workbooks, interactive tutorials, tests and assessment and really needs bringing to the attention of home schooling parents. And it is FREE.
