Helping children overcome maths anxiety – activities and guidance

Helping children who are anxious about maths can be a challenge. Your child might be resistant to your help, or you might not know how best to develop their understanding of a particular problem.

We've teamed up with the financial services organisation, TP ICAP, to bring you this guidance, along with tried and tested resources to help you.

We recommend that you read the 'before you start' guidance first.
