I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to build their numeracy skills so that they can shine in whatever field they choose. As adults, we need to support them on that journey.
As a Money Mindset coach & mother of a child that struggles with maths, I understand not only the massive struggles that a child can have growing up struggling with maths, but the lifelong mental & social impact of not being confident with telling the time, checking payslips, paying bills, budgeting & employment opportunities.
Just like reading, maths is everywhere, we use it all the time. For some of us, it is easy to understand. For some of us, we need to learn it in a different or creative way. For example, half a chocolate block may be easier to understand for fractions, rather than half a pizza. MFAL teach in a way that each child learns, so that the knowledge is understood, practiced and retained.
As a friend of MFAL, I get to see first hand the level of confidence that increases with the knowledge that the children have gained from their lessons. I fully support the work that MFAL does to break down any barriers for our rangatahi, so that they can be the best they can be, now and in the future.
