Guide for families
The Mathscots is an animation series that has been developed to support numeracy at home. Following the introductory episode, there are 9 stand-alone episodes (each between one and two minutes long). There are also longer play versions of the videos with in-built pause buttons to encourage families to talk about the numeracy ideas presented.
For each episode, there are suggested ideas and activities that you may like to explore with your child/ren. Whether you choose to explore a few activities or many, the important thing is to learn alongside your child/ren and encourage curiosity and discussion.
