Got to agree with the others that Twinkl provide a range of maths teaching resources which my kids enjoy. My kids love their interactive games which makes maths fun for both of them. :D

I have kids joining Singapore math. But, it is harder than the school curriculum and I have to spend significant time helping students, otherwise it is hard for them to continue on their own. Their teacher suggested that the quality of Beestar is higher and more aligned to the school curriculum. Does anyone know about Beestar math? Is it good?

As a non-tech student, I don't find the resources for kids who love math particularly useful for me. I have always found it challenging to deeply engage with mathematics, and I don't necessarily need to study it in-depth.

I recommend looking into resources like Singapore Math or Math Mammoth for your 9-year-old son, who enjoys math and prefers understanding concepts over memorization. Online platforms like https://www.khanacademy.org/ and https://brainhunters.academy/ can supplement his learning. Encourage math-related games and activities, and consider math competitions. To better support him, explore parent/teacher resources from organizations like NCTM. Keep fostering his curiosity and independence in math. Good luck!

Have a look at Beestar.org. It is an online math program designed to help students improve their math skills. It offers a variety of math resources, practice materials and assessments for students at different grade levels. Also my child is using Beestar and she has been doing better in maths.

It's wonderful to hear about your son's enthusiasm for math! To nurture his love for the subject, you might consider exploring resources that focus on conceptual understanding rather than rote memorization. For arithmetic, games, and strategic thinking, you might look into resources that offer hands-on activities and real-world applications to make learning more engaging.

Books like "The Number Devil" by Hans Magnus Enzensberger or "Math Curse" by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith can make math fun and relatable. Online resources such as Khan Academy, Mathletics, or Prodigy Math Game offer interactive lessons and games tailored to different levels of math proficiency.

For parents seeking to understand their child's math needs better, books like "Math-terpieces: The Art of Problem-Solving" by Greg Tang or "Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail" by Danica McKellar can provide valuable insights and strategies for supporting your child's math education.
