    Default Teachers help please!

    I have been asked by my aunty and uncle to tutor my 11 yo cousin in maths as I always did well in maths.
    Anyways she is in grade 6 (Vic) and my friend who is a teacher suggested times tables angles and division. Any other suggestions? And are there any good rescources on the web and do you have any suggestions for activities? TIA

    Can you talk to her teacher and see what she is studying and what she needs help with?

    Study ladder is great and free. U just have to sign up. It's linked to the curriculum too and has higher and lower activities.

    Go to the Australian curriculum website and it's all on there for you. The year 6 curriculum is huge, so I would narrow it down to where she struggles and go from there. If she doesn't know her tables well she won't be able to do learn a lot of the new concepts.

    This gives a snap shot of what students do in maths. See under the grade 6 section. I would find out what she's doing in class and ask the teacher where you found specifically focus.
