Maths anxiety is the worry and tension some people feel when doing, or even just thinking about, maths. It affects 1 in 4 children, and can have a devastating impact on their learning, enjoyment of school and career choices.
Here’s how Town Squared builds confidence and lowers maths anxiety:
Your child is immersed in a beautiful multiplayer world with their friends, where maths concepts and financial literacy learning are seamlessly interwoven throughout gameplay.
Children help the local community by applying their maths skills to keep the town running, being rewarded with exciting quests that they can play with friends - giving them more reasons to keep trying. Often, they won’t realise they’re actively engaging with maths concepts as they’re presented in a natural context, so they can enjoy the experience. As they progress the tasks get more difficult, keeping their motivation high and challenging them to improve.
Town Squared has been developed in collaboration with maths educational experts and leading psychological researchers.
You are part of your child's progress loop.
We provide you with resources to encourage your child’s interests, and ways to acknowledge their improvements and manage their unique challenges.
Our portal also provides expert advice for children to overcome developmental sticking points, and the simple things you can do at home to help - without needing to be a maths expert yourself.
Together you can change a conversation about maths from one of fear, to one of curiosity and collaboration. This increases enjoyment and reduces anxiety.
And this attitude accompanies your child back to the classroom.
