Parents Making Homeschooling Fun

As school lessons and classes went online to cope with the pandemic, parents - many with deep, newfound respect for their children’s teachers - took on the task of homeschooling their children. Many had to get creative with their lessons and teaching methods, but one parent, Gregory Dennis, went as far as inventing a Mathematics board game for his 11-year old son, to make the subject more fun and enjoyable to learn. The game, called Math-Ace, is meant for children aged eight to 12, and we speak to Greg about the challenges of homeschooling his children, while discussing his other plans to make learning maths more accessible and fun for all.
