Count On Norfolk

Maths can be exciting!  There are lots of ways that parents and carers can help children get excited about using maths and numeracy in everyday activities such as cooking, handling money, playing board games, and by talking about times, distances, speed and so on.

Count On Norfolk is our campaign to help families with children aged 0-11 build a really positive attitude towards maths in everyday life.
