When life is busy, it isn't always possible to sit down with your child and help them get to grips with important maths skills like multiplication, fractions and general problem solving.  In this highly engaging talk - in which children will get a chance to volunteer - author Rob Eastaway offers a range of simple tips and games that you can try anywhere, any time. Find out how to make the most of time spent in the car, at the shops, at the breakfast table and elsewhere.

This event is suitable for parents, grandparents and children over eight.
