gg

It is little wonder that many people that were born in the 1950’s and 60’s look at computers as if they are machinery beamed down from an alien spaceship. Let’s remember that this generation can probably think back to a time before there was even a television in their homes as children. At their peak age for learning, the most complicated technology available to them, the television, was operated by a button to switch it on and three buttons that selected the channels. Younger generations that have grown up with evolving technology find its operations to be second nature.

Popular Gadgets To Improve Your Child’s Mathematical Skills

png;base64bbf6f00157f89fab

I don’t know about you, but maths has always been quite an interesting subject to learn at school. At times, I did find my maths lessons boring, but I think that was probably due to some of the other kids ‘playing up’ in the classroom and making some of my maths lessons less than interesting.

Back in the age of dinosaurs when I was at school and learning about the weird and wonderful world of maths, I had to do everything on paper.
