Abstract

The complex relationship between schools, parents and children surrounding mathematics homework is one that is yet to be fully resolved. In a contribution to reconfiguring mathematics homework, a take-home mathematics games kit focusing on multiplication was trialled with primary school children and their parents. Diary and interview data from nine parent participants showed evidence of parents co-producing meaningful engagement experiences that were differentiated by mathematical complexity, their children’s dispositions and interests, and family routine. The findings suggest that flexible offerings of homework tasks underpinned by a core idea can support parents’ opportunities to engage deeply with their children’s learning.
