Product Description

Review

On the Chambers Adult Learners' range:

An excellent range of reference books from the respected publishers Chambers for adult learners and adults with dyslexia.

These books are not just a re-hash of standard works, they have been developed specifically to meet the needs of the target audience. Chambers have clearly acted on advice received from the British Dyslexia Association and, for the large print books, also the RNIB.

The books are very accessible and clearly laid out and should prove popular with anyone who finds a typical dictionary or thesaurus rather impenetrable.

A respectful, sensible book dealing

with everyday

Maths... excellent.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A few years ago I gave a review of the first edition of this book, which at the time of writing this review is still available.
The new edition is smaller than the original, with a plain no-frills style cover. I have to say I preferred the original, which fitted in with the other Chambers Skills for Life books.

A smaller book means the font size is also smaller, which isn't so good if you have any degree of visual impairment. If you are giving this to someone who is nervous about Maths and is looking for an excuse not to do it, 'the print is too small' may give them the excuse they need.

Here's my original review, slightly edited to reflect my thoughts on the new book and the fact that other books have appeared on the market since it was written.

I bought this as I am an adult literacy and numeracy tutor and wanted a book I could recommend for extra home study to my students - this is an excellent choice.
Starting from scratch, the book gives clear, practical examples of numeracy problems and takes the student through them step by step.

The book contains lots of interesting facts that makes numeracy come alive for the student- if you've ever wondered why zero Fahrenheit is so far below zero Celsius, this book gives a possible explanation.

Plenty of examples are given in the areas learners seem to find most challenging- for example, how to calculate ratios and metric conversions.
The book is broken down into easy to find, meaningful sections that broadly map to the Adult Numeracy curriculum, starting with whole numbers and ending with data. Illustrations are plentiful, generally clear and helpful although the small print size means that you may sometimes strain to read the labelling on diagrams, for example.

As a mature student positives of this book are that it was easy reading down to the basics, facts and clear explanations. on the negative the wording was small and handling the book you definitely need a bookmark. Overall a good edition to assist adult learners in numeracy

So pleased I bought this guide, I've had a fear of Mathis for years and never really got to grips with it at all, I'm slowly going through the book in my own time, no pressure to get things right!!!

A good guide for adult numeracy learners and their tutors.

Basic numeracy skills are now a requirement across a variety of learning environments.
