Book Description

14 Feb 2013

In their first, bestselling, book Maths for Mums and Dads Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew helped you and your child make sense of the new methods and topics covered in primary school maths.

But as your child embarks on secondary school, two new issues arise. First, in the build-up to GCSE, school children begin to do maths that you probably have never encountered before - or if you have, you never really got it in the first place, and have long since forgotten. Factorising? Finding the locus?Solving for x? Probability distributions? What do these even mean?

More Maths for Mums and Dads gives you all the ammunition to help you to help your teenager get to grips with and feel more confident about - and hopefully even enjoy - GCSE maths. It covers in straightforward and easy-to-follow terms the maths your child will encounter in the build up to GCSE, in many cases gives practical and fun examples of where the maths crops up in the real world. In addition, the authors introduce the notion of estimation and coin a new term, Zequals. Using the Zequals method will help develop your teenager's feel for numbers, which in turn could transform their experience and enjoyment of everyday maths.

Product Description

Review

"An insightful and engaging book perfect for those parents who want to get to grips with the sort of maths their child will encounter during their teenage years." (Rachel Greenhalgh, Director UK Mathematics Trust)

"Parents' support and encouragement is vital if young people are going to develop a positive attitude to maths. This book not only explains to parents what teenagers need to know - with an emphasis on problem-solving and developing a genuine feel for numbers - but it also has useful tips on keeping them switched on to maths. And it makes it clear how damaging idle remarks about being 'no good at maths' can be. Every parent with a child at secondary school should read it!" (Mike Ellicock, Chief Executive National Numeracy)

"A unique contribution to the campaign to make maths engaging. It really 'talks' to the parents, takes their point of view and then builds on this to provide grounded, practical examples of what might work for them." (Professor Celia Hoyles, OBE)

Book Description

A brilliant book to guide mums, dads, grandparents and carers through the troubled waters of GCSE maths - and to help you to help your teenager to feel confident and even enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 30 May 2013
By Moose Papoose VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son is in Year 7 at grammar school. The step up from primary school was a big one and this book has been very helpful in steering a course through his maths homework. I was useless at maths at school, so it's a big boost for parents like me. I even sound authoritative, like I actually know something about algebra!

Maths in school changes so quickly the previous generation has been left behind, or does it differently. So the book really helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these books 5 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Might not quite cover everything, but if you're a bit rusty as most of us are, or unfamiliar with modern methods, which you almost certainly are, they provide a great rapid refresher/insight for those frustrating homework moments. Already caught up on quadratic factorising and Sin Cos Tan formulae.

Maths for Mums and Dads and now More Maths for Mums and Dads are essential parent reference; and approachable.
