A lot of this book is about more general study skills than specific Math skills, but I found lots of useful tips in it.
For instance I enjoyed the section about the difference between passive and active memory.
There is also a crib sheet for adults about all the Math concepts your child will cover if you need to brush up yourself.

Yet another great book by Mary and Tom Poppendieck. It follows on from their first 2 books, introducing more principles of lean software management.
This is a book for anyone managing a software team, dept or company. I'm sure the book will generate some good ideas and insights for your team, no matter who you work for.
For example, the book discusses Failure Demand ( the amount of time you spend doing things because the system doesn't work well - ie answering support calls and fixing bugs ).
As always this stuff seems obvious once it's been pointed out - but it isn't obvious.

Steve and Nat walk you though a non-trivial example over many chapters which allows you to see how they think and how they write code.
Of course they use evolutionary design. So if you haven't got much experience with evolutionary design this book will show you how it works in practice.
TDD has improved and evolved over the years, making many of the earlier books… Read more
