4.0 out of 5 stars Wise words, 30 Jun. 2011
This review is from: What Can I Do to Help My Child with Math When I Don't Know Any Myself? (Paperback)
As a science teacher I often despair at the maths skills of my students - if parents were able to access this book and apply some of the simple tips in here their children would benefit not just maths, but another curriculum area too!

This book is written in a conversational style with plenty of anecdotes to hold interest, yet has a proper message and some excellent advice for parents. I have to agree with other reviewers that older children and teachers would also benefit from reading and absorbing the information given.

I particularly liked the revision and exam sections, as someone who notoriously flunked major exams (even my maths A-level...) I think I would have done much better if I'd had this advice before I started. If you are thinking about getting a tutor to help your child, then this book will help you assess whether you need to spend your money or can save it by supporting their learning in different ways - that has to be money well spent and saved!

Although the book is written for the American market, it translates easily into 'UK speak' and the language of maths (in the crib sheet section of the second half) is universal.
