This review is from: Maths: A Book You Can Count On (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am pretty good at maths - I'm an accountant - but I struggle to explain the concepts to others. This book does a great job. Although mainly of benefit to secondary school children (and upwards), it also contains some concepts which will be helpful to primary children (age 10 up I'd say). Each mathematical term is well explained and understandable. The pictures and the text are sometimes a bit gimmicky, but I think the book makes a great contribution to explaining mathematical terms to the numerically challenged. It's not quite as good at the book on Punctuation in the series (I haven't seen the other books in this series), but it is still very useful.
