Fun maths at home!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maths Age 9-10 (Letts Mythical Maths) (Paperback)
I bought this book for my 10 year old son (along with the Enchanted English book) when he was close to the end of year 5. There were about 16 double page spreads of work to complete. Most began by introducing a concept (e.g. the box method for long multiplication) then there were a series of questions to do, but not so many it became boring! From a parent's point of view it was interesting to see how much my son could do and also to see what he hadn't been taught in school which we could then catch up with. If he hadn't already known the majority of the material, it would have been hard to learn it just using this book and he would probably have got rather demoralised (and I would have got rather worried!), but it was good for some revision, for making maths fun and learning a few new ideas.
