"Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew’s book is a massive step in making maths more fun and comprehensible for mums and dads. It will help to banish the lament that 'I was never any good at maths at school.'"--Sir Peter Williams, Chancellor of the University of Leicester
"Sometimes you come across a book which makes you happy. Recently, I did just that . . . [ Maths for Mums and Dads] is brilliant, and exactly what far too many parents (including myself) need."--Sarah Ebner, The Times
"This book is an absolute triumph. Given the authors’ reputations, I would expect nothing less."--Liz Woodham, Primary Maths Journal

What the authors do in this book is to make mathematics understandable. They do this by not just focusing on the procedures used but also, and more importantly, on developing an understanding of the subject. It is a book that I would fully recommend.
I hope you find my review helpful.
Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it is not easy to navigate the Kindle version, as there are not always links to the answers for some of the "test yourself" questions and it's hard to refer back to earlier sections when required. I am buying this book in paper format as a result, as it is otherwise a very useful aid for my work as an adult education tutor.
My copy arrived sooner than expected in far better condition than expected considering the price I paid,
