Product description

Review

"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

"This book will take the terror out of maths for all the generations."--Joanna Trollope

"This delightful little book is perfect for parents who want to understand the different methods to do arithmetic their children are learning -- and why they are being taught that way. The authors' easy going style and humor should help ease the path for parents for whom mathematics brings feelings of dread."--Keith Devlin, Stanford University, author of The Math Gene and Mathematics Education for a New Era: Video Games as a Medium for Learning, and NPR's "Math Guy".
