# Maths for Mums and Dads

Square Peg, 2010 - Mathematics - 368 pages
'Can you help me with my maths homework?' If, like most parents, this sentence fills you with a sense of dull dread or even panic, then this is the book for you! According to a recent survey, as many as one third of parents are not confident when dealing with the maths homework brought home by their children. At worst, parents worry about getting right even the most simple maths questions. At best, it is a question of modern teaching methods: children are no longer being taught 'the important old-fashioned stuff' or are being taught to do long multiplication in a new-fangled, different way. Guiding parents through the basics of the maths their children are learning today at school, MATHS FOR MUMS AND DADS will cover the dilemmas and problems you are likely to be confronted with up to your child leaving primary school, including: * numbers, decimals and place value * addition and subtraction * long multiplication and long division * times tables and tips on how to remember them * percentages, ratios and fractions * basic geometry, shapes, symmetry and angles * measuring weights and volume Complete with sample questions, mock exam papers and examples of children's errors, MATHS FOR MUMS AND DADS will challenge and reassure in equal measure.

Such a brilliant book, even Year 4/5 mathematics can fox us parents as they have totally changed the methods of teaching it since we all learned. I've found this an invaluable help when the children come to me for homework help and at first glance, I haven't a clue! Read full review
