Reviews

  • "An insightful and engaging book perfect for those parents who want to get to grips with the sort of maths their child will encounter during their teenage years."

    Rachel Greenhalgh, Director UK Mathematics Trust
  • "Parents’ support and encouragement is vital if young people are going to develop a positive attitude to maths. This book not only explains to parents what teenagers need to know – with an emphasis on problem-solving and developing a genuine feel for numbers – but it also has useful tips on keeping them switched on to maths. And it makes it clear how damaging idle remarks about being ‘no good at maths’ can be. Every parent with a child at secondary school should read it!"

    Mike Ellicock, Chief Executive National Numeracy
  • "A unique contribution to the campaign to make maths engaging. It really ‘talks' to the parents, takes their point of view and then builds on this to provide grounded, practical examples of what might work for them."

    Professor Celia Hoyles, OBE
