Help Your Kids With Maths

Are your children struggling with their maths homework? Are you finding it challenging to understand what they're being taught? You're certainly not alone!

Most jobs don't involve trigonometry on a day to day basis and you can be forgiven for being rusty with your ratios. Thankfully, there's a superb book that's written for this very (common) problem!

Introducing Carol Vorderman's Help Your Kids With Maths. This fantastic book is the perfect parental support if you're finding it difficult to remember about multiplying fractions, Pythagoras, or anything about those pesky circles!

The book covers all the core subjects your child will encounter, from basic arithmetic to simultanius equations, and is what every fustrated parent needs. The easy to understand, colourful diagrams, and step by step instructions make maths a breeze.

 

 

* Please note that this book (or pack of books) is fully updated to the new curriculum that began in 2014 (for Years 1-5 and 7-9) and 2015 for Year 6.

Just what you need as a parent; and just what your kids need. If your maths is rusty this is the crib book you need to help your kids with homework. If you never did maths it's pretty helpful too as the explanation- particularly in the algebra department are clear and easy to understand. If the book has a fault, it's that it tries to cover a lot of ground in a slim volume. I don't see that as a fault because most people's faces fall and their eyes glaze over at the usual "helpful" stuff. This book walks you through the problem in clear steps that use the colour effectively without the usual patronising stuff you find in some similar publications. Thoroughly recommended by a 59 year old bloke who did his Maths GCSE last year for the first time.

Excellent product

Reagan(04/07/2015)

Excellent value for money exactly what my daughter needed prior to exams. Highly recommend as my children found it very useful for preparation for exams

Tonya(25/06/2015)

5/5

Nice and clear but stops short of GCSE higher (A/A*) content which is disappointing as the explanations are very clear and well explained

Karmen(21/06/2015)

5/5

Very engaging style. Content is good, though would benefit from a question review section to reinforce the ideas. Goes from very basics through to some quite complex topics. Great help for a son who is struggling with basic maths. gave me ideas on how to help him.

Gino(19/06/2015)

5/5

My son has not put this down since receiving this book, reads it in bed takes it to school, so easy to follow. I am even enjoying going over the maths I found hard to understand. Very well illustrated recommend

Chantal(16/06/2015)

5/5

Even I had never had any problems with maths myself, after I read that book I much better understand it and its easier for me to explain it to my son (my English is another story ;o)). I always had to memorize formulas in my school but now I better understand them. Pictures are colourful and explanation are taken from life.

Augustine(14/06/2015)

Brilliant help for age 12+

Kendall(11/06/2015)

looks great have not needed to use it yet but I am sure I will need it sooner or later and will help enormously with homework.

Mikel(09/06/2015)

5/5

Having bought nearly all of these types of books on the market(!) this is by far the most useful and easy to follow. A godsend if you are struggling to help your children with their homework and finding like me that you are a bit out of date with the way they teach maths in school these days.

Brandon(07/06/2015)

5/5

this new book has been such a great help with teenagers who find other maths books too daunting and meaty. The explanations are easy to grasp and logical, not too much jumping around and each example builds on the previous one. I even benefitted myself from learning some little tricks to speed up my sums in the office! Good images and diagrams and a very reasonable price. Most kids would not mind this as a present from Granny for birthday or Christmas!

Jamal(07/06/2015)

5/5

This book is fun and very detailed. The colours are attractive and eye catching for young children. Illustrations are easy to follow and easy to teach as well, when helping young children. I like the book and highly recommend it to parents who want to help their children with Maths.

excellent value for money item is as described item arrived on time. arrived very quickly

Deedra(31/05/2015)

5/5

Fantastic book for learning/improving your maths, this is actually for me (adult) to help with my studies for GCSE, however, will is a great book for help with your children's homework, this book is a very visual way/method for learning.

Lala(31/05/2015)

5/5

I found this really easy to understand and my children enjoyed reading it also.

Rebbeca(29/05/2015)

I purchased this book so I had a better understanding of how my daughter (who's 10 and in year 6 )was taught mathematics .I think it's great ! I've learnt so much and feel so much more confident .

Shery(27/05/2015)

5/5

Great book, really easy to find what you are looking for. Explained very clearly with great diagrams for you and your child. Simple explanations and not too much detail. Very useful for my 12 and 14 year old (and me).

Loren(27/05/2015)

5/5

Fantastic book to use to help students in my homework club to understand homework topics. Good graphics and explanations make it easy to use.

Suzanne(29/08/2015)

4/5

Good easy to read text...better than others I looked at.

Roxy(14/08/2015)

4/5

It is a very well organised and illustrated text book; a very good source of reference for young learners. Unfortunately, it does not have additional exercises to reinforce the learning. My son uses it to expand what he has learned at school and as an additional support when tackling his homework.

Haley(09/08/2015)

4/5

The general tone of the book is pretty good, and its coverage is also quite good. The earlier comment on use of the 'borrowing' term by the teacher is irrelevant, as the process and meaning of subtraction rather than the mere terminology is what is taught (and a teacher should know this). One might as well demand that students use correct terms such as 'subtrahend' and 'diminuend'. However, although it covers a good deal, it lacked some topics which I would have expected. For instance, the concept of sets was not dealt with at all (union, intersection, empty set), even though it would provide a footing for several other topics which were included. Also, while some topics were dealt with in good enough detail (basic arithmetic, geometry), others were a bit skimpy. For instance, powers of numbers were sketchily handled. Logarithms would have been too much to hope for.

Nickolas(02/08/2015)

I learnt a lot not taught at school

Wynona(05/07/2015)

Very good book with loads of knowledge my 12yrold son likes it, I won't say love because maths is not his favourite subject.

Kandace(02/07/2015)

Royal(01/07/2015)

Starts off very simply and works he way through getting harder Would recommend I could help my Grandchildren Very Good

Raeann(25/06/2015)

4/5

Very clear and good book with great illustrations. Wish we had books like this when I was young, maths would have been easier to learn.

Nancey(19/06/2015)

4/5

An excellent book, which is beautifully illustrated and designed. It's a shame that it does not cover all the GCSE Higher Level, so I had to return it unfortunately. The bonding of the book is excellent, very strong cover and pages are properly stitched so could be opened flat on your desk without falling apart. It should be adequate though for foundation level.

Saturnina(12/06/2015)

4/5

As a Maths teacher I thought this book looked great with beautifully clear graphics. However, having read through the first section which covers Number I've already picked up some errors: Page 16: Adding large numbers gives an example of 'carrying'. Schools place enormous emphasis on correctly identifying place value and in the example quoted the 1 to be carried is actually a 10. Page 17: Subtracting large numbers, the term 'borrow' is used. This went out of favour literally years ago as to borrow is to imply that something is paid back, which is not the case and was therefore considered confusing. The method shown in the example is sound, only the use of the word 'borrow' is not. Finally on page 39 Short division with decimals, an example is shown of 6 being divided by 8. The description underneath states that here, short division was used to find the decimal answer for the sum 8 divided by 6. Whilst this last point is perhaps a typographical error, the first two are really quite important and would almost certainly be considered by schools to be bad practice. As stated in the book's Foreword, new methods of arithmetic have been introduced since many parents were themselves taught and this book aims to guide parents through some of these methods. Clearly, in the above examples it is simply re-enforcing old and outdated values which would conflict with current thinking. I do hope this is not indicative of the rest of the book, which is colourful, eye-catching and appears clearly to set out many concepts which both children and adults would find extremely useful.

Bethel(29/05/2015)

4/5

good set out well helpful to dyslexics

Omega(02/08/2015)

3/5

This isn't a bad guide however I found the pages were way too visually busy and over complicated to much so it has put me off the rest of the book and I am going to see an alternative....

Ernest(18/07/2015)

3/5

A good basic book more useful for teaching under 10 year old as the visual aids help the children grasp the concept more easily. For adults it's a good refresher or reference book. It would be helpful if there were excercises that the child could do to help self learning as well. Otherwise good book.

Bethann(17/07/2015)

3/5

Good reference book for parents, however, I do not feel that the explanations and working examples go far enough. To be a five star, this book needs to provide full worked examples so parents can easily follow the logic behind each discipline and are left in no doubt as to how the author came to the final answer.
