A me la cosa non tocca ancora, visto che i miei gemelli sono ancora duenni: ma sono davvero tanti i genitori che si trovano da fare i compiti dei loro figli, e magari scoprono di non saperli fare. La matematica è già una brutta bestia per tanti: peggio ancora, a quanto pare i metodi che usavamo ai nostri tempi sono cambiati. Ecco dunque questo libro che racconta ai genitori cosa c'è dietro i metodi attuali. O almeno cosa c'è nei programmi britannici, non so quanto la cosa valga per le nostre cla ...more

This is a great book.
Maths was and will never be my strong point but now I am supporting a year 3 class and have a 7 and 5 year old I got this book for reference. It's brilliant.
I was at school in the 80's and this book explains how we were taught and how and why children are now taught.
There are little activities to do through out the chapters and a test at the end.
My only niggle is it doesn't give you the answers to the chapter activities.

A very clear and entertaining account of modern maths teaching for primary school children, with lots of maths games to play. I did pretty well on the tests for parents at the end, though not perfect. I read it chiefly as background to the OU course I am doing in May on The Stroy fo Maths, though that will be more historical. I still learnt quite a lot from this book.

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!
