I was the worst kid in school for Math. It was not my subject, an I hated every thing about it, I even failed it in Grade 9 and had to do it again. I just couldn't get things like Algebra.
My thinking starting this book was, if it can teach me, it can teach anyone.
The best thing is, I learned.
Algebra is touched on in this book, and in the manner in what given, I was able to understand it for the first time in my life. DK simplified it enough for my brain to absorb it.
That was something!

Publicado no Brasil pela publifolha com o título "Matemática para Pais e Filhos" foi um presente para meus guris. Claro, bem escrito e bem ilustrado, se tornou uma fonte constante de consulta de conceitos.

If you just need a REFRESHER, then this book might well help you. If you and your kids never understood math, than leave this pn the shelf and look elsewhere!

Oh this is such a great and useful book. Practical and enjoyable, yes I am a maths nerd. It explained terms simply with great explanations. Highly recommended.

Excellent book. Came in very handy this school year while helping my kids with math. If they were having trouble understanding the concept I was explaining, this easy to read guide with coloful visual diagrams helped out a lot. The kids could even go through it on their own and find the answers to the questions they were having. Great addition to the home school shelf.

I hated maths but when I read Carol Vordermans' step by step book I was really impressed and I felt really stupid, because I didn't think first about what the question was asking for. Now I read the questions carefully,think and if i have a problem I go to Carol Vordermans' book.

I can't say I've finished this book, but I use it constantly. It's an excellent resource, as well as another book in the series, HELP YOUR KIDS with SCIENCE. This book was written in the UK, so there are minor differences in terminology. Great visuals.

I actually have the Australian version of this book, and it's excellent. It explains all concepts with visuals in easy to understand language. Very useful for teaching and also helping my own kids with homework etc. Would highly recommend (the Australian Version)

Parents. Very visual DK design will make sure you can explain things to your children. I am always paranoid that I am going to teach my child the "wrong" way-- since over time the methods and terms can change. Like re-grouping instead of carrying (which is actually NOT addressed in this book).

I like math but have missed some of the shortcuts being taught today. I highly recommend this book to anyone with young kids in school. It will help you understand and explain math concepts.
