Rosemary Russell is a Secondary Maths Teacher and has been awarded a PhD for her work on parents helping their children with maths.
"In refreshingly jargon-free style, Help Your Child with Numeracy
Ages 7-11, explains the major mathematical ideas now taught.
Parents baffled by children coming home and talking about 'empty
number lines' or doing calculations differently to how they were
taught should find this book helpful in demystifying school
mathematics. This book will support parents in having meaningful
conversations about maths with their children and so may help make
learning numeracy more enjoyable for all."
