Children's LiteratureThe chatty introduction to this teaching aid for parents delivers comforting council to parents with a weakness for mathematics. Nowadays, most modern mathematics textbooks in the elementary school systems have preprinted messages for parents about the concepts being taught each week and most students bring home these weekly mathematics letters to their parents. Nevertheless, there may still be some parents in need of additional mathematical support; this book takes them through the terms they should know and explains the concepts in clear language. The book covers place value calculations of whole numbers, fractions, averages, integers, exponents, scientific notation, roots, geometry, and measurements. The back matter contains templates for division and multiplication flash cards. There is no glossary or index that might have been helpful for finding references quickly. This book is part of Wiley Publishing's "CliffsNotes' Parent's Crash Course" series, which includes the titles Elementary School Science Fair Projects and Elementary School Math. 2005, Wiley Publishers, Ages 7 to 11.
