    Invaluable Resource for Parents

    If you are like most parents in their late thirties and forties and you can't remember the math you learned in middle school and high school, this is an invaluable resource when your child asks you for help with his or her math homework. Can remember how to solve a problem with negative exponents? Look up 'Exponent' under 'E,' and there is the answer.

    Math's Martha Stewart (Only Fun!)

    Introduced to this by a friend, I'm someone who barely passed geometry. I'm simply bad when it comes to numbers. If only this book had been around when I was back in school. Any parent and their child could be helped by Brita Imergutt's approach to math. She clearly loves her subject and makes it fun to learn. A time to enjoy rather than to be frustrated. Terrific teacher. If this book were about cooking, the author would be the star of the Food Channel. Somehow she makes math equally tasty.
