Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book will take the terror out of math for all the generations."
Joanna Trollope, bestselling author of The Other Family

"Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew’s book is a massive step in making math more fun and comprehensible for moms and dads. It will help to banish the lament that ‘I was never any good at math at school.'"
Sir Peter Williams, Chancellor of the University of Leicester

"This book is an absolute triumph. Given the author's reputations, I would expect nothing less."
Liz Woodham, Primary Maths Journal

“This delightful little book is perfect for parents who want to understand the different methods to do arithmetic their children are learning—and why they are being taught that way. The authors’ easygoing style and humor should help ease the path for parents for whom mathematics brings feelings of dread.”
Keith Devlin, Stanford University, author of The Math Gene and Mathematics Education for a New Era: Video Games as a Medium for Learning, and NPR’s Math Guy

“Sometimes you come across a book which makes you happy. Recently, I did just that . . . [Old Dogs, New Math] is brilliant, and exactly what far too many parents (including myself) need.”
Sarah Ebner, The Times (London)
