It’s helping *me* help my daughter with her maths
I’m part way through this ebook, and I’m actually enjoying the course. It uses real life examples and helps to make maths less complicated and even fun. There’s a sense of humour threaded through the narrative,
I now understand minus numbers after a great example - and, more to the point, so does my daughter. It’s written conversationally, making the whole subject less daunting.
Compared to my daughter’s GCSE text books - which can look overwhelming, I really like the style of Money Stuff with lots of photographs, illustrations and tips throughout.
Money is a feminist issue!
It is so important for everybody, but especially girls, to have good mathermatical skills. Money Stuff offers a fantastic way of teaching maths so that it is relevant to real life situations. We often young people complain that algebra and fractions cannot be of any use in real life, but Money Stuff uses different scenarios to demonstrate how these things are a necessary part of the everyday.
