Review: Simply math

Title: Simply Math
Author: Ron Berry

Reviewed by Jo Linsdell.

Can maths be fun? Ron Berry aims to prove it can be done whilst taking you through the skills needed to solve mathematical problems and show what and how various operations work.
He starts by giving some history of maths and answers questions like “Why do we even have numbers?” and “What the heck do we need algebra for?”
He goes on to cover everything from basic addition and subtraction to algebra and geometry.
Examples used throughout are simple and clear, making each operation easy to understand.
Complete with appendixes, glossary and index for quick and simple reference, Simple Maths may not have you jumping for the joys of arithmetic but it does break things down and make them easier to understand and use.
A useful tool for older children who may be overwhelmed and confused by what they are being taught in school but also a nice refresher for those of us who did what was needed to pass our exams and them promptly left the most part behind us when we entered the ‘real’ or ‘grown-up’ world.
