Default Maths for Mums and Dads

For anyone who is thinking their child may return to school at some point or anyone who is folowing the national curriculum, I have just bought a book called Maths for Mums and Dads. It goes through all the current terms used (there were some I had never heard of). It goes through what chidren would be doing in each school year up to the age of 11. It also shows ways of teaching the various concepts to your children.
Just thought this might be of interest to some.

I only just heard about this radio 4 programme More or Less but it still has 3 weeks to run and previous episodes are accessible plus there are articles and video's to watch.
Quote:
The programme explores the use of statistics
Should governments make decisions based on evidence, or instinct? Do the banks sector really contribute almost a quarter of all UK tax? And are ugly people more likely to be criminals?
e.g.-
.
Quote:
More or Less examines the "standardised mortality ratio" which measures unexpected deaths at hospitals. How efficient is it as a a way of detecting trouble?
.
Quote:
The general election result - and the agreement that followed - has put electoral reform firmly on the agenda. Can we use mathematics to make democracy fairer?
etc etc

We've used this website to help with factorising for GCSE maths. We used the video tutorial and the leaflet and found it to be very clear and easy to understand.
