Description

After its publication in 2010, Help Your Kids with Math quickly climbed to the top of DK's bestseller charts. Families were hungry for meaningful math help-not Internet searches and hours of family frustration. The simple, visual approach of Help Your Kids with Math was exactly what parents needed to understand and explain the concepts children use most in grades 3 through 6.

Covering everything from basic arithmetic to the more complex subjects of statistics, geometry, and algebra Help Your Kids with Math uses bright, easy to understand visuals and thoughtful explanations to cut through the confusion. DK's acclaimed designers and editors have taken expert explanations and advice and made them appealing to children-and understandable for parents.

This newly updated edition includes even more content for parents and their children on challenging topics like fractions, times tables, telling time, and Roman numerals.
