Chambers Adult Learners' Guide to Numeracy

Paperback / ISBN-13: 9780550102171

Price: £14.99

This new edition of Chambers Adult Learners’ Guide to Numeracy is aimed at adults who lack confidence in their numeracy skills, now in a new, more accessible format. The book provides users with an understanding of the key concepts and methods, then applies them in real-world situations such as calculating distances or working out interest payments. The text is clearly and spaciously laid out, and plentiful examples, diagrams, and exercises reinforce all the learning points.

The book is based around the ‘Skills for Life’ numeracy curriculum created by the Department for Education and Skills and its author, Geoff Mainwaring, is a highly experienced teacher and lecturer in numeracy.

Reviews

A respectful, sensible book dealing with everyday Maths... excellent.
The Language People, http://www.languagepeople.com.au/archive_pdf/Sep07.pdf
On the Chambers Adult Learners' range: An excellent range of reference books from the respected publishers Chambers for adult learners and adults with dyslexia. These books are not just a re-hash of standard works, they have been developed specifically to meet the needs of the target audience. Chambers have clearly acted on advice received from the British Dyslexia Association and, for the large print books, also the RNIB. The books are very accessible and clearly laid out and should prove popular with anyone who finds a typical dictionary or thesaurus rather impenetrable.
