As an ex-Maths teacher, I found this book delightful. I liked the presentation style and the method of teaching. I even found new mathematical insights!

Mike Montgomery, you rock!

Thank you Mike, recommend this book for all parents. Helps greatly with assisting young minds to understand and us as parents to explain the concept of fractions.

As a parent I struggle to help my 12 year old son with his Maths especially the fractions. Fractions for parents is a understandable, easy read and has helped me to help my son grasp the concept of fractions. Thank you Mike for helping to make our lives a little easier when it comes to fractions and helping our kids.

Between Life, work and family it is hard enough to try to keep up with everything our kids are learning. Maths is not as easy when you haven’t done it such a long time. Having read the book and experienced first had the simple explanation, there is hope for both parent and child in understanding fractions better.

I speak as a long time friend, classmate and probably the first person Mike had to tutor regularly! I had a pretty good grasp of Math, but Mike always had a way of making one understand things better. His skill at making things crystal clear and going to great extents to simplify complex concepts are very clearly illustrated in this book. This book is well thought out and easy to follow. An excellent resource for parents and students alike. It was refreshing to learn new ways of seeing these very basic concepts that are such important building blocks for understanding the more complex in such a systematic, fun and novel way !

Congratulations Mike!!!

Wishing you and your students great success and looking forward to your books on other Math subjects..

Last year my daughter was doing Grade 4. She was coming from a different curriculum, a different school and a different country altogether. Of all the adjustment issues, Maths proved to be our hardest. When we came across Fractions for parents, I knew that it was an answered prayer. This to date has been our best buy! That term he Maths mark went up by a whooping 15%. I highly recommend this book. It gave me the support that I need as a parent to explain concepts that I don’t remember from school. My daughter is now confident in tackling all these “hard” sums!

I have been fortunate to have read this book. With my strong mathematical background, this has given me insight into how I could easily bring the understanding to my kids. I was amazed as to the simplicity with which the concepts are explained and the solid foundation it provides for the student who will be able to take it with him/her further. I can really attest to the authors love of mathematics, and I hope that this book instills the confidence in our younger generation to see how easy it really is. Having tutored mathematics myself, I have experienced the difficulties teachers encounter. Each student is unique and not all students understand only 1 explanation. However, as a parent this book gives better insight to fractions as no parent has been exposed too and will equip the parent to assist their own kids. I am proud to say, that I used this book with my kids, then in grade 5 & 6. Now, they are equipped with a solid foundation of fractions which will help them in later grades. This book is definitely a worthwhile investment.

This book is so awesome! It really helped me as I struggled with the concept of fractions! Its so simple to understand and so educational and allows me to understand how to explain fractions to my two boys (2 & 5 – more explaining it to him)!

Thank You Mike!

May God Continue To Bless You!

I have used the book for grade 6 as well as grade 8 and 9 students. The book has helped me understand the fractions and in doing so, I can confidently explain fractions to the students. I found the book to be very easy to use with practical examples which makes it a fun session for both “teacher” and student. I would recommend the book for teachers especially in primary schools.

Fractions for Parents is a worthwhile book to invest in for teachers and parents. It is an easy read and has practical and simple examples to assist one in understanding all areas of fractions.

I enjoyed reading this book of notes and guidelines on how to help my son with his fractions. It is easy to understand and makes it alot easier to explain to my son. Now that I have a clearer understanding of what fractions are really all about, I look forward to helping with maths homework!

I highly recommend that more parents and teachers read this book to get a better understanding of fractions and that it is not as daunting as many make it out to be.

A good book to encourage young alert minds. A must have for parents and teachers too.
