Oxford First Maths Dictionary by Peter Patilla

The Oxford First Maths Dictionary gives your child a head start in understanding the first maths concepts that they will encounter in their early years at school. Organised alphabetically, it gives simple and clear meanings for over 300 maths words and concepts, from 'add' to 'zero'. Each entry is illustrated with child-friendly artwork, diagrams or fun characters to fully explain and add meaning and support to the definition. Expertly-levelled supplementary material in an illustrated section at the back lists the everyday vocabulary children will come across in their maths lessons - topics included are days of the week, months of the year, numbers and apparatus used in class.


[this book] makes you want to read the definitions, such as 'none'... I finally discovered what a Venn diagram is. Not just for school this might tempt the anti-maths brigade to change their mind Newbury Weekly News
