    To help explain methods, Sulas! Like a revision study guide!!! What is so confusing about that?!

    It's far more difficult to teach your own child than a whole class ...simple law of being a parent [​IMG]

    But at 11, isn't it good practise for a child to get on with their work without constant parent supervision? It's good prep for secondary school. If they get stuck, they then have a book that explains the method to them. No offence taken.

    I would suggest the Target Maths books as there is three levels of differentiation and so she could do the easier bit if she felt she wanted to. Medal Maths is similar and looks a bit more child friendly as well.

    But you are highly unlikely to find a book that teaches the exact same methods and principles that her school uses. You will need to sometimes explain some of it to her and sit with her to help her.

    Does her school have a parent leaflet? You could ask for that.

    I honestly think you should do things like play scrabble (make her scorer) and monopoly (make her banker as well as playing) rather than buying her a book though.
