Hi Andy

I think i need to know a bit more what her problem is but its my thing to work with kids who apparently cant do maths - most of them can its just the way they have been taught ...

I like? Mike's stuff ( he is one of my EdD supervisors) but it is primary stuff mostly but good to work with - if your friends wants me to he can contact me and i can try and talk to his daughter over email and than maybe send him some of my material and that of others to work with ..

Hi Andy,?
Mike Askew is one of the best here in the UK :
Not being specifically a Maths teacher I m not that familiar with his writing.?
Why not write to him and ask what your brother should read??
