Professor Amanda Kirby (UK) on Amazon:

“This is an easy read guide to help and support for people with maths difficulties. It reminded me how much we take for granted and how we need to ensure the foundation skills are in place to be able to become more confident. Well done”

Dr. Liz Matheis on Amazon:

“The Math Handbook by Helmy Faber reviews many math topics at the elementary school. As a parent and Educational Psychologist, this book has helped me to understand how students make visual associations with math skills without rote repetition and memorization.

The pages at the end of the book are a great place for students to take notes. Being able to refer back to the different lessons can potentially help to lessen anxiety about forgetting how to solve a problem or a math fact. The ultimate goal is to increase a child’s confidence in mathematics, and this book can help your child to do just that”!

Amazon reader:

”I was very impressed with The Math Handbook. Each topic has a lucid explanation and sufficient examples suitable for anyone struggling with math. Overall, excellent content and would highly recommend this book to anyone facing challenges in mathematics”.

Professor Steve Chinn (UK):

“Your book (Dyscalculia and Math Difficulties in Singapore 2014) duly arrived and I have read it. I really like its structure. The case studies, of course, give it life and reality and will reassure parents and students that they are not alone in their problems.

There is a good mix of research content, with many useful references for people to follow up, and helpful, pragmatic tips.

It is also good that it is targeted at Singapore (though much of the content is globally pertinent), again for parents who live in such a culture where success in maths is assumed.

I wish you every, deserved, success with the book”.

“I received your Maths Reference Book (2013) last week.

I think your graphics are excellent. They are clear, uncluttered, directly related to the maths symbols and appropriate to the concept covered. You do treat the maths conceptually rather than solely by rote. This is commendable.

The book is succinct, so it is not overwhelming for a hesitant learner. It will act as a quick, highly available resource for children who need their memories refreshing”.

“My daughter finds your book handy and easy to navigate. The contents are well covered and thorough. Thank you”. Mrs. N.

“We used your book this weekend and it was a big help for my son, so happy we got it, thanks again!” Mrs. M.

“It is a very comprehensive book. It even gave us a few different ideas on how to explain certain math problems. The book really explains all the different math operations in clear and concise ways, and in particular we liked the colour schemes you used. Also the tables are very clear. A very good book.” Mrs. S.

“This book is very helpful for me to use during math class. I think that fractions is quite hard and this book was very useful, because I can refer to the diagrams and examples when I forget something and when I am doing my homework.” M.S.

“A great reference tool.” Ms. W.

“If I forget how to do my math, I use the book to look it up. I like it that it is in color.” J.M.
