    First Published in 2003. This book offers practical advice to those students of maths who don’t understand it and don’t like it. The author asks ‘So what shall we do about it?’ This is what makes her books so helpful; they give parents and teachers practical ideas they can use. First addressing the question of the types of difficulty encountered, she then moves on to overcoming the difficulty.
