Following the death of Prophet Mohammed, the respected status of women granted by the Qur''an has been replaced by a horrible rigid dogma due to interpretations by all men scholars and jurists, most of whom were converts. The result is stories like this. "At the age of 16, I was forced to marry my relative who lives in London. I thought that my dreams were coming true and this man would grant me all that I ever wished for. Since I''ve been here I have been on my own, raising my children by myself. I only meet people he chooses for me to meet and he forbids me from leaving the house by myself. I cry my eyes out and beg for him to allow me to study anything at least English, but he has always refused. I have reached a point where I have begun to hate myself and hate my own children. He makes me wear the full Islamic dress although I already wear a headscarf and have always been decently dressed. Intimacy moments with him last for minutes and I loath them and loath myself when he touches me with no feelings whatsoever. How can I raise my children, when I myself have been deprived of learning? I don''t know what to do or where to go to. And this is what I got from living in Britain.”

But as your child embarks on secondary school, two new issues arise. First, in the build-up to GCSE, school children begin to do maths that you probably have never encountered before – or if you have, you never really got it in the first place, and have long since forgotten. Factorising? Finding the locus?Solving for x? Probability distributions? What do these even mean? More Maths for Mums and Dads gives you all the ammunition to help you to help your teenager get to grips with and feel more confident about – and hopefully even enjoy – GCSE maths. It covers in straightforward and easy-to-follow terms the maths your child will encounter in the build up to GCSE, in many cases gives practical and fun examples of where the maths crops up in the real world. In addition, the authors introduce the notion of estimation and coin a new term, Zequals. Using the Zequals method will help develop your teenager's feel for numbers, which in turn could transform their experience and enjoyment of everyday maths.
This book lays out a year’s worth of exercises meant to get you thinking about maths in a different way. Laing’s approach breaks down her 366 exercises into seven categories, one for each day of the week: Number Sense; Algebra; Geometry; Application; Probability & Statistics; Logic; and Grab Bag. Laing’s approach treats these maths and various number-related logic problems as fun brain exercises. Yes, there are equations here, but nothing that the average adult - even those who always hated maths class - can’t handle. There are also graphs, geometry, statistics and logic problems, many of them centered round problems that could occur in real life. Think of ‘Your Daily Maths’ not as homework, but instead as your daily cognitive workout.

You know me. I am Meredith Gentry, princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of Faerie; one-time private investigator in the mortal world. To be crowned queen, I must continue the royal bloodline - I must produce an heir. To fail would allow my aunt, Queen Andais, do what she most desires: to place her twisted son, Cel, upon the throne of Faerie...and kill me. I am surrounded by loyal guards, my best loved - sworn to protect and to love me - yet for all our eager efforts, I remain childless. My sinister Queen and her confederates conspire against me and so my bodyguards and I have slipped back into Los Angeles. But it seems exile is not enough to escape those with dark designs upon us. King Taranis, vainglorious ruler of Faerie's Seelie court, has accused my guards of a heinous crime and asked the mortal authorities to pursue them. If he succeeds, my men will face a hideous fate. I know Taranis's charges are baseless - for his true target is me. He tried to kill me when I was a child. Now I fear his intentions are far more terrifying...
