9780099540021: Homework for Grown-ups: Everything You Learnt at School... and Promptly Forgot

Don't know your isosceles from your equilateral?

Forgotten what actually happened in 1066?

Perplexed by past participles?

Bewildered already?

Fret no longer. Swot up with Homework for Grown-Ups - a brilliantly informative and entertaining book of old-school knowledge for adults.

It covers everything from algebra and prime numbers, English grammar and the Big Bang theory, and an easy way to remember the order of the planets and Britain's kings and queens, to art, Latin, P.E., home economics, and much more. Packed with essential facts, figures and theories, along with fun but challenging test papers to keep you on your toes, it might just equip parents to handle their child's homework without humiliation.
