hi I'm 28 with 3 children recently gone back into education doing and access course to move on to uni to become a midwife I have been out of education for at least 8 yrs and my mind seems to have gone blank. I am taking maths and its just seems I have forgot all the tips and tricks I knew and loads I'm learning that my teachers at high school never taught me at all ( to busy drinking coffee and asking pupils to watch the class while they smoked cigarettes out eh window). to be honest I am finding the maths so difficult its making me feel so stupid its untrue I wish I had paid more attention at school and that I actually made a complaint about the way the teacher was behaving in the classroom. please can some one help me.

To learn maths, you need to be solving maths problems, so I would suggest that you get some kind of workbook series, turn to page 1, and start solving the problems. When you get stuck, come here and ask for help.
There are various different workbook publishers, so it's probably best to go to WH Smiths or Waterstones or similar and have a look for a series that you like the look of, and that covers a good range of material.
You may find that you progress through the elementary stuff quickly, so you should look for a series that will take you up to GCSE or near, if possible.
I suspect that this approach will be the most efficient if you have a family to look after - you need something that you can open up and solve a couple of problems when you have a few minutes to spare.
