Homework for Grown-ups will entertain while exercising the mind and equip you to handle your child's lockdown home-schooling without humiliation.

Any idea why the sky is blue?

Confused about chromosomes?

Don't know your isosceles from your equilateral?

Forgotten what actually happened in 1066?

And are you left slack-jawed when your children ask you what 'quid pro quo' means?

With lessons in mathematics and algebra, English language and literature, chemistry and the sciences, geography, history, Latin, modern languages and more, Homework for Grown-ups... is packed with essential information, facts, figures and theories, along with fun but challenging test questions to keep you on your toes and reignite those long-dormant brain-cells.
