My review ( November 10, 2018):- After reviewing pro school and primary school math books, I have just started reviewing middle school (Class - VI, VII, VIII) math books. And this particular book is for Class VI children of Indian School Board ICSE. As it is for middle school kids, obviously the contents are a little bit advanced and in-depth than primary school books (Class - I, II, III, IV, V).
