Now anyone with an interest in the math of daily life can gain a deeper understanding. Everyday Math Demystified provides an effective, fun, and totally painless way to improve your understanding and mastery of the math you find in newspapers, on TV, at the bank or store, on vacation, in school — and just about everywhere.

With Everyday Math Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide helps you decipher such topics as numbers and arithmetic, measurements, and fractions and graphs, and puts them into the context of real-life situations youre sure to encounter.

If you want to build or refresh your everyday math skills, here's a fast and entertaining self-teaching course that's specially designed to reduce anxiety. Get ready to:

* Review arithmetic, ratios, proportions, money issues, international units, and scientific notation

* Master equations, solve for unknowns, and figure odds

* Calculate size, shape, and volume

* Read and create graphs in two and three dimensions

* Conquer scientific and engineering math, such as logarithms, exponents, angles, magnitude and direction, and rates of change

* Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Simple enough for real beginners but challenging enough for math-savvy readers, Everyday Math Demystified is your direct route to learning or brushing up on the mathematical aspects of daily life.

Synopsis:
