Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Does math intimidate you? Don’t panic! The good news is that just a handful of central ideas and techniques can carry you a very long way. So, I am pleased to present this book: a no-nonsense guide to the essentials of the subject, especially written for anyone who ‘was never any good at mathematics’. 

With chapters on the language of mathematics, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, fractions, geometry, trigonometry, graphs, statistics, and probability, this book is sure to have the information that you seek to understand. Complete with quizzes in each chapter, this book gives you all the tools to become proficient in different areas of math.

The Math Handbook is the complete and easy guide to becoming better at doing math in your head, especially percentages and money calculations—the day-to-day mathematics that you use on a regular basis. It’s perfect for getting parents up to speed fast in order to help their children with homework, or compete in the workplace.

Synopsis:

This is the perfect introduction for those who have a lingering fear of math. If you think that math is difficult, confusing, dull or just plain scary, then The Math Handbook is your ideal companion.

 

Covering all the basics including fractions, equations, primes, squares and square roots, geometry and fractals, Dr. Richard Elwes will lead you gently towards a greater understanding of this fascinating subject. Even apparently daunting concepts will be explained simply, with the assistance of useful diagrams, and with a refreshing lack of jargon. So whether you’re an adult or a student, whether you’re the sort of person who does Sudoku puzzles, crosswords, or has always been daunted by numbers at work, school or in everyday life, you won’t find a better way of overcoming your nervousness about math and learning to enjoy this most amazing of human discoveries.
