Do mathematics and algebraic formulas leave your head spinning?
If so, you are like hundreds of thousands of other students who face math-especially, algebra-with fear. Luckily, there is a cure: Bob Miller's Clueless series! Like the teacher you always wished you had (but never thought existed), Bob Miller brings knowledge, empathy, and fun to math and pre-algebra. He breaks down the learning process in an easy, non-technical way and builds it up again using his own unique methods.
Meant to bridge the gulf between the student, the textbook, and the teacher, Basic Math and Pre-Algebra for the Clueless is packed with all the latest information you need to conquer basic math and pre-algebra, including:
“I am always delighted when a student tells me that he or she hated math … but taking a class with me has made math understandable … even enjoyable.” Now it's your turn. Sharpen your #2 pencils, and let Bob Miller show you how to never be clueless again!
