“Every school classroom has a special flavor. And of all these flavors, it is often that of the mathematics classroom that has left the bitterest taste. In here, you face the ordeal of quick-fire questions designed to expose and embarrass the weakest among you. In here, every furrowed brow and frustrated sigh signals the same unspoken message: 'I don't understand!'”
Does this sound familiar? This book will banish such memories and put the fun back into sums. Lawrence Potter's encouraging words will demystify numbers for even the most obstinate nonbeliever. Includes examples on how to cope with everyday mathematical encounters ranging from filling out tax returns to playing the lottery.
