Math: Facing an American Phobia
Research shows more than two-thirds of American adults fear and loathe mathematics. But is doesn't have to be that way. This book looks at why math has such a bad reputation. It laughs at itself while it sneaks its message through about what math can and should mean to us all and how we can keep our children from adopting the negative attitudes many of us have.
