Description
This is a mathophobe's answered prayer. After a revealing discussion of what went wrong with the teaching of math in the U.S., it sets out to remedy the situation by demonstrating that we have nothing to fear from math. With a step-by-step program, it helps adults conquer their math fears and dysfunctions, integrate mathematical competency into their lives and begin to enjoy the pleasures of numbers. Demonstrating both the intellectual amusement and increased personal productivity that a familiarity with numbers can provide, it builds a firm foundation of basic calculating skills that will enable readers to approach numbers with confidence, gain control over their finances and apply their new skills in the workplace.
