Almost all adults suffer a little math anxiety, especially when it comes to everyday problems they think they should be able to figure out in their heads. Want to figure the six percent sales tax on a $34.50 item? A 15 percent tip for a $13.75 check? The carpeting needed for a 12½-by-17-foot room? No one learns how to do these mental calculations in school, where the emphasis is on paper-and-pencil techniques. With no math background required and no long list of rules to memorize, this book teaches average adults how to simplify their math problems, provides ample real-life practice problems and solutions, and gives grown-ups the necessary background in basic arithmetic to handle everyday problems quickly.

About the Author:

W. J. Howard is a mathematician who specializes in making technical information understandable to the general reader.

From Library Journal:

This is not a book for people who are afraid of math, although it is presented as an antidote to the way math is often taught in school. The author expresses a fascination with mathematical principles and a joy in number manipulation that will seem entirely unfamiliar to those who dislike math in the first place. The book offers a concise overview of basic arithmetic and helpful techniques for solving story problems (the bane of every schoolchild's existence). It's not quite as much fun as a book of math puzzles, but a grade-school student who enjoys math might like this book, or it could be used as a workbook for a class. For popular math collections.
- Amy Brunvand, Fort Lewis Coll. Lib., Durango, Col.
