Don't live in fear of math any longer.

Math Magic makes math what you may never have imagined it to be: easy and fun!

Scott Flansburg -- "the Human Calculator" who believes that there are no "mathematical illiterates," just people who have not learned how to make math work for them -- demonstrates how everyone can put their phobia to rest and deal with essential every-day mathematical calculations with confidence. This is the book for millions of otherwise successful adults who are afraid to balance their checkbooks and don't know how to figure interest on savings or credit, and for the millions of students who dread their math classes and live in fear of the SAT math section.

In Math Magic, Scott Flansburg shows the reader how to:

  • Master the basics, including the real way addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division work
  • Simplify calculations through estimation
  • Quick-check answers
  • Convert metric measures to more familiar ones
  • Figure tips, taxes, and percentages -- never get short-changed again!
  • Master algebra using the nine easy steps to algebra

Math Magic is for all of us who need and want to improve our understanding of math. With the help of Flansburg, the Guinness World Record holder as the Fastest Human Calculator, you can do math just like magic.

About the Author:

Scott Flansburg is the author of the bestselling book Math Magic. His lectures and his video, Turn on the Human Calculator in You, have helped countless children and adults learn the power of math. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

From Library Journal:

Flansburg, "the human calculator" and author of the popular video, Turn on the Human Calculator in You , seeks to improve math education by introducing tricks for performing accurate mental calculations and fun alternate approaches to common math class difficulties. Students are motivated to learn by the chance to show off by quickly solving difficult-looking math problems. Included are ways to simplify problems, tricks for special instances, and explanations of common numerical systems like measurements, calendars, time zones, and prices. One disappointment is that no explanation is offered for some of the most interesting calculation tricks work. Still, in the hands of an enthusiastic teacher, many of these ideas could add excitement to math class. This is a school-oriented pre-algebra course with a little consumer math thrown in. A crash course in algebra is included near the end.
