what I have seen.
The book offers a brief, to-the-point, clear explanation of some basic math
points for journalists as well as for the average person. I appreciate the
inclusion of basic math computations, statistics, business concepts, etc. The
summation of useful formulas at the end of the text is a nice touch as well.
The Skill Drills at the end of each section is very helpful, and it's great to
have an answer key as well. Also impressive is the inclusion of actual news
articles for each section demonstrating how journalists have used the math
concept covered by the chapter in their reporting.
I have a fairly strong math background (relatively speaking, for a
communications professional) and yet have found the text helpful in reviewing
some basic math principles. In addition, I have learned concepts I feel I have
needed to understand for some time just by going over the text and seeing the
simply stated explanations.
Math Tools for Journalists is definitely a handy-guide for any beginning journalist!
