Thankfully, Laura Laing has written a great refresher course in Math For Grownups. It's wise, witty, and most importantly, will get me through my son's next few math classes.
Thank you Laura! I'm in your debt.
Definitely worth the money.
There are no figures in the book and yet the author is writing about everyday math.
For example, she helps the reader construct a flower bed without any visual help.
Secondly, there are at least three major errors in the book.
For example, on page 116, the author says, "If you divide 23 by 12,
you'll end up with 2 1/12 cups", but 2 1/12 should be 1 11/12.
On page 204, the formula for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit should be
9C/5 + 32, not 9/5(C+32).
I have already loaned my copy out to two people, who also found it very worthwhile.
Now I can help my child with his homework with total confidence!
Well done, Ms. Laing!

Interesting but no surprises. Not sure what is happening today but many young people seem to be math-a-phobic. I'm sure that eventually things will work out. Read morePublished on September 5, 2013 by joevas
