We are excited to provide this review of the complementary copy of Math for Grownups we received.
Ever wish you’d paid more attention in math class? From third grade to senior year of high school, it went in one ear and out the other, didn’t it?
But now you’re staring at the new washer and dryer, trying to figure out the percentage of sales tax on the purchase price. You multiply something by something, right? Or you’re scratching your head, wondering how to compute the odds that your football team will take next Sunday’s game. You’re pretty sure that involved ratios. The problem is, you can’t quite remember.
Here you get an adult refresher and real-life context–with examples ranging from how to figure out how many shingles it takes to re-roof the garage to the formula for resizing Mom’s tomato sauce recipe for your entire family.
Forget higher calculus–you just need an open mind. And with this practical guide, math can stop being scary and start being useful.
Our Thoughts …
We were excited to bring you a guest post by author Laura Laing on the topic of The Arithmetic of Allowance. Math for Grownups is an easy read and makes you feel like you actually can do math … you know why though, because you can and you already do every day! We do so much math every day and we don’t even notice that we use fractions, work out formulas, or multiple in our heads. Now I will be the first to admit that I am horrible at math. Sure I got good grades in math class and needed math for my degree but it is not my love for sure. I am the first to whip out a calculator while Brian sits here and does the math faster in his head. (He is a dork like that!) Anyway, I know I do math all of the time but it nice to see math in this non-scary approach. Check it out and I bet you will how much math you use and can use in your daily routine!
