Math: A Crash Course : Become An Instant Expert Hardback

Part of the Crash Course series



It's a sad truth that maths has the reputation of being "difficult." Part of the problem is that many of us simply don't speak the language.

To a mathematician, an equation is a compact, efficient way to put across a relationship that would be far less comprehensible in words.

But to many of us, the merest sign of an x, y, or symbol is an impenetrable mess that our eyes bounce off.

This book provides an engaging overview of what maths is and what it can do, without having to solve simultaneous equations or prove geometric theorems, far more of us might get the point of it.

It is divided into four chapters, each covering a major developmental route in the topic, from Arithmetic & Numbers to Geometry and from Algebra & Calculus to Applied Mathematics.
