A great book for basic maths.,
This review is from: Basic Maths For Dummies (UK Edition) (Paperback)
This book reviews some of the most fundamental mathematics for school pupils, and for people who struggles with basic maths in daily situations. It is divided in comprehensive chapters, each of them focusing on a specific point. Chapters are very well organised with clearly indicated subtopics. It is full of simple tricks to make adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing a piece of cake for example. It is also full of clever advices about how to use and understand maths. While being very serious on the topic, the style is very engaging and informal (you'll know everything about the author's obsession on large cappuccinos and carrot cakes). This book is ideal for school pupils, as well as for adults who were reluctant of mathematics at school. They won't be anymore, and realise that after all... maths is fun.
