MAKING NUMBERS TALK SENSE
A mathematics message that will revolutionize your thinking
Here is a whole new way of looking at math that liberates math phobes from their anxiety, enables businesspeople to do their jobs more effectively, challenges and informs math buffs, and provides educators with the tools to teach math easily and effectively. Now can it do all that? By reuniting numbers and meaning, two subjects that should never have been separated in the first place. Entertaining, anecdotal, and immensely practical, this extraordinary book offers a revolutionary way of looking at math as a language, something that we've all heard before but which has never made sense until now.
Mathsemantics is that rare book that will change the way you look at the world - and provide the most sensible and inspiring answer yet to the problem of American innumeracy.
"An interesting and helpful discussion of the common sense surrounding the fine art of calculating and estimating."
- John Allen Paulos, author of Innumeracy
