Succeed with Math: Every Student's Guide to Conquering Math Anxiety.

Tobias, Sheila

This book, written primarily for college students who feel uncomfortable with mathematics, attempts to provide its readers with new ways of thinking about mathematics, reading mathematics, studying mathematics, talking the language of mathematics and appreciating the power of using mathematics. Chapter 1 deals directly with the problem of math anxiety. The second chapter discusses the reading of mathematics. The rest of the book deals more directly with mathematics content including: (1) problem solving; (2) the wonders of pi; (3) taming numbers; and (4) equalities and inequalities. Included are some specific mathematical applications from social science, biology, economics and business. The final chapter suggests further readings. (PK)
