Math: Facing an American Phobia.
More than two-thirds of American adults fear and/or loathe mathematics. This book looks at why math has the dreadful reputation that it does and provides a chance to face math phobia and help others. This book delivers a positive message about what math can and should mean to all and how children can be kept from adopting the negative attitudes many have. (KHR)
