Math for Grownups It’s back to school for grownups and kids alike.  Launch your inner math geek this fall and confidently help your kids with their homework with a free download of MATH FOR GROWNUPS: Relearn the Arithmetic You Forgot From School by Laura Laing.  Available today through September 10th. Check out the write up of Laura’s book in this weekend’s edition of USA Today Weekend.

Ever wish you’d paid more attention in math class? We’ve all been there: Staring at two different brands of laundry detergent, wondering which is the best deal, trying to size up Mom’s tomato sauce recipe for a party of 10, or figuring out the fuel efficiency of that new car.  The fact is math crops up in a variety of everyday settings—from the grocery store to the craft room.  But you don’t need to break into a sweat when it’s time to calculate a tip.  Forget higher calculus—you just need an open mind.

MATH FOR GROWNUPS: Relearn the Arithmetic You Forgot From School by Laura Laing makes math manageable, by providing an adult refresher and real-life context for math—with examples ranging from calculating your monthly mortgage payment, to figuring out if that new refrigerator will fit in an old kitchen. As a teacher and self-proclaimed math-evangelist, Laura Laing offers tips on overcoming the white-knuckled panic that many grownups experience when numbers enter their everyday life.  She takes swipes at the myths that most people believe about math and offers easy ways for individuals to tap into their inner math geek.

    OMG! I have three full undergrad degrees, minors in Biology and Chemistry, one Masters (English), conventional teacher certification, and Montessori certifications from 3YO through 9th grade—I am educated out the wazoo, but I am a total lost cause when it comes to higher Math skills! My son, a 4th year med student now, called me once when he was still an under-grad to let me know about the semester. He said, “You know, Mom, Cal3is kind of fun.” I almost choked on my sip of coffee. I had never heard the words “Cal3” and “Fun” uttered in the same sentence.
    I really need this book.

      LOL! Mary, you sound just like my husband! He got really upset once when we were playing blackjack at the casino and the dealer made a crack about him adding on his fingers. He’s very smart and a college graduate, but for some reason math has always eluded him. Maybe this book will be able to help him too! Thanks so much for stopping by today…have a great one! :big grin:
