It is ideally suited for self-study by students (especially those planning to enter college or university), parents, educators, and other interested adults. Every standard topic is completely covered, with easy-to-understand explanations. Math Overboard! places equal emphasis on computational skills and overall comprehension of math. Frequent Problems support learning. Math Overboard! is designed to remove any gaps in your mathematical training (or remembrance) -- gaps that can be devastating in terms of allowing you to succeed in more advanced, college-level courses. If, for example, you feel shaky in Algebra, or Trigonometry, studying the chapters on those topics will rapidly bring you "up to speed." Using the detailed Index can lead you to discussions of words or topics that you may have forgotten. Finally, Math Overboard! describes many real-world uses of elementary mathematics, in Science, Technology, Finance and Economics, and other fields. Reading about these applications will help to convince you of the usefulness of one of mankind's greatest achievements, the world of mathematics. Colin W. Clark is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia. Math Overboard! is the book that Dr. Clark wishes his students had access to, as they struggled to grasp Calculus based on a weak understanding (often misunderstanding) of school-level math. Clark's previous books include Mathematical Bioeconomics - The Mathematics of Conservation, and Dynamic State-Variable Models in Ecology. Colin and his wife Janet live in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, Canada.

Kate Nonsuch has a wonderful way of simplifying what is often perceived as complicated by both literacy instructors and students. In Changing the Way We Teach Math, Kate examines her own teaching methods/assumptions around math and takes a deeper look at how/why students are resistant to learning math skills. Table of contents: * Introduction (how did this manual come about, the literature, reaction to the literature, recipes and equations, responses to questions) * Resistance (my own resistance, student resistance - what does it look like, dealing with student resistance) * Emotions and maths (expressing feelings - joy, confidence, fear, anxiety, test anxiety, boredom, anger, humiliation, trauma and learning maths) * Hands-on learning (Manipulatives - why use manipulatives, finding, making and buying manipulatives. Visual representations, showing information on charts and graphs) * Group work (when group skills are low) * Real life problems (barriers to using real life problems - students know and teachers don't, teachers and students understand differently, math problems include hidden motives, real problems are messy. Just do it - doing taxes, field trips, bringing real life into the classroom) * Students take charge (strategies - make your practice transparent, help them learn about themselves, give up the power to make decisions) * Activities for students (place value, fractions, maths song book, notations for percents, decimals and fractions) * Websites of interest.
