ABOUT THIS BOOK
Claudia Zaslavsky has helped thousands of men and women understand why math made them miserable. Let her introduce you to real people who, like you, fled from anything to do with math. All of themWhite, African American, Asian American, Latino, artist, homemaker, manager, teacher, teenager, or grandparentcame to see that their math troubles were not their fault. Social stereotypes, poor schools, and wellmeaning parents had convinced them that they couldnÕt, or shouldnÕt, do math. Claudia Zaslavsky shows you how the school math you dreaded is a far cry from the math you really need in life (and probably know better than you ever suspected)! She gives a host of reassuring methods, drawn from many cultures, for tackling realworld math problems. She explodes the myth that women and minorities are not good at math. With Claudia Zaslavsky’s help, you can see why math matters and how to get over the math barrier that has been holding you back from your goals in life.
