Math For The People


A math book written for normal people who just want to know how to do Basic Math!

If you’re rusty on long division, never got fractions, unsure about decimals, or want to know the ins and outs of percents—this is the book for you!

Math for the People covers the topics of basic math occasionally needed for everyday life or work tasks: arithmetic, fractions, decimals and percents, along with a brief explanation of the various number systems. Usable math for the everyday man and woman.

Written in a light, conversational tone that will engage the average adult reader, Math for the People is designed as an all-in-one tool—all that’s required is a pencil. Portable. No need for internet access. No bells and whistles. Nothing to intimidate the person who just wants some quiet time to fulfill what is perhaps a bucket-list goal: learning to communicate with the world of numbers.

Ample room is provided to work through hundreds of examples, both “You-Try-It” examples inline with the narrative material as well as full end-of-section exercise sets. Answers to all the problems are provided.

The author has taught mathematics since 1999.
