by Keith Kressin
Most realize the importance of being able to use math in today's society. However, reasons for solving math problems as taught often remain a mystery. This is because many learn math in school only by solving problems similar to examples.
Mathematics is a much mre fun, easy, and useful subject if understood.
Kressin supplies intuition and understanding in an easy-to-read, non-technical discussion. He begins with a subject everyone already understands - counting. Then he systematically builds on this topic until finally reaching the advanced math subject of Calculus.
