At a time when two-thirds of American high school students are not proficient in math, this book comes to the rescue of math-phobes of all ages. Whether you are a college student struggling to fulfill a math requirement or a professional in a field requiring high-level analytic s...kills, A Mind for Numbers is geared toward anyone who has ever been intimidated by math. Barbara Oakley, a successful engineering professor who once flunked her way through high school math and science classes, understands this audience well. Offering insights in neuroscience and cognitive psychology, Dr. Oakley teaches us how to fully utilize the right side of the brain (for creative, big-picture thinking), as well as the analytical left side (for problem solving). She addresses common stumbling blocks to approaching math and science, and shows us how to use our personal learning style to its fullest advantage.
