Don't be Baffled at Binomial Blvd. & Algebra Ave.

Overview

This is not the standard fare you see in Vedic and Speed Math books. We have skipped the parts about doing four and five digit math, square roots, and days in history. Included instead, there is original, new material, and observations about finding cross products without doing vertical and crosswise calculations. This unique book also has a good solid tie to Binomial Algebra; the subject and point where many students opt out of math.

Overview

This is not the standard fare you see in Vedic and Speed Math books. We have skipped the parts about doing four and five digit math, square roots, and days in history. Included instead, there is original, new material, and observations about finding cross products without doing vertical and crosswise calculations. This unique book also has a good solid tie to Binomial Algebra; the subject and point where many students opt out of math.

The book is geared toward the middle school student who has just started algebra, and doesn?t quite understand it or how important it is in a global economy. It is a great update to arithmetic with an algebraic flavor, and adults will also find it eye-opening and insightful. This short, easy read will show you alternative ways to multiply numbers. You pick the right tool, instead of trying to use the same tool for everything. Become a craftsman with numbers! For more mental math tips visit my website: www.binomialblvd.com

    I'm not a math person. I stopped at pre-algebra in high school, and took basic math in college only because it was required.

    This book was made for people like me. Carlin takes complicated math and makes it easy to understand--even enjoyable. This unique math book is especially helpful for the tips it gives for doing math in your head.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and will keep it as a reference if I find the need for more complex math problems.
