More About This Book

Overview

Math Overboard! is a complete review of school math, from kindergarten to Grade 12. It is ideally suited for self-study by students (especially those planning to enter college or university), parents, educators, and other interested adults. Every standard topic is completely covered, with easy-to-understand explanations. Math Overboard! places equal emphasis on computational skills and overall comprehension of math. Frequent Problems support learning.

Math Overboard! is designed to remove any gaps in your mathematical training (or remembrance) -- gaps that can be devastating in terms of allowing you to succeed in more advanced, college-level courses. If, for example, you feel shaky in Algebra, or Trigonometry, studying the chapters on those topics will rapidly bring you "up to speed." Using the detailed Index can lead you to discussions of words or topics that you may have forgotten.

Finally, Math Overboard! describes many real-world uses of elementary mathematics, in Science, Technology, Finance and Economics, and other fields.
Reading about these applications will help to convince you of the usefulness of one of mankind's greatest achievements, the world of mathematics.

Colin W. Clark is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of British
Columbia. Math Overboard! is the book that Dr. Clark wishes his students had access to, as they struggled to grasp Calculus based on a weak understanding (often misunderstanding) of school-level math. Clark's previous books include
Mathematical Bioeconomics - The Mathematics of Conservation, and Dynamic State-Variable Models in Ecology. Colin and his wife Janet live in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, Canada.
