This book is for you if you would like to be involved in your school-going kid's math education and need to get your own basics right, or if you decided to extend your education, may be involving some computer programming, or statistics and want to be up to speed in junior high school math before taking the next step. This is not on teaching techniques.
This is by no means comprehensive. It highlights some of the topics that are either easily forgotten or have been recently included in school math. For your own higher studies, it is hoped that you won’t need junior high school textbooks after reading this book, provided you studied math in school and still have some of it left in you.

About the Author
I went to the following schools. 1) English Major 2) Diploma in RDBMS 3) Post Graduate Diploma in … [that's my secret] 4) Certificate in Computer Servicing 5) Microsoft Certified Solution Developer I brought up over a dozen house cats in my 20s. As a kid and as a teenager I was never a good amateur cricketer, not even average. But I insisted on letting everyone bowl and keep wicket whenever I was made captain. I also started the batting order with the guys who were the least likely to get a chance to bat with practically any of the other captains. Winning a casual open-to-everyone game was much less important to me than giving everyone a fair chance. Since the dominant guys wanted to hog all the action and were more vocal it would seem that I was a very unpopular captain. But I doubt it. I'm proud to be an Indian and a world citizen. However, I always hated the most popular traditional attire worn by Indian women. The "sari" is a trap! I always thought it a better idea to drive one's own four-wheeler than hire a chauffer -- something that was quite uncommon in India when I was a toddler.
