## Overview

Prentice Hall's Reference to Mathematics: A Guide for Everyday Math is intended to be the resource for mathematical concepts. It will help you feel empowered to accomplish whatever you want, without the fear mathematics will hold you back.

A mathematics handbook, like a dictionary, should be part of every home, school, and workplace. Too often when we need to use or understand a mathematical procedure we haven't used in a long time, we end up remembering just bits and pieces of the procedure. Prentice Hall's Reference to Mathematics: A Guide for Everyday Math is designed to help fill in the gaps. This resource was developed in response to the many requests from returning students, working adults, and teachers who have been frustrated with the limited resources available when trying to learn or review a mathematical process.
