In brief;Maths Year 2000
Understanding Maths is a practical survival guide for students who need maths for FE or HE but who do not want to take a long course to fill the gaps in their knowledge.
It is written in a conversational tone, complete with anecdotes which illustrate the need to be able to function mathematically. The major emphasis is on number, although angles, data handling and algebra are covered at a basic level. More diagrams and exercises would have made this book more user-friendly.
