Readers wishing to renew and extend their acquaintance with a variety of branches of mathematics will find this volume a practical companion. Geared toward those who already possess some familiarity with its subjects, the easy-to-follow explanations and straightforward tone make this book highly accessible. The contents are arranged logically and in order of difficulty: fractions, decimals, square and cube root, the metric system, algebra, quadratic and cubic equations, graphs, and the calculus are among the topics. Explanations of mathematical principles are followed by worked examples, and the book includes a convenient selection of tables that cover the trigonometrical functions and logarithms necessary for completing some of the examples.
