### Summary

This book uses simplified language about mathematics to promote active and independent learning; strengthening critical thinking and writing skills. A “ six-step” approach to problem-solving, numerous tips, and clear, concise explanations throughout the book enable users to "understand" the concepts underlying mathematical processes. Beginning with the foundations of the mathematical process, some of the topics covered are: whole numbers and decimals; integers; fractions; percents; measurement; area and perimeter; interpreting and analyzing data; symbolic representation, linear and nonlinear equations; powers and logarithms; formulas and applications; higher-degree equations; absolute values and inequalities; slope and distance; basic concepts in geometry; and an introduction to trigonometry. This book can serve as a valuable reference handbook for engineering technicians, nurses, dieticians, job trainers, home-schooling professionals, and others who require a basic knowledge of non-calculus mathematics.
