Whether you are a student struggling to fulfil a maths or science course or you are embarking on a career change that requires a higher level of maths competency, A MIND FOR NUMBERS offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating but inescapable field. Engineering professor, Barbara Oakley, knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with maths. She flunked her way through secondary school maths and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options  both to rise in the military and to explore other careers  she returned to school with a newfound determination to retool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life. In A MIND FOR NUMBERS, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to effectively learning maths and science  secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they'd known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, maths requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there's only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions  you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laserfocused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn maths. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. A MIND FOR NUMBERS shows us that we all have what it takes to excel in maths and learning it is not as painful as some might think!
