So simple and yet so powerful, it's a wonder that we haven't seen a book like this before. The Mathematics Survival Kit 2e gives you exactly what you need to continue with your homework with quick 5-minute concise and friendly reviews of 115 mathematical concepts. Combining high school course outlines, the standard first year university calculus and algebra curricula, and thirty years of teaching experience, the author has identified those topics that students, from high school to university, find most problematic and offers a handy reference for tackling those concepts in a step-by-step fashion. This second edition has twenty five new topics; all suggested by readers of the first edition, including students, teachers, and even parents! Also, included in this edition is a list of popular math formulas for quick reference when working on your homework or studying for that exam.
