So simple and yet so powerful, it's a wonder that we haven't seen a book like this before. The Mathematics Survival Kit 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.
