For Math Aficionados From All Walks of Life! The Little Green Math Book reads like a collection of math recipes to help us blend problems, principles, and approaches in creating our own lineup of splendid math cuisine. The book's four chapters include: (1) Basic Numeracy Ingredients, (2) Wonderful Math Recipes, (3) Favorite Numeracy Dishes, and (4) Special Math Garnishments. Along with 30 of the most fundamental, recurring math principles and rules, readers will find a three-tier system to rate the difficulty level of all 100 problems - one chili ("mild"), two chilies ("hot"), and three chilies ("very hot"). Enjoy the benefits of your own self-paced math course: *Develop a feel for how numbers behave and what makes math problems tick. *Review the five classic formulas governing percentage increase and decrease. *Watch for pitfalls when expressing ratios as fractions, percents, or decimals. *Employ templates to solve math problems of similar category or type. *Use simple math to solve "business" scenarios involving price, cost, volume, profit, and break-even, as well as how to calculate markup versus margin and efficiency. *Be able to read graphs and grasp their underlying math themes. *Understand correlation: weak or strong, positive or negative, linear or nonlinear. *Gain a newfound confidence with an increased competency with numbers. Contents: Topics covered in this book include: Chapter 1 - Basic Numeracy Ingredients (percentages, ratios and proportions, reciprocals, order of operations); Chapter 2 - Wonderful Math Recipes (overlap scenarios, matrix scenarios, mixture scenarios, weighted average scenarios); Chapter 3 - Favorite Numeracy Dishes (markup vs. margin, price-cost-volume and profit, break-even point, aggregate costs vs. per-unit costs, efficiency, distribution and allocation); Chapter 4 - Special Math Garnishments (translating basic graphs: line graphs, pie charts, and bar charts, correlation, measures of average and dispersion, and statistical significance).
