In Maths in Bite-sized Chunks, Chris Waring proves that it's easy to break the subject down into accessible, understandable information, much of which, in fact, we use in one way or another every day of our lives.Each chapter takes readers through the theory, demonstrating how to master it with worked-through problems and examples from the real world. Topics that once seemed impenetrable suddenly become relatable and easier to unpick. So whether it's algebra or statistics that once had you flummoxed, get ready for a new way of being mathematically minded.
