Mathematics, rightly viewed,
possesses not only truth,
but supreme beauty--
a beauty cold and austere,
like that of sculpture

American Preparatory Institute.
**Math Skills by
Objectives. **New York: Cambridge Book Company, 1985.*Math Skills by Objectives* is a series of three workbooks with accompanying
answer booklets and a test booklet. The workbooks provide explanations and drills
in a number of math skills. *Book One* explains whole numbers, fractions,
decimals and percents. *Book Two* explains graphs and tables, consumer math
skills, measurement, and basic geometry. *Book Three* reviews basic
arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and test-taking skills. These books would be a good
choice for anyone who thinks they need to brush up specific math skills.

Ashley, Ruth.** Background Math for a Computer World.**
New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1980.*Background Math for a Computer World* introduces those with a limited
background to the math needed to work in the machine language of computer
programming. The book introduces the binary number system, computer logic, and
linear equations.

Chernow, Fred B. **Business Mathematics Simplified and
Self-Taught**. New York: Arco Publishing, Inc., 1984.*Business Mathematics Simplified and Self-Taught* provides detailed
explanations of a number of basic arithmetic functions, such as rounding off,
dividing by 10, 100, 1000, etc., before discussing fractions, decimals,
percentages, interest and other business math applications.

Deese, James, and Ellin K. Deese.
**How to Study .**
New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1969.*How to Study* is an introduction to study skills for on-campus students. The
book covers time management, reading, and essay writing. It also provides tips for
studying foreign languages, math and science.

Goldish, Dorothy M.** Basic Mathematics for Beginning
Chemistry. **New York: Macmillan Publishing Co., Inc., 1983.

*Basic Mathematics for Beginning Chemistry* is intended to refresh students'
mathematical memory for university chemistry. The book introduces mathematical
concepts, illustrated with examples, and provides exercises and answer keys.

Hackworth, Robert D., and Joseph W. Howland.** Programmed
Arithmetic**. Clearwater, Florida: H & H Publishing Company, Inc., 1983.

*Programmed Arithmetic* teaches arithmetic. Each idea is explained then
followed with examples and exercises. There are tests for each chapter with
answers at the back of the book. Students who have never mastered multiplying and
dividing fractions, or do not understand the meaning of ten to the seventh power,
will find this book helpful. The book's table of contents is thorough enough to
locate the most relevant topics.

Hartkopf, Roy. **Math Without Tears.** Boston: G.K.
Hall & Co., 1985.*Math Without Tears* will expand students' knowledge of mathematical
languages and show the relationships between them (e.g., the relationship of
trigonometry to calculus). The book explores and refutes the common idea that
mathematics yields one correct answer. The author shows that, depending upon the
mathematical system one uses, one plus one could equal two, three, or more.

Parson, Ted.** Demystifying Math.** Victoria, B.C.:
University of Victoria, 1985.*Demystifying Math* is a workbook to refresh math skills. The book begins
with arithmetic and proceeds to algebra, sets and Cartesian products, graphs of
linear equations and inequalities, systems of linear equations, exponents, and
quadratic equations. There are exercises and self-tests throughout. Students who
find these words familiar but cannot remember what they mean may find this book
useful.

Selby, Peter H. **Quick Algebra Review.
**New York:
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1983.*Quick Algebra Review* is intended as a refresher for those who studied

application to measurement. The book has exercises with answer keys to help
students test and deepen their understanding.

Tobias, Sheila. **Overcoming Math Anxiety**.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1980.*Overcoming Math Anxiety* examines the cause of the difficulty, paying
special attention to the biases that make women feel incapable of learning and
using math. The author explores the problems in words and illustrates the ideas
with examples and drawings. The book also has explanations and exercises to help
readers overcome common mathematical stumbling blocks
