Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows very well knew how it feels to struggle with math. She could not pass in math and science course. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical understanding limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with the determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.

A Mind for Numbers is the right option for students struggling in math and science as it throws light on an effective learning of the subject. Subject like math requires both creative and analytic thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem.

The book not only includes the learning strategies applicable to math and science but also to other subjects one is struggling in. This book is a guide based on the latest research in the cognitive sciences and provides a clear, appropriate and entertaining solution as to how to get the most out of learning. This is a must-read for anyone who has struggled with mathematics and anyone interested in enhancing their learning experience. The book comes in paperback and is available on Amazon
