A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra)


Read More...
The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn"

Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.
 
In A Mind for Numbers, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, 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. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think!Tarcher

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

In TAKEN BY LOVE... Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again--but she's completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her--and the man she's never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he's finally ready to settle down--only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he's never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke's past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy's life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can't manage a future until he puts his past to rest.TAKEN BY LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series.

Concrete Walls and Steel Bars The New Willie Lynch

"Concrete Walls and Steel Bars The New Willie Lynch" MR. P.D. White

Concrete Walls And Steel Bars The New Willie Lynch is the key to unlocking the chains that many African Americans find themselves mentally imprisoned in. In 1712, a man named Willie Lynch gave a speech to slave owners telling them, "If you follow my instructions, you will have the negro under your control for the next 300 years." This mindset, infused in the philosophy he taught to slave owners-which was to beat, burn and scarred slaves--has now influenced the trauma and mental illnesses affecting generations of African-Americans today. Today we see many of his teachings in our African-Americans on a day to day basis. Now not knowing why we feel this way, or react the way we do towards one another. Concrete Walls and Steel Bars: The New Willie Lynch is the key to unlocking the chains and release your mental and emotional freedoms that you desire.
