This chapter deals with fractions and decimals. This is one place where people who are otherwise fine with math jump off the boat and decide it's just too weird to continue. As with everything else, though, it's only a matter of understanding what's going on. Try to memorize your way through, and you're in trouble. Insist that everything makes sense, though, and you're fine. Included in this free selection taken from top Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It: Math you will find the Table Contents and Index.
