    Quantitative Reasoning: A Reasonable Approach provides students with reliable techniques and practical strategies to help them overcome their fears of mathematics and testing. The text presents critical mathematics concepts and approaches to problem-solving in an accessible and approachable way.

    The opening chapter addresses the various causes of math-related anxiety, provides students with study tips, discusses test taking, and reviews fractions, decimals, and essential vocabulary for numerical operations, as well as how to approach word problems/application situations. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on algebraic topics, including coverage of integers, percentages, exponents, algebraic expressions, and linear equations. Additional chapters walk students through unit conversions, graphing, and working with linear functions. Students learn fundamental math principles related to finances, including the calculation of taxes and markups/markdowns, the applications of simple and compound interest, and the determination of cost, revenue, and profit. Probability concepts, statistics, and how to solve systems of equations are covered. The final chapter is dedicated to matrices.

    Quantitative Reasoning is designed to help students thrive in foundational mathematics courses at the college level.

    Kenneth Mann is a teacher and tutor of mathematics for over 30 years and still loves it. He holds a master’s degree in statistics and B.S. in mathematics from Old Dominion University.
