My son is coming home with math homework now. So far, he likes it. I wonder how much math I actually remember from high school. If you think about it, we use math everyday but oftentimes we guesstimate when we forget exactly how to do it. The Math for Grownups book is all about easily relearning arithmetic that you have forgotten from school to make life easier – and more exact.

Have you ever tried to double, triple, or just 1-1/2 a recipe? Do you ever ended up needing to add something like 10-2/3 tablespoons of something to a recipe and can’t do the quick math to 2/3 cup? The Math for Grownups book is for you. It will help you with such conversions. Or maybe you need 5/4 cups of something. Remembering some simple fractions can help you get to 1-1/4 cups – saving you time and feeling silly for scooping out 5 1/4 cups for your recipe.
