This title includes a superbly written introduction to the fascinating world of mathematical symbols, their meanings, and their uses. Mention the word mathematics and most people's reaction will be one of general bewilderment. There's something about its language of symbols and equations that many find intimidating. "Math for the Frightened" gently introduces readers to the main concepts of mathematics and painlessly demonstrates how they are expressed as symbols, why symbols are used, and what can be achieved by doing so.
