<b>The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn"</b><br /><br />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, <i>A Mind for Numbers</i> 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.<br />  <br /> In <i>A Mind for Numbers</i>, 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!

<h2>You don’t have to buy this book. Just read this till the end</h2> <br />You don’t have to buy this book. Just read this till end & you will learn something that will change the way you do math forever. <b>Warning:</b> I am revealing this secret only to the first set of readers who will buy this book & plan to put this secret back inside the book once I have enough sales. So read this until the very end while you still can.<br /><br /><h2>School taught you the wrong way to do math</h2><br />The way you were taught to do math, uses a lot of working memory. Working memory is the short term memory used to complete a mental task. You struggle because trying to do mental math the way you were taught in school, overloads your working memory. Let me show you what I mean with an example:<br />Try to multiply the 73201 x 3. To do this you multiply the following:<br />1 x 3 =<br />0 x 3 =<br />2 x 3 =<br />3 x 3 =<br />7 x 3 =<br />This wasn’t hard, & it might have taken you just seconds to multiply the individual numbers. However, to get the final answer, you need to remember every single digit you calculated to put them back together. It takes effort to get the answer because you spend time trying to recall the numbers you already calculated. Math would be easier to do in your head if you didn’t have to remember so many numbers. <br />Imagine when you tried to multiply 73201 x 3, if you could have come up with the answer, in the time it took you to multiply the individual numbers. Wouldn’t you have solved the problem faster than the time it would have taken you to punch in the numbers inside a calculator? <br /><br /><h2>Do the opposite of what you were taught in school</h2><br />The secret of doing mental math is to calculate from left to right instead of from right to left. This is the opposite of what you were taught in school. This works so well because it frees your working memory almost completely. It is called the LR Method where LR stands for <b>L</b>eft to <b>R</b>ight.<br />Lets try to do the earlier example where we multiplied 73201 x 3. This time multiply from left to right, so we get:<br />7 x 3 = 21<br />3 x 3 = 9<br />3 x 2 = 6<br />0 x 3 = 0<br />3 x 1 = 3<br />Notice that you started to call out the answer before you even finished the whole multiplication problem. You don’t have to remember a thing to recall & use later. So you end up doing math a lot faster. <br /><br /><h2>The Smart Choice</h2><br />You could use what you learnt & apply it to solve math in the future. This might not be easy, because we just scratched the surface. I've already done the work for you. Why try to reinvent the wheel, when there is already a proven & tested system you can immediately apply. <br />This book was first available in video format & has helped 10,000+ students from 132 countries. It is available at ofpad.com/mathcourse to enroll. This book was written to reach students who consume the information in text format. You can use the simple techniques in this book to do math faster than a calculator effortlessly in your head, even if you have no aptitude for math to begin with.<br />Imagine waking up tomorrow being able to do lightning fast math in your head. Your family & friends will look at you like you are some kind of a genius. Since calculations are done in your head, you will acquire better mental habits in the process. So you will not just look like a genius. You will actually be one. <br /><br /><h2>Limited Time Bonus</h2><br />Weekly training delivered through email is available for free as a bonus at the end of this book for the first set of readers. Once we have enough readers, this bonus will not be available for free. <br /><br /><h2>Why Price Is So Low</h2><br />This book is priced at a ridiculous discount only to get our first set of readers. When we have enough readers the price will go up. <br /><br /><h2>Click Buy Now</h2><br />Click "Buy Now" to lock your discounted price & free bonus, or you risk coming back at a later date or even a few minutes from now to see the price go up.
