<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!<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

Since "Studying Engineering: A Road Map to a Rewarding Career" exploded onto the market in 1995, it has become the best selling Introduction to Engineering textbook of all time. Adopted by over 300 U.S. institutions, and reaching more than 150,000 students, the book has made major inroads into the "sink or swim" paradigm of engineering education. Armed with the book as a powerful tool for "student development," large numbers of engineering programs have implemented Introduction to Engineering courses to improve the academic performance and retention rates of their students.<br /><br />Now, this pioneering text has been updated and expanded to bring students even more clarity in the process of achieving success in engineering study. <br /><br />Significant new material has been added to the Fourth Edition including:<br /><br />Ø A Prologue to provide students with a perspective on what this book has to offer and how to get it.<br /><br />Ø New sections on topics including fixed vs. growth mindset, reverse engineering, sustainability, life-long learning, study abroad, entrepreneurship, teamwork and leadership, engineering ethics, and inspirational and motivational quotations<br /><br />Ø Incorporation of the University of Maryland human-powered helicopter project to illustrate the engineering design process in action<br /><br />Ø The adoption of the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges for Engineering to provide an indication of future directions for engineering<br /><br />Ø Substantially more graphics to make the text more accessible and readable<br /><br />"Studying Engineering" is written for students both those who are already engineering majors and those who are considering engineering as their field of study. <br /><br />The purpose of this innovative and exciting book is to enhance student success. Through its eight chapters it teaches students about: <br /><br />1. The keys to success in engineering study <br /><br />2. The rewards and opportunities of an engineering career. <br /><br />3. An understanding of the field of engineering—past, present, and future <br /><br />4. Insight into the learning process <br /><br />5. Academic success strategies needed to excel in mathematics, science, and engineering courses <br /><br />6. The process of personal development needed to ensure that their behaviors and attitudes support their goal of becoming an engineer <br /><br />7. Ways to enhance the quality of their education through participation in student organizations, pre-professional employment, engineering projects, study abroad, and service the institution and/or community <br /><br />8. The engineering education system and how to take full advantage of that system. <br /><br />Students can read the book on their own or use it in conjunction with an Introduction to Engineering course having a “student development/student success” focus. Reflections are interspersed throughout each chapter so that students can read a section and then stop to engage in a guided reflection about what they just read. Completion of many of 203 end-of-the-chapter problems provides opportunity for significant learning experience. A design project to “Design Your Process of Becoming a World-Class First-Year Engineering Student” provides a vehicle for students to become actively involved in their growth and development as an math/science/engineering student.

<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 for $97 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 be charged $97. <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 worth $97, or you risk coming back at a later date or even a few minutes from now to see the price go up.
