1.0 Welcome to Succeed with Math!
Why study math? There are at least three reasons:
- There is a lot of evidence that people who are numerate — that is, people who aren’t afraid of figures and are happy discussing data — are much more likely to advance in their careers and earn more than those who are intimidated by the very thought of working with numbers.
- Math is a lot of fun — you’ll find puzzles and fun stuff in Succeed with Math that you can use to impress your friends and family.
- And, most important, math is a fundamental and beautiful subject, a key to understanding the universe and ourselves.
