That’s when I learned that he not only lacked a basic understanding of numbers, but he also saw math as a meaningless exercise that school forced on him.

Much of his problems with math stemmed for his lack of motivation to learn how math could be practical in his own life.So to help my son find math more interesting and enjoyable, I wrote “Math for the Zombie Apocalypse.” By combining straightforward explanations and calculating shortcuts with humor about using math to survive a zombie apocalypse, I found that my son quickly learned how math could be more fun and practical.Written as a parody of a survival guide for a Zombie Apocalypse, “Math for the Zombie Apocalypse” focuses on building a solid knowledge of numbers so readers can understand the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.Rather than rely on the typical dry explanations found in ordinary math textbooks, “Math for the Zombie Apocalypse” shows how to creatively solve math problems by breaking hard problems into smaller, easy problems.

By relying on basic math knowledge and seeing how there are multiple ways to solve any math problem, readers can learn that you can solve any math problem with a little creativity like trying to solve a puzzle.If your children are struggling with math, you might find a math textbook, disguised as a zombie survival guide, can bring back their interest and make math feel less intimidating and threatening when combined with advice for how to dispatch zombies in fun and creative ways.“Math for the Zombie Apocalypse” isn’t your traditional math textbook, and that’s its greatest appeal.

By teaching you how to think about math rather than force you to follow one specific way to solve math problems, this book can inspire you to see math as nothing more than an intellectual problem solving tool that can only help you in all aspects of your life, whether you have to survive a zombie apocalypse or not.Table of ContentsPrefaceChapter 1: The Importance of MathChapter 2: Understanding NumbersChapter 3: The Basics of Addition and SubtractionChapter 4: Addition TricksChapter 5: Subtraction TricksChapter 6: The Basics of MultiplicationChapter 7: Multiplying Large NumbersChapter 8: The Basics of DivisionChapter 9: Long DivisionChapter 10: Short Division and ChunkingChapter 11: Calculating with DecimalsChapter 12: Calculating with FractionsChapter 13: Percentages and the Metric SystemChapter 14: Rounding NumbersChapter 15: Turning Numbers Into DataChapter 16: Continuing Your Math Education
