New! Math for 55+

New! Math for 55+
4 sessions, 6 hours

 
 
This course will re-introduce you to basic mathematical principles including algebra. The goal of this course is to simplify matters so you can again feel confident using math in your everyday life. Principles you will learn include number theory, rules of divisibility, mental computation, and most importantly, why things work the way they do. You may even find yourself able to help your children or grandchildren with the modern math concepts taught in schools today that seem so unusual to many of us who were taught math decades ago.

  1. If I may leave a comment about the above graphic that goes with this course’s description: No fancy formulae! Instead, you’ll see much simpler stuff that will encourage you to think of mathematics in a “different” way so that you’ll be able to use it efficiently in your daily life.
