For Math Aficionados From All Walks of Life! The Little Green Math Book reads like a collection of math recipes to help us blend problems, principles, and approaches in creating our own lineup of splendid math cuisine. The book's four chapters include: (1) Basic Numeracy Ingredients, (2) Wonderful Math Recipes, (3) Favorite Numeracy Dishes, and (4) Special Math Garnishments. Along with 30 of the most fundamental, recurring math principles and rules, readers will find a three-tier system to rate the difficulty level of all 100 problems – one chili ("mild"), two chilies ("hot"), and three chilies ("very hot").
