One Mathematical Cat, Please!
Empowering Students to Teach Themselves Mathematics

Mae cyfathrebu yn allweddol i lwyddiant.

Have trouble reading that? When you don't understand a language, you don't have access to the ideas in that language, even when the ideas are simple. Not understanding a language creates a lot of stress. When authors weed out ‘cryptic’ math language and replace it with English, a problem emerges: English isn't designed to say what mathematicians need to say. Carol's free online book One Mathematical Cat, Please! takes the time to teach the structure of the mathematical language, so people are taught how to teach themselves mathematics while they're learning it.
