Word problems and practical math for the noob and beyond
Hello, I'm new to the forums here. Am hoping someone can recommend a few good word problem books or sites and perhaps give a bit of advise for someone looking to get into math for reasons of fun and practicality. I did fairly well with algebra in school but that was many many moons ago. I started playing chess and go to help keep my middle aged mind active, it seems to me that math would also be a good way to do this as I remember enjoying it somewhat back in school. Also its frustrating not remembering how to solve/answer basic math questions that sometimes come up. I may like to go further then algebra and geometry this time around so any advice or plan on getting started and continuing on the path will be most welcome.
