Arithmetic factors into our lives on a daily basis, so it’s hard to imagine a world without the six basic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, raising to powers, and finding roots. Readers will get a solid overview of arithmetic, while offering useful examples of how they are used in routine activities, such as social media applications. It reinforces Common Core math standards, including understanding basic math concepts and how they apply to students’ daily lives and challenges. A history of arithmetic helps provide a contextual framework for the course of its development and the practical needs that drove its use.
