For those who actually want to learn more math, but find traditional education lacking, I recommend this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Mathematics-Birth-Numbers-Jan-Gullberg...

It's filled with a lot of history on why things are as they are and it builds up a substantial base of math knowledge from there. I can't comment on whether the additional background information would help someone who is math shy to "get it" but, from the parts I read, it certainly rounded out (and expanded) my knowledge.
