Description

Each topic is presented in a lavishly illustrated spread, including formulas, fascinating facts about scientists' lives and real-world applications of the theorems. Sue van Hattum popped in again to add a recommendation for The Cat in Numberland by Ivan Ekeland, a picture book about a cat.

This book sets out to prove that it can, through a selection of short articles on surprising maths in everyday life. e" The Story of a Number is written in terms that can be understood by complete novices who have no formal learning or interest in maths. It covers every aspect of studying for a mathematics degree, from the most abstract intellectual challenges to the everyday business of interacting with lecturers and making good use of study time. A Mathematicians Apology was written by the one of the century's finest mathematical thinkers who dedicated his time to pure mathematics and all its problems and theories.Many do not consider mathematics as a recreational subject but Martin Gardiner has transformed what was once considered a serious subject into one that we mere mortals can understand.

Bernard Riemann solved the enigma in 1859 but unfortunately he never published the detail of his findings and all his work that proved his theory was destroyed in a fire. Snowflake, Seashell, Star is an incredible celebration of the overlaps between mathematics and art, learning and play, concentration and calm. Subjects include such topics as the psychology of lottery players, the fair division of a cake, why two soap bubbles blown one after the other are different in size plus many more riddles and puzzles. Readers with only middle school mathematics will develop their algorithmic problem-solving skills through puzzles at the elementary level, while seasoned puzzle solvers will enjoy the challenge of thinking through more difficult puzzles.As you can probably tell from the title of this book it deals with prime numbers and their mysteries.

Starting with the theories of Einstein and Newton then moving along to more recent theories this fascinating book introduces those of us who know little of the cosmos, physics or questions regarding our existence to these subjects in clear language that is wholly understandable. There is a detailed commentary at the end of the book, giving solutions and explanations, together with the occasional follow-up problem. As a top maths scholar, did she ever feel her brain could be better utilised than it is on a popular show?Chaos is what happens when the behaviour of a system gets too complicated to predict; the most familiar example is the weather, which apparently cannot be forecast accurately more than five days ahead. In 1963, a schoolboy browsing in his local library stumbled across the world's greatest mathematical problem: Fermat's Last Theorem, a puzzle that every child can understand but which has baffled mathematicians for over 300 years. This is merely a guideline and you are welcome to make your own judgements on whether or not a book is suitable. Higgins poses entertaining puzzles and questions tempting the reader to ponder math problems with imagination instead of dread. Even the best students find it challenging, and those who are unprepared often find it incomprehensible at first.
