Cocktail Party Mathematics Mathematics, when explained well, should be simple and elegant, and as fun as a riddle or a puzzle. Having been in mathematics for thirty years, there’s not a single interesting math book that reaches out to the average person to open up his or her mind to the joy of math.

A nice book, but not as stunning as his "brilliant blunders". This book suffers from "confirmation bias", the author repeatedly citing examples from everywhere to bolster his central argument that the god is a mathematician, while deliberately avoiding claims against.

This book is sorta philosophical, and does not contain any by:   This rich book will be interesting to mathematically minded readers who are inspired by nature."--Will Wilson, Duke University "In A Mathematical Nature Walk, John Adam encourages readers to explore everyday observations of the natural world from a mathematical point of view.

Inside, you will find hidden gems of logic, geometry, and prob/5(49). —Good Book Guide "The dedicated reader stands a lot to gain from delving into the text and thinking hard about the problems posed.

As the saying goes, 'mathematics is not a spectator sport,' so if this book is read with pencil and paper at hand, to scribble along and confirm understanding of the mathematical trains of thought—all the better.". Mathematical hero: the movie Documentary celebrates the first woman to win a Fields Medal.

By Davide Castelvecchi M aryam Mirzakhani broke into the exclusive club of top mathematics prizewinners in It was a momentous occasion: whether because of committee biases or the gauntlet of systemic obstacles and social.

This book on Mathematics which focuses on Calculus consists of four units. It covers the basic concepts of the differential and integral calculus of functions of a single variable.

It also covers sequences of real numbers and infinite series of both real numbers and of some special functions. chapter 1/ The Academic Language of Mathematics 2 (e.g., 13 different terms are used to signify subtraction).

Students must also learn similar terms with different meanings (e.g., percent vs. percentage) and they must comprehend mul- tiple ways of expressing terms orally (e.g., (2x y)/x2 can be “two x plus y over x squared” and “the sum of two x and y divided by the square of x.

I've taught calculus often, but still learned much from this book. The mathematics behind the development of the drug cocktail that halted the devastation of the AIDS epidemic is a great example. In the early 90s scientists started finding the first effective treatments for the disease.

The ability to. Variables and Connectives Propositional logic is a formal mathematical system whose syntax is rigidly specified.

Every statement in propositional logic consists of propositional variables combined via logical connectives. Each variable represents some proposition, such as “You wanted it”. The book contains several short write-ups on interesting mathematical concepts like Chaos Theory, Pi, Euler’s constant (e), Riemann Hypothesis etc.

Additionally, the book is full of lots of mathematical puzzles. For instance, a puzzle on page 22 is about extracting a cherry from a cocktail glass made of matchsticks (shown adjacent). Readers of this book are indeed armed with enough riddles and stories to last cocktail parties.
