Beauty of Mathematics
The primary emphasis of this textbook is to convey some of the great ideas of mathematics and, in addition, to teach effective thinking. A diverse number of topics are covered such as numbers, infinity, geometry, contortions of space, chaos and fractals, uncertainty, and decision making. Numerous illustrations are used to explain key ideas. The writing style is very informal and allows the reader to more easily grasp complex mathematical concepts. Text would be ideal for a liberal arts mathematics course, an enrichment course for high school or middle school teachers, or as a course for advanced high school students. Text comes with 3D glasses and a interactive explorations CD. In summary, the authors have produced a reader/learner friendly text which does a nice job of conveying the beauty of mathematics and effective thinking strategies.
