Overview

Math Stuff by Theoni Pappas

Whether it's stuff in your kitchen or garden, stuff that powers your car or your body, stuff that helps you work, communicate or play, or stuff that you've never heard of you can bet that mathematics is there.

MATH STUFF brings it all in the open in the Pappas style.

Not many people think of mathematics as fascinating, exciting and invaluable. Yet Pappas writes about math ideas in such a way that conveys its often overlooked fascination, excitement, and worth. MATH STUFF deals with 38 topics in an non-threatening way that piques our curiosities. Open the book at random, and learn about such topics as: what a holyhedron is, how computers get stressed, how e-paper will work, how codes and numbers work with our bodies.

By the end of this book you will think "Mathematics is the stuff that dreams are made of."
