Mathematical Fallacies and Paradoxes
Stimulating, thought-provoking analysis of a number of the most interesting intellectual inconsistencies in mathematics, physics, and language. Delightful elucidations of methods for misunderstanding the real world of experiment (Aristotle's Circle paradox), being led astray by algebra (De Morgan's paradox), and other mind-benders. 1982 edition.$7.99
The Kingdom of Infinite Number
Just as bird guides help watchers tell birds apart by their color, songs, and behavior, The Kingdom of Infinite Number is the perfect handbook for identifying numbers in their native habitat. Taking a field guide-like approach, it offers a fresh way of looking at individual numbers and the properties that make them unique, which are also the properties essential for mental computation. The result$4.99
Summary of Carl Boyer's History of the Calculus and its Conceptual Development
In this 309 page book, Carl Boyer takes the reader from the origins of mathematics, where soon geometry and arithmetic became widely used to measure "static" dimensions, to the gestation of calculus as the basic tool to measure "dynamic" events. This required the introduction of the graphic representation of the equations that represent physical events, and a fascinating debate about the rigorous$9.99

A New Aspect of Mathematical Method
A perennial bestseller by eminent mathematician G. Polya, How to Solve It will show anyone in any field how to think straight.In lucid and appealing prose, Polya reveals how the mathematical method of demonstrating a proof or finding an unknown can be of help in attacking any problem that can be "reasoned" out--from building a bridge to winning a game of anagrams. Generations of readers have$76.99
Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics
Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics approaches the topic of projective geometry as it applies to radiation physics and attempts to negate its negative reputation. With an original outlook and transversal approach, the book emphasizes common geometric properties and their potential transposition between domains. After defining both radiation and geometric properties,$8.99

What Is Mathematics?:An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods
For more than two thousand years a familiarity with mathematics has been regarded as an indispensable part of the intellectual equipment of every cultured person. Today, unfortunately, the traditional place of mathematics in education is in grave danger. The teaching and learning of mathematics has degenerated into the realm of rote memorization, the outcome of which leads to satisfactory formal$8.69
