The Big Questions: Mathematics
In Big Questions: Mathematics, Tony Crilly answers the 20 key questions:What is math for? Where do numbers come from? Why are primes the atoms of maths? Which are the strangest numbers? Are imaginary numbers real? How big is infinity? Where do parallel lines meet? What is the math of the universe? Are statistics lies? Can math guarantee riches? Is there a formula for everything? Why are three50 Mathematical Ideas You Really Need to Know
Just the mention of mathematics is enough to strike fear into the hearts of many, yet without it, the human race couldn't be where it is today. By exploring the subject through its 50 key insights--from the simple (the number one) and the subtle (the invention of zero) to the sophisticated (proving Fermat's last theorem)--this book shows how mathematics has changed the way we look at the world200 Key Concepts Explained In An Instant
Paul Glendinning is Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester. He was founding Head of School for Mathematics at the combined University of Manchester and has published over fifty academic articles and an undergraduate textbook on chaos theory. Both simple and accessible, Math in Minutes is a visually led introduction to 200 key mathematical concepts. Each concept isOfficial Guide to Mastering the DSST--Fundamentals of College Algebra
A part of Peterson's Official Guide to Mastering the DSST Exams-- Fundamentals of College Algebra helps nontraditional students earn college credits for life and learning experiences, with a diagnostic test, subject review, and post-test (with detailed answer explanations) for this popular DSST exam: Fundamentals of College Algebra. Topics include fundamental algebraic operations, rationalSummary 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 rigorousThe 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 resultWhy Is It So Hard To Learn Math?
If you are having difficulty learning math, you already know you are not alone. Many people struggle with math. In fact, it is the one discipline in which low grades and low performance are almost universally acceptable because they are so common. For example, a parent is more likely to excuse a lower report card grade in math than in any other subject because that parent probably got lower gradesHow to Solve the Da Vinci Code
Can you outrun a bullet? How do you build an electronic brain? Could you slow down time? How do you unleash chaos? From Plato's classification of regular polyhedra to making a million on the stock market, How to Solve the Da Vinci Code gives you everything you need to understand how numbers work, and the impact they have on our lives every day.SAT Math Level 2 Subject Test Guide: The PhD Tutor Method 2013 Edition Part Two

The Secret Strategy For Learning Math: The One Thing You Must Understand
Aristotle wrote, "Well begun is half done." This is especially true for anyone struggling with learning math. Math is a different kind of subject from all the rest and requires that you understand the differences. If you don't, you will give up too soon and never master math. If you know the secret strategy and apply it from the beginning, you stand a better chance of developing good habits and a100 Great Problems of Elementary Mathematics
