Mathematics for the Million: How to Master the Magic of Numbers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking only the most elementary knowledge for granted, Lancelot Hogben leads readers of this famous book through the whole course from simple arithmetic to calculus. His illuminating explanation is addressed to the person who wants to understand the place of mathematics in modern civilization but who has been intimidated by its supposed difficulty. Mathematics is the language of size, shape, and order--a language Hogben shows one can both master and enjoy.

Synopsis:

"It makes alive the contents of the elements of mathematics."--Albert Einstein

Description:

Extensively revised with additional material and completely re-illustrated.
