Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Heart of Mathematics addresses the big ideas of mathematics (many of which are cutting edge research topics) in a non-computational style intended to be read and enjoyed by students and instructors, as well as by motivated general readers. It features an engaging, lively, humorous style full of surprises, games, mind-benders, and all without sacrificing good mathematical thought or relying on mathematical computation or symbols. The authors are award-winning authors, holding awards such as: Distinguished Teaching Award (Burger, from the Mathematical Association of America); Chauvenet Prize (the best expository mathematics writer in the world, Burger, from the MAA) and many others.

Table of Contents

Fun and Games: An Introduction to Rigorous Thought.- Number Contemplation.- Infinity.- Geometric Gems.- Contortions of Space.- Chaos and Fractals.- Taming Uncertainty.- Deciding Wisely: Applications of Rigorous Thought.

If you are finding mathematics difficult to understand give this text a try. Of all the texts I have seen this one does the best job of explaining how to think mathematically. If you are a teacher, TA, or tutor you too may also want to look at this book. If for no other reason then seeing how complex topics can be presented in a simple fashion. I, myself will be looking at any future publication by these two authors.
