Useful Mathematical & Physical Formulae Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compact volume of mathematical and physical formulae presented in a concise manner for general use. Collected in this book are commonly used formulae for studies such as quadratics, calculus and trigonometry; in addition are simplified explanations of Newton's Laws of Gravity and Snell's Laws of Refraction. A glossary, a table of mathematical and physical constants, and a listing of Imperial and Metric conversions is also included.

Review:

"The fascinating, informative Wooden Books series blends ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. The books are thin, impeccably designed, and will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovations and postmodern stylings." Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Synopsis:

In all known cultures, men and women studied the four great unchanging liberal arts — number, music, geometry, and cosmology — and used them to inform the practical and decorative arts, like medicine, pottery, agriculture, and building. The metaphysical fields of the liberal arts were considered universal, placed above even physics and religion. Today, though we are surrounded by them in a culture attracted to native and ancient imagery, we are mostly unaware of their presence.

Last spring, Walker & Company published the first three Wooden Books, a series of concise, accessible introductions to timeless sciences and ancient wisdom. With the publication of the next three, it is perhaps not surprising to find many points of connection between them. Elegantly designed and written, printed on recycled paper, they are invaluable sources of information and inspiration.
