9780883857700: Rediscovering Mathematics: You Do the Math


Rediscovering Mathematics is aimed at a general audience and addresses the question of how best to teach and study mathematics.  The book attempts to bring the exciting and dynamic world of mathematics to a non-technical audience.  With so much focus today on how best to educate the new generation and make mathematics less rote and more interactive, this book is an eye-opening experience for many people who suffered with dull math teachers and curricula.

Rediscovering Mathematics is an eclectic collection of mathematical topics and puzzles aimed at talented youngsters and inquisitive adults who want to expand their view of mathematics. By focusing on problem solving, and discouraging rote memorization, the book shows how to learn and teach mathematics through investigation, experimentation, and discovery. Rediscovering Mathematics is also an excellent text for training math teachers at all levels.

Topics range in difficulty and cover a wide range of historical periods, with some examples demonstrating how to uncover mathematics in everyday life, including:

  • number theory and its application to secure communication over the Internet,
  • the algebraic and combinatorial work of a medieval mathematician Rabbi,
  • and applications of probability to sports, casinos, and gambling.
Rediscovering Mathematics provides a fresh view of mathematics for those who already like the subject, and offers a second chance for those who think they don't.
