I found it to be quite interesting, despite my already knowing quite a bit about the topics being covered. IamcomingacrossnewmathswhichIhaven'tcoveredbeforeandamfindingitdifficulttolearnitfromtheedexcelbookfromscratch. Topics include how to detect an art forgery, winning strategies in Monopoly, and how to crack a code.

Many illustrations and examples illuminate classic aspects of the subject as well as recent advances. In lucid and appealing prose, Polya reveals how the mathematical method of demonstrating a proof or finding an unknown can be of help in attacking any problem that can be "reasoned" out - from building a bridge to winning a game of anagrams. In this book Sydney Padua transforms one of the most compelling scientific collaborations into a hilarious set of adventures, starring Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage. The theory of chaos has been studied and discussed for decades, while Does God Play Dice (the title comes from an Einstein quote) brings the theory right up to date offering a brilliant insight into a very complex subject .In this book, Professor Ogilvy demonstrates the mathematical challenege and satisfaction to be had from geometry, the only requirement being two simple implements (straight-edge and compass) and a little thought.

Those students ready to move onto higher Maths study will find this edition not only useful but also fascinating. Other books in the series include: 'Black Holes and Uncle Albert' and 'Uncle Albert and the Quantum Quest'. This is the complete guide to exploring the fascinating world of maths you were never told about at school. misconceptions about the nature of mathematics, Professor Ogilvy takes you on a lively tour of the four basic branches of the subject: number theory, algebra, geometry and analysis. The mathematics shifts in focus from calculation to proof, so students are expected to interact with it in different ways.Written by Brian Clegg this book explains how infinity turns maths upside down demonstrating how 1 can be the same as 0 turning all we understand about maths on its head. This is the reason that this classic book is as readable today as it was when it was written decades ago. So much can be learned by reading and engaging with The Colossal Book of Mathematics, which is a compendium of subjects from the authors many books, brought together in one edition. It's a clearly written book that is ideal for anyone being introduce to partial differential equations for the first time with focus on Laplace's, Heat and Wave Equation.
