Mathematics Appreciation

£9.99

Product description

"In the process of studying or teaching mathematics, we often are so intent on the particular subject matter of a specific course, we neglect to take time to experience the nature of mathematics, its relation to other disciplines, and its beauty. Mathematics has so many facets which touch the different realms of the universe, of the earth, and of our lives. This book seeks to introduce you to some of the special and different areas in which mathematics appears and has influence. I hope it will help enhance your appreciation of mathematics.
