Publisher Synopsis

This book is a delightful journey through a lot of stimulating mathematics. Throughout the book, the pleasure of doing mathematics comes through powerfully... If this book cannot help to bring a lost soul back to mathematics, then nothing will. * Colin Foster, Mathematics in School * A unique, accessible approach... Recommended. * D. Z. Spicer, CHOICE * This is an interesting take on the popular math book... I think this book is very well done. * Allen Stenger, MAA Reviews * With her experience in teaching mathematics and her research in mathematical education, Lara Alcock has composed this book discussing some simple mathematics for the layperson or a fresh university student. As she is not constrained by any curricular prescription, she is freewheeling by association through the mathematical topics. The content pays special attention to those issues that she has experienced as stumbling stones for students. * EMS * Attempting to write a text which introduces a range of ideas that build from arithmetic and go on to encompass number theory and geometry, for a broad and diverse audience, is a bold move. Yet this book does this rather well through an almost conversational style of writing, and one that allows the personal perspectives, experiences and opinions of the author to shine through... Throughout, examples are very well used to make links between the fundamentalmathematical ideas and introduce the terminology that is vital to understanding our discipline. * Michael Gove, London Mathematical Society * Read more...
