A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science Audiobook

A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science

Author: Michael S. Schneider Narrator: Al Kessel Release Date: June 2020

Michael Schneider leads us on a spectacular, lavishly illustrated journey along the numbers one through ten to explore the mathematical principles made visible in flowers, shells, crystals, plants, and the human body, expressed in the symbolic language of folk sayings and fairy tales, myth and religion, art and architecture. This is a new view of mathematics, not the one we learned at school but a comprehensive guide to the patterns that recur through the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe shows you: ● Why cans, pizza, and manhole covers are round. ● Why one and two weren't considered numbers by the ancient Greeks. ● Why squares show up so often in goddess art and board games. ● What property makes the spiral the most widespread shape in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies. ● How the human body shares the design of a bean plant and the solar system. ● And much more.

Topology: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Topology: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Richard Earl Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: June 2020

How is a subway map different from other maps? What makes a knot knotted? What makes the Möbius strip one-sided? These are questions of topology, the mathematical study of properties preserved by twisting or stretching objects. In the 20th century topology became as broad and fundamental as algebra and geometry, with important implications for science, especially physics. In this Very Short Introduction, Richard Earl gives a sense of the more visual elements of topology (looking at surfaces) as well as covering the formal definition of continuity. Considering some of the eye-opening examples that led mathematicians to recognize a need for studying topology, he pays homage to the historical people, problems, and surprises that have propelled the growth of this field.

Über Sinn und Bedeutung und andere Schriften Audiobook

Über Sinn und Bedeutung und andere Schriften

Author: Gottlob Frege Narrator: Patrick Beck Release Date: June 2020

'Einer der größten abendländischen Denker überhaupt, ein Denker vom Rang und der Tiefe eines Leibniz.' So nannte der Philosoph Heinrich Scholz den 1848 in Wismar geborenen und 1925 in Bad Kleinen verstorbenen Mathematiker, Logiker und Philosophen Gottlob Frege. Mittlerweile legendär ist Gottlob Freges Unterscheidung von Sinn und Bedeutung am Beispiel des Planeten Venus: 'Es würde die Bedeutung von Abendstern und Morgenstern dieselbe sein, aber nicht der Sinn.' Das vorliegende Hörbuch vereint vier wichtige Schriften Gottlob Freges: 'Über Sinn und Bedeutung' - Hier differenziert und entfaltet Frege die zentralen Begriffe Sinn, Bedeutung, Gedanke und Vorstellung. 'Über Begriff und Gegenstand' - Eine Ergänzung und Fortführung zu 'Über Sinn und Bedeutung', hier werden entsprechend dem Titel die Begriffe Begriff und Gegenstand entfaltet. 'Über die wissenschaftliche Berechtigung einer Begriffsschrift' - Hier erläutert Frege die Notwendigkeit der Einführung einer Kunstsprache für die Wissenschaften, seiner Begriffsschrift. 'Was ist eine Funktion?' - Frege nähert sich hier dem für die Mathematik so wichtigen Begriff der Funktion. Gottlob Frege hat sowohl für die heutige Philosophie als auch für die moderne Logik die entscheidenden Grundlagen gelegt. Nebenbei bemerkt: Ohne seine Arbeit wären Programmiersprachen heute kaum denkbar. Dieses Hörbuch ist ein Muss.

Mathematics for Human Flourishing Audiobook

Mathematics for Human Flourishing

Author: Francis Su Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: May 2020

An inclusive vision of mathematics-its beauty, its humanity, and its power to build virtues that help us all flourish For mathematician Francis Su, a society without mathematical affection is like a city without concerts, parks, or museums. To miss out on mathematics is to live without experiencing some of humanity's most beautiful ideas. In this profound book, written for a wide audience but especially for those disenchanted by their past experiences, an award-winning mathematician and educator weaves parables, puzzles, and personal reflections to show how mathematics meets basic human desires-such as for play, beauty, freedom, justice, and love-and cultivates virtues essential for human flourishing. These desires and virtues, and the stories told here, reveal how mathematics is intimately tied to being human. Some lessons emerge from those who have struggled, including philosopher Simone Weil, whose own mathematical contributions were overshadowed by her brother's, and Christopher Jackson, who discovered mathematics as an inmate in a federal prison. Christopher's letters to the author appear throughout the book and show how this intellectual pursuit can-and must-be open to all.

Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students' Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and  Audiobook

Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students' Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and

Author: Jo Boaler Narrator: Pearl Hewitt Release Date: March 2020

Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success Mathematical Mindsets provides practical strategies and activities to help teachers and parents show all children, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, that they can enjoy and succeed in math. Jo Boaler-Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning-has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students. There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all.

The Mathematics of the Gods and the Algorithms of Men: A Cultural History Audiobook

The Mathematics of the Gods and the Algorithms of Men: A Cultural History

Author: Paolo Zellini Narrator: Mark Elstob Release Date: February 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. The complexity of mathematics - its abstract rules and obscure symbols - can seem very distant from the everyday. There are those things that are real and present, it is supposed, and then there are mathematical concepts: creations of our mind, mysterious tools for those unengaged with the world. Yet, from its most remote history and deepest purpose, mathematics has served not just as a way to understand and order, but also as a foundation for the reality it describes. In this elegant book, mathematician and philosopher Paolo Zellini offers a brief cultural and intellectual history of mathematics, ranging widely from the paradoxes of ancient Greece to the sacred altars of India, from Mesopotamian calculus to our own contemporary obsession with algorithms. Masterful and illuminating, The Mathematics of the Gods and the Algorithms of Men transforms our understanding of mathematical thinking, showing that it is inextricably linked with the philosophical and the religious as well as the mundane - and, indeed, with our own very human experience of the universe. © Paolo Zellini 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

The Number Mysteries: A Mathematical Odyssey through Everyday Life Audiobook

The Number Mysteries: A Mathematical Odyssey through Everyday Life

Author: Marcus Du Sautoy Narrator: James Bryce Release Date: November 2019

From the author of 'The Music of the Primes' and 'Finding Moonshine' comes a short, lively book on five mathematical problems that just refuse be solved - and on how many everyday problems can be solved by maths. Every time we download a song from Itunes, take a flight across the Atlantic or talk on our mobile phones, we are relying on great mathematical inventions. Maths may fail to provide answers to various of its own problems, but it can provide answers to problems that don't seem to be its own - how prime numbers are the key to Real Madrid's success, to secrets on the Internet and to the survival of insects in the forests of North America. In 'The Number Mysteries', Marcus du Sautoy explains how to fake a Jackson Pollock; how to work out whether or not the universe has a hole in the middle of it; how to make the world's roundest football. He shows us how to see shapes in four dimensions - and how maths makes you a better gambler. He tells us about the quest to predict the future - from the flight of asteroids to an impending storm, from bending a ball like Beckham to predicting population growth. It's a book to dip in to; a book to challenge and puzzle - and a book that gives us answers.

Measurement Audiobook

Measurement

Author: Paul Lockhart Narrator: Kyle Tait Release Date: September 2019

For seven years, Paul Lockhart's A Mathematician's Lament enjoyed a samizdat-style popularity in the mathematics underground, before demand prompted its 2009 publication to even wider applause and debate. An impassioned critique of K-12 mathematics education, it outlined how we shortchange students by introducing them to math the wrong way. Here Lockhart offers the positive side of the math education story by showing us how math should be done. Measurement offers a permanent solution to math phobia by introducing us to mathematics as an artful way of thinking and living. In conversational prose that conveys his passion for the subject, Lockhart makes mathematics accessible without oversimplifying. He makes no more attempt to hide the challenge of mathematics than he does to shield us from its beautiful intensity. Favoring plain English over jargon and formulas, he succeeds in making complex ideas about the mathematics of shape and motion intuitive and graspable. His elegant discussion of mathematical reasoning and themes in classical geometry offers proof of his conviction that mathematics illuminates art as much as science. Measurement is an invitation to summon curiosity, courage, and creativity in order to experience firsthand the playful excitement of mathematical work.

Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe Audiobook

Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe

Author: Steven Strogatz Narrator: Bob Souer Release Date: August 2019

Without calculus, we wouldn't have cell phones, TV, GPS, or ultrasound. We wouldn't have unraveled DNA or discovered Neptune or figured out how to put 5,000 songs in your pocket. Though many of us were scared away from this essential, engrossing subject in high school and college, Steven Strogatz's brilliantly creative, down to earth history shows that calculus is not about complexity; it's about simplicity. It harnesses an unreal number-infinity-to tackle real world problems, breaking them down into easier ones and then reassembling the answers into solutions that feel miraculous. Infinite Powers recounts how calculus tantalized and thrilled its inventors, starting with its first glimmers in ancient Greece and bringing us right up to the discovery of gravitational waves. Strogatz reveals how this form of math rose to the challenges of each age: how to determine the area of a circle with only sand and a stick; how to explain why Mars goes 'backwards' sometimes; how to turn the tide in the fight against AIDS. As Strogatz proves, calculus is truly the language of the universe. By unveiling the principles of that language, Infinite Powers makes us marvel at the world anew.
