A Quick History of Maths From Counting Cavemen to Big Data

Author: Clive Gifford Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/04/2020

Maths + history + jokes - boring bits = A Quick History of Maths. This book begins around 43,000 years ago with a notched baboon leg, the Lebombo bone (the very first mathematical object in the world) and rushes us past Hindu numerals and the invention of zero, via Pythagoras, Pascal and probability, right up to the present day, with big data and the maths that rules our digital lives. Geometri-cool! You will discover: How to count on your fingers (there are more ways than you might think!) Why we have 60 seconds in a minute (hint: it's to do with the ancient Babylonians) How to count like an Egyptian (using hieroglyphs) Why it's hip to be square using square numbers A Pythagorean party trick The naked truth of Archimedes' bath time mathematics How to do matha-magic with magic squares ...and much more. In chronological order from pre-history to present day, this is the story of maths itself. It's 43,000 years of human mathematical endeavor squeezed into one book for your reading pleasure. Illustrated with funny cartoons and packed with fascinating facts, you'll be laughing and learning how to be a better mathematician.

Mathematics Frontiers 1950 to the Present

Mathematics Frontiers 1950 to the Present

Author: Michael J. Bradley Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

Tracing the development of mathematics from a biographical standpoint, Mathematics Frontiers: 1950 to the Present profiles innovators from the second half of the 20th century who made significant discoveries in both pure and applied mathematics. From John H. Conway, who helped complete the classification of all finite groups (and invented The Game of Life board game), to Stephen Hawking, who established the mathematical basis for black holes, to Fan Chung, who developed an encoding and decoding algorithm for cell phone calls, this lively survey of contemporary minds behind the math is ideal for middle and high school students seeking resources for research or general interest.

The Age of Genius 1300 to 1800

The Age of Genius 1300 to 1800

Author: Michael J. Bradley Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

Although mathematical innovation stagnated in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire, scholars in southern Asia and the Middle East continued to preserve the mathematical writings of the Greeks and contributed new ideas to arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as astronomy and physics. The five centuries from CE 1300 to 1800 marked the end of a rich period of cultural, mathematical, and scientific advancements in China, India, and Arabic countries, while witnessing new intellectual life in Europe and the Western Hemisphere. The Age of Genius acquaints middle and high school students with the lives and contributions of 10 intriguing but perhaps lesser-known mathematical pioneers of this time. Included here, for example, is a portrait of 14th-century Iranian mathematician Ghiyath al-Din Jamshid Mas'ud al-Kashi, who developed and improved methods for approximating numerical values, and introduced geometrical methods for determining areas and volumes of architectural domes, arches, and vaults.
