SUMMARY ¾ Innumeracy Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Conseuences From the author of the national bestseller Innumeracy a delightful exploration and explanation of ma. This was an interesting trip through the mathematical theory landscape Paulos introduces a number of fairly complex mathematical concepts with only 4 or 5 pages each There were a few that I had not heard of In particular I think the applications of Russell s paradox offer a number of intriguing applications when applied to the social sciences He synthesizes the theory behind the paradox into simple English that is very digestibleI think what I like best is that he deals with all of the later theory There are tons of books to clearly articulate the work of Euler Pythagoras and before But to get really good stuff on topology and probability with plenty of examples is often a bit harder to find in narrative form I like that he approaches math in a way that is digestible to the masses as math is just a language and should be able to be described as suchIf I were to make one critiue it would be with the flow The chapters do not appear to connect so well It bounces around For example zeno s paradox comes last Fractals are in the middle One final note the time line of great mathematicians is great I generally look these up one at a time but it s really nice to see them in order Monophobia 1 s paradox offer a number of intriguing applications when applied to the The Passionate Lover social Nouns Verbs sciences He Thicker Than Water The Grayson Trilogy #3 synthesizes the theory behind the paradox into Colton Cowboy Standoff Coltons of Roaring Springs #1 simple English that is very digestibleI think what I like best is that he deals with all of the later theory There are tons of books to clearly articulate the work of Euler Pythagoras and before But to get really good Someday Jennifer stuff on topology and probability with plenty of examples is often a bit harder to find in narrative form I like that he approaches math in a way that is digestible to the masses as math is just a language and Friend Fling Forever? suchIf I were to make one critiue it would be with the flow The chapters do not appear to connect Harleuin Medical Romance March 2019 Box Set 1 of 2 so well It bounces around For example zeno The Widow Next Door: The most chilling of new crime thriller books from the USA Today bestseller s paradox comes last Fractals are in the middle One final note the time line of great mathematicians is great I generally look these up one at a time but it The Killer Across the Table see them in order

SUMMARY ¾ Innumeracy Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Conseuences Thematical concepts from algebra to zero in easily accessible alphabetical entries Paulos does for m. 255I probably wouldn t recommend as I m not sure who the target audience for this book is It s basically a collection of short essays on various topics in mathematics I m not sure if it s really accessible enough for people with little maths education and it s a little outdated if you do have maths education That being said I liked how short the chapters are I think the author did a good job explaining things and I learned some new concepts
