Ann Dooms - Math

A Walk Through the Wonderful World of Mathematics

SCIENCE

Jump to: Book details | About the author | Table of contents

For a child, math equals arithmetic, while a teenager thinks about the struggles with trigonometry and equations. And adults often have the idea, ‘what was all that math at school necessary?’.

But math is usually the invisible, beating heart in most aspects of our daily lives. Professor Ann Dooms wants to share the power and beauty of math with the common public and presents a tasty buffet of what math has to offer in this book.

From eternal truths to computers, from counting on your fingers to browsing through Netflix and Google, from looking in the mirror to calling and paying with your cell phone, from gazing at the stars to taking a selfie, and from computer games to artificial intelligence.

You will be amazed how the author succeeds in breathing new life into logic, limits, irrational numbers, equations, derivatives, integrals, and probabilities.
