These examples can serve to broaden the nation's mathematics education programs to encompass the dual objectives of preparing students for the worlds of work and of higher education.

Countless math books are published each year, however only a tiny percentage of these titles are destined to become the kind of classics that are loved the world over by students and mathematicians.

Within this page, you’ll find an extensive list of math books that have sincerely earned the reputation that precedes them. For many of the most important branches of mathematics, we’ve.

This book is really an introduction to the philosophy of math. It is concerned with WHY we do math, and why math takes the form that it does. Whitehead's goal is to introduce some key concepts, common to all math, such as variables and abstraction. Any actual proofs or expositions in the book are included only as examples of how these concepts Cited by: An Introduction to Teaching Mathematics at the College Level Suzanne Kelton Assumption College.

A big fat book that has, of late, been sitting on the shelf in front of me is titled What is Mathematics. That book and this one should switch titles. When a student puts down What is Mathematics. they will know how to do various types of math problems, but not what math is. And when a student puts down this book, they will have a general idea of what math is, and wont be able to solve any 4/5.
