Sprednja platnica
Oxton House Publishers, 2014 - 262 strani
"Where did maths come from? Who thought up all those algebra symbols, and why? What's the story behind pi? ...negative numbers? ...the metric system? ...quadratic equations? ...sine and cosine? ...logs? The 30 independent sketches and 58-page historical overview in Math through the Ages answer these questions and many others in an informal, easygoing style that's accessible to teachers, students, and anyone who is curious about the history of mathematical ideas."--Page 4 of cover.

Great overview, not too heavy, and fed to you in short chapters on widely varying topics. It includes some problems and projects to further investigate at the end of each chapter. Great for teachers. This may be inspiring to me for programs or just outreach to people facing math homework. Celotno mnenje
