Ќазвание: Mathematics. Its Magic and Mystery
јвтор: Bakst A.
There was a time when mathematics was regarded as an intricate subject that could be mastered only by the elite of the scholarly world. Fortunately, this day is long passed. We now know that anyone with a taste for figures and an interest in reading can find a vast enjoyment in the symmetry and harmony of basic mathematics and in the solving of mathematical problems.
This book is designed to make mathematics interesting. The science is not treated formally; abstract conceptions and uninteresting and abstruse procedures are completely avoided; yet at the same time the book is sufficiently complete so as to give a broad picture of mathematical fundamentals. Mathematics, in order to be appreciated by those who do not have a flare for the intangible must be seen in the light of its versatility in the various fields of human endeavor. This is very much the central theme of this book.
