Fantastic Text on MathematicsUser Review - Christianbook.com
Mathematics. Who ever knew they could be so fascinating? This book was written not only with mathematics in view, but history. History is one subject that has always fascinated me, and John Tiner Hudson actually managed to rope me into enjoying a text of mathematical equations by how he presented the material! Some of the topics I especially enjoyed were: The history of the calendar and seasons. Here, the author explores the mathematics behind our calendar. Almost everyone knows about the Gregorian and the Julian calendar, but did you know that the math that is required to set us on the right track with our current calendar is still just a little bit off? I didn't, but in a couple hundred years we will have to adjust it or our days won't line up! The largeness of numbers. Kids (and adults!) are always fascinated by this one. Wondering what the largest number is? It's a googolplexian! It is the number one followed by a googolplex of zeros. Of course, also included in the section is who and how this name came to be! Great historical math geniuses, including Archimedes, Galileo, Kepler, Newton etc., are covered in detail and many of the problems that they solved or attempted to solve were included. Throughout the book, puzzles such as magic cubes and the seven Königsberg bridges are detailed out and students will very much enjoy looking through the formulas and attempting to solve these famous puzzles themselves. John Tiner Hudson has created a fantastic resource for parents. This is THE perfect supplemental material. He has managed to create a fantastic read that is easy enough for a fifth grader to understand, but with enough data for a middle or high school student to benefit from. The author has further aided the usability of the book by including text problems at the end of the chapter as well as working through problems "real time" right in the text for the student. I would say most of the actual problems would be intended for a the higher end of student, bu ...
