More About Numbers by Alfred S. Posamentier; Bernd Thaller
 
 
 
Overview
Did you grow up thinking math is boring? It's time to reconsider. This book will teach you everything you ever wondered about numbers--and more.
How and why did human beings first start using numbers at the dawn of history? Would numbers exist if we Homo sapiens weren't around to discover them? What's so special about weird numbers like pi and the Fibonacci sequence? What about rational, irrational, real, and imaginary numbers? Why do we need them?
Two veteran math educators explain it all in ways even the most math phobic will find appealing and understandable.
You'll never look at those squiggles on your calculator the same again.
