Summary and Info
The History of Mathematics is a fascinating survey of the development of math through discovery, innovation, collaboration, and experimentation. The set presents a compelling overview of myriad aspects of mathematics using understandable language and appealing line illustrations and photographs. Mathematics and the Laws of Nature is an insightful examination of the pioneering ideas, works, and applications that have made mathematics the language of science. Author John Tabak looks at the many ways in which so-called pure math has been used in the applied sciences. For example, he explores how mathematical theories contributed to the development of Kepler's laws of planetary motion as well as to combustion modeling and hydrodynamics. The book gives students insight into the ways that math is used to explain the world around them, offering many examples that show how nature can be descibed mathematically and how the physical sciences and math connect. Mathematics and the Laws of Nature includes an index, a chronology of notable events, a glossary of terms, a helpful list of Internet resources, and an array of historical and current print sources for further research. Keyed to current principles and standards in teaching math, The History of Mathematics set is essential for young readers who require information on relevant topics in mathematics.
