The task he has undertaken however is a difficult one. Nov 24, Eric rated it it was amazing. It was only within the last thirty years or so that a definition of mathematics emerged on which most mathematicians now agree: Return to Book Page. An excellent reminder of how awesome math can be. Refresh and try again.
Oct 03, Freyja rated it really liked it Shelves: Entertaining but not practical for classroom use. A good introduction to mathematics in general, gives the big picture and explains what is mathematics all about, it’s not just about numbers. Still, I did enjoy reading this book, and learned a few things in the process. Most of it is accessible to anyone with little or no math background, but there are highly technical sections. And yet, I didn’t feel it was “sparkly” enough to appeal to students.

Maybe it was the influence of the NyQuil haze, so perhaps that’s not quite fair. Such an undertaking would be, in a sense, near impossible without a cogent understanding of exactly what a pattern is in the first place.
With a background in engineering, I didn’t have much trouble following the explanations but I’m not sure those without a reasonable math background would find it as accessible. But i enjoyed very much insights into the number theory, topology and the history of Math.
Unfortunately, in his presentation of this massive amount of data, he lacks any kind of metaphysical or over arching ideal by which we can grasp that mathematics is real.

The Language of Mathematics: Making the Invisible Visible by Keith J. Devlin
Jan 17, Tomi J rated devkin really liked it. To do this would require a more concise approach, directed by principles. I liked this book. Jun 08, Bryan rated it liked it. No trivia or quizzes yet. I do have an issue with his organization. Devlin does not, however, jazyi that all patterns are explainable in mathematics, just that math is so applicable. It gives a good explanation to all branches of mathematics, telling its history and explaining the main theorems in every branch and how it was developed.
If we were to take mathematics as being as real as the universe, we would have to see a mathematical proof of it somehow. This is popular book, so pretty much all-prose. Full of light and simplified explanations of deep and purely scientific subjects as well as daily life “for granted” themes that most of us don’t even think of for a second to see what’s behind, conceptually.
Be the first to ask a question about The Language of Mathematics. I wouldn’t recommend it to people advanced in maths, but rather to beginners. The rest is details.

The narrative connects various dots folks and theories across the space-time continuum. Right off the bat the author says it. The narrative connects various dots folks and theories The book is an matemstiky journey through the history of mathematics that touches upon and connects discoveries and inventions in number theory, reasoning logiccalculus, shape geometriesposition topologysymmetry groupsprobability, and finally universe atomic particles, quantum theory, etc.
