Great Math Books

Math-Lament

Great math book list, from the Math Blog! Antonio writes –

A couple of days ago we asked you to tell us about your favorite math book. Now that the results are in, we must say that while some titles were expected, there are quite a few surprises as well. Quite frankly we were blown away by the great list of math books we compiled with your input.

Know any not on their list that’s great? Post up in the comments here!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Thanks; interesting list. Certainly a few new titles I have not seen before, and only a few I’m not convinced are necessarily the best picks, but half of the list (roughly the first half) are titles I have read or recognize and would readily agree with. Ranging from history of mathematics, biographies, and philosophical foundations of mathematics, to gentle introductions for younger readers, and inspiring introductions to higher mathematics (i.e. beyond mere arithmetic and symbol manipulation by rote) for anyone interested.

    No Euclid’s Elements or pop-math trivia books. The world could use more math, of course I see mathematics as the love/sex in science, its the mechanics of where new theories are born, helping to instantiate something real from the thought-stuff of raw ideas.

  2. A few authors that may be of particular interest to Makers for their playful and fun outlook in creativity in mathematics include Clifford Pickover, Martin Gardner (of Mathematical Games column in Scientific American fame), and professor Ian Stewart. They all have produced numerous accessible books and articles primarily on Recreational mathematics.

    I could mention the intriguing _Journal of Recreational Mathematics_ as a playful home to numerous interesting and vexing mathematics article with a puzzle / game bend.
