Albers (Author), Gerald L. Alexanderson (Author), Constance Reid (Editor) & 0 more out of 5 stars 1 ratingCited by: The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical developments have come to light only in a few locales.

According to Mikhail B. Sevryuk, in the January issue of the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, "The number of papers and books included in the Mathematical Reviews database since (the first year of operation of MR) is now more than million, and more than 75 thousand items are added to the database each year.

Collected by two mathematicians respected in the community for their skill in communicating mathematical topics to a broader audience, the book is also rich with photographs and includes an introduction by Philip J. Davis/5(2). Volume One focuses on moments of mathematical discovery experienced by Thales, Pythagoras, Hypatia, Galileo, Pascal, and others.

Volume Two dramatizes the lives of Omar Khayyam, Albert Einstein, Ada Lovelace, and others/5(53). Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma, “knowledge, study, learning”) is the study of topics such as quantity (numbers), structure, space, and change.

Mathematicians seek out patterns and use them to formulate new conjectures. Summary: A collection of interviews with, and profiles of, some of the most prestigious mathematicians of the 20th century.

The chapters tell, in the mathematicians' own words, how they became interested in mathematics and chose their speciality. The book also covers their hobbies and personal lives. Mathematics has witnessed some of the most genius brains pondering over complex problems and solving them to unravel mysteries of Universe, science, and life.

The world salutes the great mathematicians and their contributions. There is certainly no end to the series of such great people, whose works created the platform for others to produce seminal works in mathematics. For other books, the math might not be so obvious, as is the case with Blueberries for Sal, by Robert McCloskey.

As Sal drops blueberries into her pail — "kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk" — you can help make a connection by showing your child a "pail and blueberries" (a tin can and marbles work well).
