Beast Academy is a full curriculum for students ages 8‑ Each level is split into four units, A‑D. For each unit, there is a Guide book and a Practice book. The Guide books provide comprehensive, rigorous instruction in a fully illustrated textbook written in an engaging, comic-book style. This book is designed for the transition course between calculus and differential equations and the upper division mathematics courses with an emphasis on proof and abstraction. The book has been used by the author and several other faculty at Southern Connecticut State University. There are nine chapters and more than enough material for a semester course.4/5(1).

The book also provides a bridge to the upper-level courses, since we discuss formalities and conventions in detail, including the axiomatic method and how to deal with proofs.

Darting wittily from Euclid to Yeats, from Poincare to Rembrandt, from axioms to symphonies, THE ART OF MATHEMATICS explores the difference between real, rational, and complex numbers; analyzes the intellectual underpinnings of pure and applied mathematics; and reveals the fundamental connection between aesthetics and by: Jerry King has written a serious book about the art of mathematics book of math, and it is one of the best books I've read about math ever.

The thesis of the book is that research mathematicians are artists in that they create something of beauty and elegance in their work as they create new mathematics from logic/5. The DAoM library includes 11 inquiry-based books freely available for classroom use.

These texts can be used as semester-long content for themed courses (e.g. geometry, music and dance, the infinite, games and puzzles), or individual chapters can be used as modules to experiment with inquiry-based learning and to help supplement typical topics with classroom tested, inquiry.

Welcome to Discovering the Art of Mathematics (DAoM) A New Vision The Discovering the Art of Mathematics project provides a wealth of resources to support college faculty in teaching Mathematics for Liberal Arts, including a library of 11 inquiry- based learning books, professional development opportunities, and extensive teacher resources.

Art of Mathematics by Dr. Weihu Hong Author Dr. Weihu Hong, with his book, Art of Mathematics, has brought us a lot of excitement by showing many methods of constructing surfaces with a lot of examples of imagination, based on different methods of constructing surfaces and their applications.

The author, a leading research mathematician, presents a series of engaging and compelling mathematical statements with interesting elementary proofs.

"The book is a wonderful introduction to the relationships between art, mathematics, and philosophy, with exquisite illustrations, creating and deepening interest in these topics for the nonprofessional by: 7.

There is a big need for math resources used in those countries. Proof of that point is the number of unvetted Android and iOS apps created for A-levels, other levels in the "British" system.

Math is so universal that all Bookshare members seeking math training resources would benefit if Bookshare could find sources in English language from whatever countries have these tests.

Transform your mathematics course into an engaging and mind-opening experience for even your most math-phobic students. Now in its Fourth Edition, The Heart of Mathematics: An Invitation to Effective Thinking succeeds at reaching non-math, non-science-oriented majors, encouraging them to discover the mathematics inherent in the world around them.

"Mathematics and Art describes mankind's search for patterns and the expression of these numbers and forms by artists. This book will enrich the reader's understanding of mathematics and the arts throughout history, and their deep interconnections in today's global culture of high technology and contemporary art."—Tatsuo Miyajima, artist.

Mathematics and Art: A cultural history is a masterpiece of integration of mathematical knowledge with their artistic implications and vice versa. Filled with good figures and in-depth information, this book is a must for those who love mathematics and enjoyed the arts/5(35).

Problem-solving guides that math competition winners have relied on for more than 25 years, written by people who have won medals in national math contests, including MATHCOUNTS, the AMC, the AIME, and the USAMO. Suitable for grades 6– Here is an unordered list of online mathematics books, textbooks, monographs, lecture notes, and other mathematics related documents freely available on the web.

I tried to select only the works in book formats, "real" books that are mainly in PDF format, so many well-known html-based mathematics web pages and online tutorials are left out.
