The Trachtenberg Speed System of Basic Mathematics

By Jakow Trachtenberg, Ann Cutler

The Trachtenberg pace procedure of easy arithmetic is a progressive method for calculating and educating simple arithmetic. teenagers, who had time and again failed in mathematics till their mom and dad despatched them to profit this system, have been in a position to practice outstanding calculations inside of seconds. in a single demonstration, a 10 12 months outdated baby, whilst requested to multiply 5132437201 occasions 452736502785, easily wrote at the blackboard the reply, 2323641669144374104785, in seventy seconds. He by no means arrange the fundamental and frequent line via line chart, multiplying and including each one row of numbers. in its place, he simply wrote down the reply with none of the intermediate steps. to illustrate his strategy, Trachtenberg selected youngsters who have been doing poorly of their college paintings. those have been kids used to failure, shy and withdrawn; or on the different severe, rebellious and unmanageable. The kid's responses to the hot, effortless approach of doing mathematics was once rapid. they discovered it delightfully like a online game. the sensation of feat quickly made them lose their unpleasant features. both vital have been the by-products the students attained whereas studying this new method. As those children turned educated in dealing with numbers, they started to spurt forward in all their reports. Their IQs went up to boot! not just did the kid learn how to compute, yet his IQ additionally went up. due to the fact all difficulties have been labored out in his head, he built an outstanding reminiscence and his skill to pay attention used to be elevated. The Trachtenberg approach, as soon as realized, can take the drudgery out of the mathematics that's a part of everyone's day-by-day stint. specialists think that the Trachtenberg method can have far-reaching results on schooling and technology.

Mathematical Fallacies and Paradoxes

By Bryan H. Bunch

From old Greek arithmetic to 20th-century quantum conception, paradoxes, fallacies and different highbrow inconsistencies have lengthy wondered and intrigued the brain of guy. This stimulating, thought-provoking compilation collects and analyzes the main fascinating paradoxes and fallacies from arithmetic, good judgment, physics and language.
While focusing totally on mathematical problems with the twentieth century (notably Godel's theorem of 1931 and selection difficulties in general), the paintings takes a glance besides on the mind-bending formulations of such terrific males as Galileo, Leibniz, Georg Cantor and Lewis Carroll ― and describes them in with ease obtainable aspect. Readers will locate themselves engrossed in pleasant elucidations of tools for false impression the genuine international via scan (Aristotle's Circle paradox), being led off beam through algebra (De Morgan's paradox), failing to understand genuine occasions via good judgment (the Swedish Civil safety workout paradox), mistaking infinity (Euler's paradox), knowing how likelihood ceases to paintings within the genuine global (the Petersburg paradox) and different confusing difficulties. a few highschool algebra and geometry is believed; the other math wanted is built within the textual content. exciting and mind-expanding, this quantity will attract someone trying to find not easy psychological exercises.

God Created The Integers: The Mathematical Breakthroughs that Changed History

By Stephen Hawking

Bestselling writer and physicist Stephen Hawking explores the "masterpieces" of arithmetic, 25 landmarks spanning 2,500 years and representing the paintings of 15 mathematicians, together with Augustin Cauchy, Bernard Riemann, and Alan Turing. This vast anthology permits readers to look into the brain of genius via supplying them with excerpts from the unique mathematical proofs and effects. It additionally is helping them comprehend the development of mathematical notion, and the very foundations of our present-day applied sciences. each one bankruptcy starts with a biography of the featured mathematician, essentially explaining the importance of the end result, via the total evidence of the paintings, reproduced from the unique publication.

On Quaternions and Octonions

By John Horton Conway

This e-book investigates the geometry of quaternion and octonion algebras. Following a accomplished ancient creation, the booklet illuminates the specified homes of three- and four-dimensional Euclidean areas utilizing quaternions, resulting in enumerations of the corresponding finite teams of symmetries. the second one half the e-book discusses the fewer standard octonion algebra, targeting its extraordinary "triality symmetry" after a suitable learn of Moufang loops. The authors additionally describe the arithmetics of the quaternions and octonions. The publication concludes with a brand new thought of octonion factorization. subject matters coated contain the geometry of complicated numbers, quaternions and three-d teams, quaternions and four-dimensional teams, Hurwitz quintessential quaternions, composition algebras, Moufang loops, octonions and 8-dimensional geometry, necessary octonions, and the octonion projective plane.
