Title: | A Readable Introduction to Real Mathematics [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Daniel Rosenthal David Rosenthal Peter Rosenthal |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Designed for an undergraduate course or for independent study, this text presents sophisticated mathematical ideas in an elementary and friendly fashion. The fundamental purpose of this book is to engage the reader and to teach areal understanding of mathematical thinking while conveying the beauty and elegance of mathematics. The text focuses on teaching the understanding of mathematical proofs. The material covered has applications both to mathematics and toother subjects. The book contains a large number of exercises of varying difficulty, designed to help reinforce basic concepts and to motivate and challenge the reader. The sole prerequisite for understanding the text is basic highschool algebra some trigonometry is needed for Chapters 9 and 12. Topics covered include: * mathematical induction * modular arithmetic * the fundamental theorem of arithmetic * Fermat's little theorem * RSA encryption * the Euclideanalgorithm * rational and irrational numbers * complex numbers * cardinality * Euclidea n plane geometry * constructability (including a proof that an angle of 60 degrees cannot be trisected with a straightedge and compass) This textbookis suitable for a wide variety of courses and for a broad range of students in the fields of education, li beral arts, physical sciences and mathematics. Students at the senior high school level who like mathematics will also be able tofurther their understanding of mathematical thinking by reading this book |

Note: | Winner of the 1983National Book Award, The Mathematical Experience presented a highlyinsightful overview of mathematics that effectively conveyed its power and beauty to a largeaudience of mathematicians andnon-mathematicians alike. The study edition of the work followed about a decade later, supplementing the original material of the book with exercises to provide a self-contained treatment usable for the classroom. This softcoverversion reproduces the study edition andincludes epilogues by the thre e original authors to reflect on the book's content 15 years after its publication, and to demonstrate its continued applicability to the classroom.Moreover,The Companion Guide to the Mathematical Experienceoriginally published and sold separatelyis freel y available online to instructors who use the work, further enhancingits pedagogicalvalue and making itanexceptionally usefuland accessible resource for a wide range oflower-level courses inmathematics and mathematics education. A wealth of customizable o nline course materials for the bookcan be obtainedfrom Elena AnneMarchisotto (elena.marchisotto@csun.edu) upon request. Reviews [The authors] have tried to provide a book usable in a course for liberal arts students and for future secondary teachers. They have done much more! This course shouldbe required of every undergraduate major employing the mathematical sciences. It differs from the mathematics appreciation coursescourses that are merely a collection of amusing puzzles and toy problems giving an il lusion ofa mathematical encounterpresently found in many institutions. Students of this course are introduced to the context in which mathematics exists and the incredible magnitude of words devoted to communicating mathematics (hundredsof thousands of th eorems each year). How much mathematics can there be? they are asked. Instructors in a Mathematical Experience course must be prepared t |
