It contains 12 sessions in the form of chapters (each dealing with a specific topic from mathematics), an introduction, a very interesting epilogue, an appendix explaining the notation used in the book, an appendix summarizing all abbreviations used in the book, a good bibliography, and a good index.
Each session is written by the actual presenter or by one of the editors based on the original presentation given by a presenter to the students of the Berkeley Math Circle. The editors have done great work to edit all sessions to appear uniform in format and style. The final result is an exciting book that everyone interested seriously in mathematics should read. If you curious, the topics of the sessions are: Inversion in the plane; combinatorics; Rubick's cube; number theory; about proofs (part I and part II); mathematical induction; mass point geometry; complex numbers; games with invariants; favorite problems at BMC; monovariants.
Since I have been negative in my reviews for two other books of the same series (Geometry: A Guide for Teachers (MSRI Mathematical Circles Library) and ...Read more ›
Some topics are amazing like mass point geometry. Some others are fun introductions of math theory and problem solving skills.
The only thing I feel sorry is there's just Volume 1. I eargely look forward to Volume 2.
