Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a math major, and took all the outrageously obscure math courses, and passed them in college. One thing was missing : how does it all fit together, and why are we doing all this problem solving? This book explains math as a human invention, and its development as human needs and curiosity developed, from counting to advanced math. So everything you learned in school that did not seem to relate, like trigonometry, calculus, integrals, now make sense. The book explains concepts visually, because before we invented numbers and symbols to express math, they were visual and mental concepts. This is math made visible, by Rogers a terrific writer and Will Burtin, an icon of modern graphic design. Designer Burtin, who is not credited on the cover, demonstrates with this book that graphic design can be much more than advertising dog biscuits (although, I appreciate well-designed dog biscuit graphics). By the way, after my disillusionment with math education, I went back to school and become a graphic designer. Pantheon should reprint this book, advertise it, put it on bookstores, and make a killing, and a good deed for the public!
