  • Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension: A Mathematician's Journey Through Narcissistic Numbers, Optimal Dating Algorithms, at Least Two Kinds of Infinity, and More

    By Matt Parker

    A ebook from the stand-up mathematician that makes math enjoyable again!

    Math is uninteresting, says the mathematician and comic Matt Parker. a part of the matter could be the approach the topic is taught, yet it's additionally actual that all of us, to a better or lesser quantity, locate math tricky and counterintuitive. This counterintuitiveness is really a part of the purpose, argues Parker: the intense factor approximately math is that it permits us to entry good judgment and concepts past what our brains can instinctively do—through its logical instruments we will succeed in past our innate skills and take hold of an increasing number of summary concepts.
    within the soaking up and exhilarating Things to Make and Do within the Fourth Dimension, Parker units out to persuade his readers to revisit the very math that placed them off the topic as fourteen-year-olds. beginning with the rules of math accepted from institution (numbers, geometry, and algebra), he finds the way it is feasible to climb all of the manner as much as the topology and to 4-dimensional shapes, and from there to infinity—and somewhat beyond.
    either playful and sophisticated, issues to Make and Do within the Fourth Dimension is stuffed with alluring video games and puzzles, a buffet of not obligatory hands-on actions that entices us to enjoy math that's regularly basically to be had to these learning at a college point. Things to Make and Do within the Fourth Dimension invitations us to re-learn a lot of what we overlooked at school and, this time, to be totally enthralled by means of it.
