Mathematical Journeys


Writing with a light touch while showing the real mathematics, author Peter Schumer introduces you to the history of mathematics, number theory, combinatorics, geometry, graph theory, and "recreational mathematics."
Requiring only high school math and a healthy curiosity, "Mathematical Journeys" helps you explore all those aspects of math that mathematicians themselves find most delightful.
You'll discover brilliant, sometimes quirky and humorous tidbits like how to compute the digits of pi, the Josephus problem, mathematical amusements such as Nim and Wythoff's game, pizza slicing, and clever twists on rolling dice.
