Count Like an Egyptian: A Hands-on Introduction to Ancient Mathematics<br>David Reimer Count Like an Egyptian:
A Hands-on Introduction to Ancient Mathematics
David Reimer

"Reimer gives us a detailed introduction to the mathematics of the ancient Egyptians--from their arithmetic operations to their truncated pyramids--in a beautifully designed volume that is so much easier to read than a papyrus scroll."--William Dunham, author of The Calculus Gallery: Masterpieces from Newton to Lebesgue

Everyday Calculus: Discovering the Hidden Math All around Us<br>Oscar E. Fernandez Everyday Calculus:
Discovering the Hidden Math All around Us
Oscar E. Fernandez

"For every befuddled math student who's ever sat in class and thought, 'When am I ever going to use this?' Fernandez, assistant professor of mathematics at Wellesley College, gleefully reveals the truth: the world really does run on math. . . . Whether describing how biology uses math to design more efficient organs and body structures or the best way to figure out when to overhaul a subway car, Fernandez keeps the tone light, as entertaining as it is informative. The book will speak most strongly to readers with some experience in trigonometry and basic calculus, but it's also accessible to those willing to put in a little extra effort. Either way, Fernandez's witty, delightful approach makes for a winning introduction to the wonderland of math behind the scenes of everyday life."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Math Bytes: Google Bombs, Chocolate-Covered Pi, and Other Cool Bits in Computing
<br>Tim Chartier Math Bytes:
Google Bombs, Chocolate-Covered Pi, and Other Cool Bits in Computing
Tim Chartier

"How can you tell, by just looking, that 178212 + 184112 = 192212 is not a true statement? When you search for something on the web, how does Google know how to respond with the most relevant hits first? Chartier tells you how in this book. Each new discussion illustrates the almost supernatural explanatory nature of mathematics, promising many hours of enjoyment."--Paul J. Nahin, author of Will You Be Alive 10 Years from Now?: And Numerous Other Curious Questions in Probability

Boom, Bust, and the Global Race for Scientific Talent
Michael S. Teitelbaum

"Detailing the varied interests driving science and engineering workforce policy, Falling Behind? demonstrates that unfortunately, scores of high-skilled workers have been on the losing end of failed education and immigration agendas. This book provides critical analysis and an opportunity to change the dialogue for these issues."--Paul E. Almeida, DPE AFL-CIO

Introduction to Computational Science:
Modeling and Simulation for the Sciences
(Second Edition)
Angela B. Shiflet & George W. Shiflet

Praise for the previous edition: "The heart of Introduction to Computational Science is a collection of modules. Each module is either a discussion of a general computational issue or an investigation of an application. . . . [This book] has been carefully and thoughtfully written with students clearly in mind."--William J. Satzer, MAA Reviews
