The Joy of SET: The Many Mathematical Dimensions of a Seemingly Simple Card Game<br>Liz McMahon, Gary Gordon, Hannah Gordon & Rebecca Gordon The Joy of SET:
The Many Mathematical Dimensions of a Seemingly Simple Card Game
Liz McMahon, Gary Gordon, Hannah Gordon & Rebecca Gordon

"The Joy of SET uses a popular and very simple card game as a springboard for a whirlwind tour through probability, combinatorics, finite geometries, and experimental mathematics. Whether or not you play SET, you’ll find a lot of great math to play with in this book."--Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

Sourcebook in the Mathematics of Medieval Europe and North Africa<br>Edited by Victor J. Katz, Menso Folkerts, Barnabas Hughes, Roi Wagner & J. Lennart Berggren Sourcebook in the Mathematics of Medieval Europe and North Africa
Edited by Victor J. Katz, Menso Folkerts, Barnabas Hughes, Roi Wagner & J. Lennart Berggren

"There is no denying that great mathematical progress was made in Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The primary sources in this book show how mathematics developed in medieval Europe to the stage where such progress became possible. The editors do a good job of explaining mathematical ideas of the time to modern readers while still leaving the extracts to speak for themselves."--John Hannah, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

Zombies and Calculus<br>Colin Adams Zombies and Calculus
Colin Adams

"Romance! Danger! Calculus! Zombies! Adams (How to Ace Calculus), professor of mathematics at Williams College and humor columnist for The Mathematical Intelligencer, takes readers on an apocalyptic and educational adventure that's also a Spielbergian sci-fi thriller. . . . Adams keeps the in-story math both appropriate and accessible, saving in-depth discussion for appendices at the end. Calculus fans looking for 'real-world' applications woven into a nail-biter of a story, chock-full of narrow escapes, betrayals, some plucky kids, the family dog, and even a romantic subplot, will delight in this fun, and funny pop-math book."--Publishers Weekly starred review

From Euclid to Gödel
John Stillwell

"The coherence of mathematics is on display in this masterful, beautifully written synthesis. With probing questions, lucid explanations, and fascinating examples and stories, John Stillwell reveals where the seemingly separate branches of math came from, how they intertwine, and why the hidden unifier is the deepest idea of all: infinity."--Steven Strogatz, Cornell University and author of The Joy of x
