Mythematics:
Solving the Twelve Labors of Hercules
Michael Huber

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Michael Huber ingeniously introduces many elementary mathematical and physical problems in this fascinating book. Who knew Greek mythology could be so mathematical!"--John Adam, coauthor of Guesstimation

"This book does an excellent job of blending math with a very different field--classics. As I read the book I thought, 'Had one of the gods offered Hercules a premonition of this book's contents, he would have quickly trained to have strength in mathematical insights to rival his physical prowess.' The book repeatedly underscores the importance of careful mathematical modeling."--Tim Chartier, Davidson College

"I like the concepts underlying the problems in this book. It will be a valuable resource for classroom teachers at all levels and a fun read for students."--John Quintanilla, University of North Texas
