So, you think math is boring and there is nothing much anyone can do to make it "un-boring"?
You think the average person can't really ever understand math, and "Who needs it?" if you have a calculator in hand!
Think Again!!
Never again hear the question which many math students have: "When are we ever gonna use this stuff?" or "Math is boring!"
No other textbooks are like these. Each text is written in the style of a novel with a humorous story line. Each section tells part of the life of Fred Gauss and how, in the course of his life, he encounters the need for the math and then learns the methods. Tons of solved examples. Each hardcover textbook contains ALL of the material – more than most instructors cover in traditional classroom settings. Includes tons of proofs.
Written by Dr. Stanley Schmidt with the intent to make math come alive with lots of humour, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that stick in the mind. The student will learn to think mathematically.
