It surveys the whole field of mathematics, and explains basic mathematical ideas and terms in a way which makes them both readily understood and absorbing to read about. It brings alive the magic of figures, and shows that mathematics is not a dry and dusty subject, but a strong and inspiring tool to solve all sorts of problems, from adding up everyday bills to the construction of giant electronic computers. This new edition has been completely updated and includes coordinate systems, the elementary mathematics of space vehicles, and the teory of games."Hard Cover.
