“Serious, light-hearted, insight.”
“Shakes mathematics teaching icons …”
“Rescues mathematics from a black hole.”
Currently mathematics is taught like a Latin, without motivation, restricted to the period from Euclid in the BC to the Renaissance.
This thinking degrades mathematics which is fundamental. Without mathematics sciences are merely observational nature study, engineering is trial and error, while technology is only training in use of imported stuff anyway.
Mathematics is the great philosophical basis for understanding the universe from the Quantum to Cosmology and Relativity, its history and future. Citizens ought to know what is happening in these subjects, and in experiments probing the structure of the universe, at least in concept.
We must at least note where classical mathematics and physics are in error giving a lead for future understanding of quantum computing, for example, and for many biological and physical phenomena. Reference to the unknown, the un-understood, and the unexpected are the major motivation to understand any subject.
‘Mathematics the Truth’ is popular, real, modern mathematics but not a popularization. It is a book for anyone who wants to put the motivation back into mathematics. Anyone who wants to know the unknown, the un-understood, and the unexpected in mathematics.
‘Mathematics the Truth’ is suitable for use in upper secondary schools, but will be golden to anyone interested in mathematics from the true angle.
You will never look at mathematics in the same way again
You are a brainy bastard.

Bayesian statistical methods are becoming more common and more important, but not many resources are available to help beginners. Based on undergraduate classes taught by author Allen Downey, this book’s computational approach helps you get a solid start.Use your existing programming skills to learn and understand Bayesian statisticsWork with problems involving estimation, prediction, decision analysis, evidence, and hypothesis testingGet started with simple examples, using coins, M&Ms, Dungeons & Dragons dice, paintball, and hockeyLearn computational methods for solving real-world problems, such as interpreting SAT scores, simulating kidney tumors, and modeling the human microbiome.
