Think Like a Maths Genius by Michael Shermer Arthur BenjamanGood book, easy to read. Includes practice problems and bibliography for further reading/practice.
This would be great to read along w the kids, and SUPER practical for anyone to use in life. The epilogue to this book persuades why math helps everyone to make sense of the world and to think critically. (*Note for creationists, the epilogue includes an argument for evolutionary theory using preponderance of evidence, but that’s not at all the point of this book*). Even if you don’t think you are good at math, if you read this book and understand the concepts, it gives you an appreciation for math and for how accessible math and its benefits are to anyone.
Think Like a Maths Genius
March 10, This is the kind of book you will either find really fun or deadly dull. But if you actually enjoy being able to manipulate numbers in your head, and would like to learn the tips of the trade, this is the book for you. Starting gently with simple addition and subtraction it works up through levels of multiplication to division, before veering off into pencil and paper techniques, number memory techniques and mathematical magic like magic squares. Apart from the trip into number magic, this is real world calculation, the sort of thing we use everyday — but performed using brain cells instead of a calculator.
