Book Description

MATHEMATICAL EXCURSIONS; 4th Edition; (PDF) teaches you that mathematics is a method of knowing and understanding our surroundings. For instance; sending information across the Internet is better understood when one comprehends that prime numbers are associated to credit card transactions; that compound interest is linked to student loans; and that the dangers of radioactive waste take on new meaning when one knows exponential functions are connected to the disasters at Fukushima; Japan. The effectiveness of the flow of traffic through an intersection is more interesting after seeing the system of traffic lights denoted in a mathematical form. These are only a few of the facets of mathematics you will explore with this textbook. Mathematical Excursions 4e will expand the way you know; perceive; and understand the world around you.
