Reseña del editor

Make mathematics fun and satisfying for everyone Math can be a living source of powerful ideas that transcend mathematics; a window into mind-opening philosophical concepts such as infinity, fourth dimensions, chaos, and fractals; and a practical training ground for developing skills in analysis, reasoning, and thought-if you have the right approach and the right guide. The Heart of Mathematics: An Invitation to Effective Thinking--now in its third edition-transforms mathematics into an engaging, relevant experience even for the most math-phobic student. Infusing this book with humor and enthusiasm, Edward B. Burger and Michael Starbird-both recipients of the Mathematical Association of America's foremost national teaching award and countless state, regional, and campus-wide teaching honors-introduce students to the most important and interesting ideas in mathematics while inspiring them to actively engage in mathematical thinking. Richer and more rewarding than ever, this new edition features:* An emphasis on mathematical methods of investigation* Visualization techniques that make key concepts easier to understand* Accessible, friendly writing style that encourages critical thinking*"Life Lessons"-effective methods of thinking that students will retain and apply beyond the classroom* End of section Mindscape activities for the development of application, problem-solving, and argumentation skills

Very detailed and specific, I think my professor is a big part of why I like this book a lot but the book it's self is very specific and explains things in two forms, mathematical and english.

This book is so well-written. Thus far, this is the most enjoyable math book I have ever used (as a student). The writing is somewhat poetic, the problems are relevant to the explanations, and the font/style/overall presentation makes for an easy read. At my university it is being used as a required text for a graduate-level Analysis course.

this is the best math book ever written 21 de julio de 2014
Por John M. Sullivan - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
I my humble opinion, this is the best math book ever written. It's also the best logic book ever written. If you want to teach someone how to think effectively, this is the best gift you could ever give.
