Barron's Mathematics Study Dictionary by Frank Tapson, Robert A. Atkins Average Customer Review: Paperback (01 February, 1998) list price: $11.95  our price: $9.56 (price subject to change: see help) US  Canada  United Kingdom  Germany  France Editorial Review Calming a bad case of math jitters is easier than parents and students might think. Secondary school math is, in essence, a new language, with new meanings assigned to words such as "altitude," "area," "axis," and "absolute." No wonder many an otherwise adept student gets bogged down. Barron's Mathematics Study Dictionary deftly and reassuringly resolves this predicament. Arranged alphabetically by themes (with vocabulary and definitions for "arithmetic," "conic sections," "formulas for shapes," and "probability," for example), and with a "Wordfinder" crossreference (abbreviations to "Z angles") to help locate specific confusing terms, the study dictionary helps explain the vocabulary of mathematics, translating lessons and homework back into plain English.

An indispensible reference This study dictionary defines and explains mathematicalterms and functions in a comprehensive, dictionarystyle format. Theinformation is geared for students from prealgebra through college. Thisis simply a reference that every student should have. The definitions andillustrated examples are grouped by concept. When you look up a term, youwill find it on a page with all the other terms related to the samemathematical function. For example, the word "denominator" willbe found under "fractions". In fact, just reading the definitionson any given page is a good introduction to the subject. A comprehensive'wordfinder' index at the begining of the book directs you to the rightpage. This book would be a bargain at twice the price. (It probably willmake more sense to your kids than the explanations in their textbooks). ... Read more Isbn: 0764103032

My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles (Math & Logic Puzzles) by Martin Gardner Average Customer Review: Paperback (01 November, 1994) list price: $4.95  our price: $4.95 (price subject to change: see help) US  Canada  United Kingdom  Germany  France Reviews (7)
The best of one of the best Intermediary puzzlists will find the pleasures of often working at the upper edge of their skills. The solutions at the end of the book are complete enough so that even those who didn't get it right the first time will get aha insights. The book is well worth its price even for puzzle enthusiasts. Even I knew many of the puzzles beforehand  classics indeed  but the notes in the solutions often add a twist, a clever solution or a human interest point of view. The age recommendation of amazon.com  48 years  is probably either an insider joke or a typo. I'd recommend this book to people between 1480 years of age, and even over.
Puzzles requiring intermediate mathematical skills So get this one if you are good at mathematical thinking and want to challenge yourself. If you are weak in math and would rather read puzzles that require only logic, cleverness, and lateral thinking only, this may not be the one for you.

Math as science, art and life Jacobs' writing is clear (which cannot be said for many books onmath at any level) and his organization sweeps the reader right along.Though technically a textbook, this is excellent reading for anyone who'sinterested in learning about math.I read it in junior high school, andhave reread bits and pieces as I progressed through college and graduateschool.His subjects are complex enough to merit rethinking, yet hisexplanations clear enough to be grasped by the first time reader. Trulyone of the great introductory math texts  especially for those who thinkthey don't need to know or can't understand math.
This book fosters true love of math.

Maths: A Student's Survival Guide: A SelfHelp Workbook for Science and Engineering Students by Jenny Olive Average Customer Review: Paperback (16 July, 1998) list price: $35.00 US  Canada  United Kingdom  Germany  France Reviews (3)
One of the best books for self study Jenny Olive's book is very helpful for people entering into a self study math program to bring together their fragmented college level math education and build mathematical understanding. If you were like me, the fast pace of college level courses forced you to cut corners and rush through material without the deep understanding that builds confidence.The book begins with Algebra and moves on to Trig and Calculus.The explanations are extremely lucid and the exercises are put together intelligently to move you toward greater complexity.And yes, there is no substitute for working out the problems as any good mathematician will tell you.I disagree with a previous reviewer on this score. Although, I felt (somewhat arrogantly) that I did not need to review Algebra, I found myself red faced and stuck in some of the more advanced problems.Fortunately the clear explanation and repeated problem solving gave me the insights that I was lacking.I found it helpful to work with a graphing calculator to help visualize some of the mathematics.It's also a great way to learn a graphing calculator! I understand that Ms. Olive is adding two new chapters to her next edition, which she has kindly made available on her website for persons who own the current version. It would be nice if she would make it available in a downloadable PDF version. I am hoping that the author will choose to follow this up with similar books on Probability and Linear Algebra.Her recommendations for further reading would also be very helpful.Great math books (and math teachers)are worth their weight in gold.Buy this book for your math library.You won't regret it.
A great review

Who Is Fourier?: A Mathematical Adventure by Transnational College of Lex Tokyo, Yo Sakakibara, Alan Gleason, Transnational College of LEX Average Customer Review: Paperback (01 April, 1995) list price: $24.95  our price: $16.47 (price subject to change: see help) US  Canada  United Kingdom  Germany  France Reviews (30)
Dime store teaching philosophy aimed at an unknown audience.
Excellent book on fourier transform However, the reason I can not give this book five star is that the book contains many redundant and irrelavant dialogues which distract your attention from time to time. To speed up your reading, you have to filter it out. In addition, this book is over size and make it difficult for bedtime reading.
