From Fish to Infinity by Steven Strogatz is a New York Times opinion piece that's the first in a planned series about math.
From the article:
I’ll be writing about the elements of mathematics, from pre-school to grad school, for anyone out there who’d like to have a second chance at the subject — but this time from an adult perspective. It’s not intended to be remedial. The goal is to give you a better feeling for what math is all about and why it’s so enthralling to those who get it.
I'm going to follow this series. My math foundation is shaky. Test scores indicated that the aptitude was there, but I could have benefited from math teachers who knew how to teach children who struggled with math. (Smaller class sizes would have helped, too.)
I would like to find a book that helps grownups review and redo their math educations properly. I've looked through some books from the library and perused reviews online, but was wondering if a reader had recommendation for books they've actually used and liked. In the meantime, I'll be hanging out with the Math Gnomes.
