Who invented algebra? How was geometry first used? Why are probability and statistics important? ""The History of Mathematics"" set answers these questions and many others like them. Showing readers that math's historical development is based on discovery, innovation, collaboration, and experimentation, this set provides engaging, interdisciplinary information for curriculum-based classroom work and take-home assignments. Based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, each of the set's five volumes focuses on one area of math, thoroughly examining the processes, notable events, and key individuals that played a prominent role in the development of that mathematical area. One volume each is devoted to geometry, algebra, numbers, and probability and statistics. A fifth volume, ""Mathematics and the Laws of Nature"", incorporates some elements of geometry, algebra, numbers, scientific computation, and limit, the idea behind calculus. This volume emphasizes connections between mathematics and other fields so that the utility and vibrancy of the subject is made clear to readers. Additionally, each volume in the set explains how certain types of 'pure' mathematics are used in the applied mathematical sciences. Highlights: Organized chronologically within each volume, the books are also divided into sections to provide broad overall coverage including different aspects of the same subject. Brief biographies and discussions of certain narrowly framed but historically important problems are included to help convey the excitement of mathematical discovery to students. The historical development of each branch of math, its fundamental ideas, and all necessary vocabularies are covered. A bibliography is provided, and a chronology helps students place events in time. Cross-references appear where appropriate, helping to make each volume an accessible reference and a fascinating read.
