Summary "Introducing Mathematics traces the story of mathematics from the ancient world to modern times, describing the great discoveries and providing an accessible introduction to such topics as number-systems, geometry and algebra, the calculus, the theory of the infinite, statistical reasoning and chaos theory. It shows how the history of mathematics has seen progress and paradox go hand in hand - and how this is still happening today. This is an essential book for anyone interested in the wonderful and weird world of mathematics - which is, after all, the world we have created for ourselves."--Publisher's website.
