Brief, most historical explorations in Infinity for A - level and first year degree math studies.
on 1 April 2016
This book is well bound for a paperback in standard quality paper. It's mostly text with a few graphs to illustrate a point here and there.
* Target audience, A - level / H.N.D, Undergraduate, Graduate, Postgraduate?
This book (i.m.h.o) is designed for A-Level, or first year degree students that need a bit of background fleshing - out of some fundamental terms in some supporting math topics. The author makes it very easy to get on with and reading this book is a gentle slope in difficulties and in some related and associated topics. This book (i.m.h.o) did not 'get going' until the middle and later chapters, as it described the backgrounds of the math characters in mostly historical descriptions up to this general point. After progressing, more was made of the features of infinity which is why i bought this book and it attracted me to this volume. There is nothing here in this book i didn't know or have read about already from other sources. But this is not to say the book is not beneficial to other readers with less studies under their belts and want to learn about these topics in mostly historical terms.
If you're new to math and enjoy recreational historical explorations of mathematical history, this is a book to consider but don't expect to delve deeply and broadly within this area of mathematical studies.
