Product description

Review

"Yet another fine collection of mathematical insights, intriguing relationships, and surprising results .... Highly Recommended." - "Choice", on "The Secrets of Triangles
"
"Requiring no more than an elementary knowledge of geometry and algebra, "The Glorious Golden" Ratio will give all readers a new appreciation of the indispensable qualities and the inherent beauty of mathematics." - "Mathematical Review
"
""The Glorious Golden Ratio" is a delight--an inviting and highly accessible exploration of the beauty and enchantment of mathematics, full of intrigue and surprises."--Matthew Goldstein, Chancellor, The City University of New York

"The authors very cleverly present this most ubiquitous mathematical concept ... with the intent of motivating the reader to a greater appreciation for mathematics. The book will show the reader the recreational side of mathematics as well!" --Charlotte K. Frank, Ph.D., SVP, Research and Development, McGraw-Hill Education

""Mathematical Curiosities" takes the reader on a delightful journey through the fascinating relationships that exist in mathematics. From amazing arithmetic surprises to a gaggle of geometry gems, this book will instill a love and appreciation for the beauty of mathematics in both experienced and casual mathematicians. You are sure to enjoy this foray into the curious and surprising mathematical world that, until now, was only accessible to professional mathematicians and enthusiasts."
--Daniel Jaye, chief academic officer, Solomon Schechter Day School of Bergen County
"This book truly presents a most unusual collection of mathematical curiosities that will motivate and interest a broad audience. I was amazed at the plethora of clever relationships that have been exposed by the authors--many of which will be new to most readers--despite the fact that most are relatively elementary. This book, which demonstrates many mind-boggling mathematical relationships, should be attractive to those who already love mathematics, and it should win over those who might be skeptical about their relationship with this subject."
--Charlotte K. Frank, PhD, senior advisor, Research and Development, McGraw-Hill Education
"It's a treasure trove, indeed.... There are many reasons to share in this arithmetic potluck with the authors. Did you ever hear anything about the clever way Babylonian peasants solved multiplications of large numbers? This book will tell you and entertain you."
--Dr. Gerhard Ackermann, professor and retired president, Beuth University of Applied Sciences, Berlin
"Posamentier and Lehmann are bringing back two neglected arts: the joy of teaching and the joy of learning. Nothing could be more important."
--Harry Phillips III, New York State Board of Regents
