That's Maths

Read
299 printed pages
From atom bombs to rebounding slinkies, open your eyes to the mathematical magic in the everyday.
Mathematics isn’t just for academics and scientists, a fact meteorologist and blogger Peter Lynch has spent the past several years proving through his Irish Times newspaper column and blog, That’s Maths.
Here, he shows how maths is all around us, with chapters on the beautiful equations behind designing a good concert venue, predicting the stock market and modelling the atom bomb, as well as playful meditations on everything from coin-stacking to cartography. If you left school thinking maths was boring, think again!

Mathematics can be demanding on the reader because it requires active mental effort.
