Painless Geometry (Painless)

Description The thought of solving theorems or postulates leaves some students quivering in their boots. . . but not anymore! This must-have guide takes the pain out of learning geometry once and for all. The author demonstrates how solving geometric problems amounts to fitting parts together to solve interesting puzzles. Students discover relationships that exist between parallel and perpendicular lines; analyze the characteristics of distinct shapes such as circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles; and learn how geometric principles can solve real-world problems. Like all titles in Barron’s Painless Series, this book presents informal, student-friendly approaches to learning geometry, emphasizing interesting details, outlining potential pitfalls step by step,...

Applied Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction

Description Mathematics is playing an increasingly important role in society and the sciences, enhancing our ability to use models and handle data. While pure mathematics is mostly interested in abstract structures, applied mathematics sits at the interface between this abstract world and the world in which we live. This area of mathematics takes its nourishment from society and science and, in turn, provides a unified way to understand problems arising in diverse fields. This Very Short Introduction presents a compact yet comprehensive view of the field of applied mathematics, and explores its relationships with (pure) mathematics, science, and engineering. Explaining the nature of applied mathematics, Alain Goriely...
