Volumes, the MoMath book club
Tuesday, August 2 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz and author Susan D'Agostino for an online discussion of D'Agostino's How to Free Your Inner Mathematician: Notes on Mathematics and Life.
How to Free Your Inner Mathematician: Notes on Mathematics and Life offers readers guidance in managing the fear, freedom, frustration, and joy that often accompany calls to think mathematically. With practical insight and years of award-winning mathematics teaching experience, D'Agostino offers more than 300 hand-drawn sketches alongside accessible descriptions of fractals, symmetry, fuzzy logic, knot theory, Penrose patterns, infinity, the Twin Prime Conjecture, Arrow's Impossibility Theorem, Fermat's Last Theorem, and other intriguing mathematical topics. Readers are encouraged to embrace change, proceed at their own pace, mix up their routines, resist comparison, have faith, fail more often, look for beauty, exercise their imaginations, and define success for themselves.
