Volumes, the MoMath book club
Thursday, August 11 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Volumes continues! Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz and author Alec Wilkinson for an online discussion of Alec's A Divine Language: Learning Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus at the Edge of Old Age.
Decades after struggling to understand math as a boy, Alec decides to embark on a journey to learn it as a middle-aged man. What begins as a personal challenge — and it's challenging ― soon transforms into something greater than a belabored effort to learn math. Despite his incompetence, Alec encounters a universe of unexpected mysteries in his pursuit of mathematical knowledge and quickly becomes fascinated; soon, his exercise in personal growth morphs into an intellectually expansive exploration.
