Strength in Numbers

Discovering the Joy and Power of
Mathematics in Everyday Life

SHERMAN K. STEIN

What is the spell of cool numbers? Was the golden ratio used to build the Great Pyramid of Khufu? What do two goats and a car have to do with making good decisions? In Strength in Numbers, awardwinning teacher and author Sherman K. Stein offers an entertaining exploration of the surprising ways in which the language of mathematics can enhance our understanding of the world around us.

"After finishing this book, you should have a clearer idea of the importance of mathematics in the 'real' world and the ability to read the language of mathematics. I hope, in addition, you will have gained an appreciation of the beauty of mathematics and the elegance of its reasoning."
