BISAC: Mathematics / General

This
book is an outgrowth of classes for students who had little background
in mathematics. Many indicated they never

understood what mathematics
is all about beyond what they learned in high school algebra and
geometry. Was there

any more mathematics to be created or discovered?
How could one actually discover new mathematics?

The objective of this
book is to help the reader obtain an appreciation of mathematics by
participating in the discovery

of solutions to various problems.

Each
chapter begins with a problem and works towards a solution to the
problem. The reader participates in discovering

the solution. There are
also comments about the history of the problems, how answers to
questions lead to new problems,

how the problems studied relate to other
problems that superficially seem to be unrelated, and how some problems
that

seem similar are still unsolved.
