Summary, etc.:
Applying the Big Ideas Simply Explained series' trademark combination of authoritative, accessible text and bold graphics to chart the development of math through history, The Math Book explores and explains subjects ranging from ancient mathematical ideas and inventions, such as prehistoric tally bones and Sumerian multiplication tables, through the developments in mathematics during medieval and Renaissance Europe, to the more recent rise of game and group theory. Tracing math through the scientific revolution to its 21st-century use in computers, the internet, and AI, The Math Book uses an innovative graphic-led approach to make the subject accessible to everyone.
