"This anthology brings together the year's finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2011 makes available to a wide audience many articles not easily found anywhere else -- and you don't need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These writings offer surprising insights into the nature, meaning, and practice of mathematics today. They delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday occurrences of math, and take readers behind the scenes of today's hottest mathematical debates. Here Ian Hacking discusses the salient features that distinguish mathematics from other disciplines of the mind; Doris Schattschneider identifies some of the mathematical inspirations of M. C. Escher's art; Jordan Ellenberg describes compressed sensing, a mathematical field that is reshaping the way people use large sets of data; Erica Klarreich reports on the use of algorithms in the job market for doctors; and much, much more. In addition to presenting the year's most memorable writings on mathematics, this must-have anthology includes a foreword by esteemed physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson. This book belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in where math has taken us -- and where it is headed."--Publisher's description

They delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday occurrences of math, and take readers behind the scenes of today’s hottest mathematical debates.Here Evelyn Lamb describes the excitement of searching for incomprehensibly large prime numbers, Jeremy Gray speculates about who would have won math’s highest prize—the Fields Medal—in the nineteenth century, and Philip Davis looks at mathematical results and artifacts from a business and marketing viewpoint. In other essays, Noson Yanofsky explores the inherent limits of knowledge in mathematical thinking, Jo Boaler and Lang Chen reveal why finger-counting enhances children’s receptivity to mathematical ideas, and Carlo Séquin and Raymond Shiau attempt to discover how the Renaissance painter Fra Luca Pacioli managed to convincingly depict his famous rhombicuboctahedron, a twenty-six-sided Archimedean solid. And there’s much, much more.In addition to presenting the year’s most memorable writings on mathematics, this must-have anthology includes a bibliography of other notable writings and an introduction by the editor, Mircea Pitici.

Interpreting mathematics : some educational considerations by Mircea Pitici( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This work contains several contributions supporting the idea that everyone can use mathematics to mold a personal niche in the social milieu by interpreting mathematical notions and results in one's own way. I include an autobiographical piece about my mathematical experience; a literature review of authors who influenced my thinking; a description of a seminar I designed to teach and test my views on interpreting mathematics; some applications to mathematical topics; and a list of references. Interpreting mathematics reflects the personal perspective of each individual on a particular piece of mathematics, on mathematics as a whole, or on everything mathematical in between; it has nothing to do with truth-it can be as plausible as the mathematics it concerns but it can also be fiction, eventually. The ability to interpret mathematics is different from the learning of mathematics per se-and it is a gateway to entrepreneurial uses of mathematics
