I stumbled across ‘The Bedside Book of Algebra’ in a bookshop in Killarney over the summer and have loved dipping into it over the past few weeks. It’s a lovely combinations of a look at some of the concepts, the mathematicians who developed them and some applications. Here’s a sneak peak at the introduction to the six chapters in the book.
‘The Bedside book of Algebra’ has been the perfect accompaniment to Jo Boaler’s How to Learn Math course over the past few weeks. I can see myself returning to both the book and the ideas presented in the course over the coming months and years.
