Science Nonfiction Book Group “Math Without Numbers” – Zoom/Online
February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Booklovers come together to explore science and history topics in-depth.
We will discuss “Math Without Numbers” by Milo Beckman.
Math Without Numbers is a vivid, conversational, and wholly original guide to the three main branches of abstract math—topology, analysis, and algebra—which turn out to be surprisingly easy to grasp. This book upends the conventional approach to math, inviting you to think creatively about shape and dimension, the infinite and infinitesimal, symmetries, proofs, and how these concepts all fit together. What awaits readers is a freewheeling tour of the inimitable joys and unsolved mysteries of this curiously powerful subject.
