Mathematics for the Nonmathematician (Dover books explaining science)

Mathematics for the Nonmathematician (Books Explaining Science) - Morris Kline I love how this book provides an interesting historical foundation and then includes examples of the mathematical discoveries just described. Mathematics can be a confusing subject, and I would argue that understanding the historical development of mathematics is just as important as the ability to solve an equation without context, connecting points or application. Kline helps to make math more interesting, as it should be.
