Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Society
Mathematics in Culture & Society
An in-depth selection of articles from Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Society.

Each title in The Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Society Singles presents 60-70 articles showing the math behind our daily lives, explaining to students how and why math works, and allowing readers to better understand how disciplines such as algebra, geometry, calculus, and others affect what we do every day. This outstanding reference is appropriate for both high school and undergraduate programs, making the content readily accessible to public library patrons as well.

The articles are written in clear language and presented in a uniform, easily readable format. Every article begins with standard, ready reference top matter which includes the category, fields of study (such as geometry, measurements, communication) and a brief summary. The heart of the essay discusses the interconnections of mathematics, including its meaning, history and usage. Every essay ends with a list of sources for further reading and see-also cross-references.
