Booklist/Reference Book Bulletin Editor's Choice of Outstanding Reference titles
Mathematical concepts are explained in this illustrated set, along with a fascinating historical overview of the field. It explores the uses and effects of math in daily life, and provides information on different career choices in this field. Each volume includes sidebars, bibliographies, timelines, charts, a glossary, a guide to resources on the Web, and individual and cumulative indexes.
"From 'Abacus' to 'Zero' this alphabetically arranged encyclopedia complements the hands-on approach of standard textbooks or resources...Boxed side notes, definitions of special terms, several see references, and, occasionally, small diagrams or black-and-white photos, enhance the entries...Libraries serving strong science programs will find this set particularly useful."
