Reading Jesse Kraai's novel Lisa a couple of weeks ago I was once again reminded of the dreadful state that school math teaching has somehow got itself into Lisa a gifted young Aspie chessplayer is failing most of her classes Her mentor decides that she should at least be able to handle math and takes her off to visit a research mathematician he knowsI need to know how to do the ninety degree triangle theorem says Lisa sullenly What's that? asks the mathematician surprised After a while he figures out that Lisa means Pythagoras's theorem She has a bunch of exercises she's supposed to complete but they make no sense to her The mathematician isn't interested in teaching her the rules for passing the test; instead he shows her how you prove Pythagoras's theorem This is a novel experience for Lisa who has never seen a mathematical proof Kraai unfortunately isn't making it up A mathematician friend who's an expert on geometry says the situation is beyond belief After complex negotiations involving mergers between various or less incompatible courses US geometry textbooks present an absurd parody of the subject some of them include as many as a hundred axioms while Euclid's original treatment only used five axioms and five postulates Obviously this vast superfluity of so called axioms would not be necessary if kids were taught to prove theorems but the idea of proof has gone out of styleIf you're curious to see how things used to be done you might want to check out Teach Yourself Calculus a book I read when I was a geeky pre teen in the early 70s It was the closest thing I'd yet seen to a real math text; I absolutely loved it and I can still remember the content uite well Instead of forcing you to learn the dumb rules that are driving Lisa and her generation crazy the author starts off by explaining fundamental principles rates of change limits differentiation the notion of an integral He proves everything from first principles assuming just basic algebra and trig so you can see where all the mysterious formulas come from By the time I'd got to the end I could solve simple differential euations and I understood what I was doing I hadn't just picked up some useful skills; I could start to see what math was actually aboutWell these things are always cyclic and no doubt some cutting edge educational theorist is at this moment telling people that logical proof is the way to go It'll probably be back on the syllabus by the time today's pre teens are sending their own kids to school But if you're a geeky pre teen who wants to find out now what real math looks like do yourself a favor and buy a used copy of Teach Yourself Calculus from bibliocom It could be the best 2 you ever spend

Teach Yourself Calculus is a self instructional mathematics novel that aims to give an complete knowledge of beginning to intermediate calculus With clear and workable definitions and precise examples even on the most complex concepts of the topic that can be applied to the exercises that follow the book is thoroughly a good example of how an instructional book should be like

I'm still teased for this one Whatever I like math Calculus isn't all that superadvanced and esoterical with a good explanation It was a great refresher
