At the end of last school year, I was approached about reading and reviewing the book MATH GEEK by Raphael Rosen. How can someone who calls herself MissMathDork say no to that? I couldn’t…. so the book showed up and I read it and I read it… and I read it some more (p.s. I am NOT a reader by any sense of the word! My husband actually said to me multiple times “you’re reading…again?!”). This book is wonderful! It makes some of the hardest most complicated theorems make sense in such a way that I wish all of my college professors had read it! The other thing that I love about this book is that the chapters are super short! Each new topic is a chapter, and most only last 2 or 3 pages. AND, there are so many REAL WORLD connections to be made! I learned about curvature of pizza! Did you know there’s a mathematical formula to decide the curvature of pizza and it stays the same regardless of how you hold your pizza? Yep. Go check that out!
So, what does MATH GEEK have to do with this blog post? I loved the book so much, that I’m giving one away! AND, when I mentioned this to my mathematical friends, they wanted to join in! Want to know how awesome my friends are? We pulled together Over $250 worth of LOVE for you! And we’re giving it away! How do you enter? Easy, look at each of the packages below and decide which you want to win (feel free to enter all 4).
