A wonderful read
The Real Beauty and Exhiliration of Math At Dover's low price, this book is a great buy. Get it! If you have more mathematical knowledge, then I also recommend "Proofs from the Book" by Aigner, et al., which is written for mathematicians in a similar style.
An excellent collection of problems at the elementary level Even if you are amathematician you will be suprized at many of the results and enjoy tryingto solve some of the problems. Many of the problems are quite hard. Eventhough some of the problems are the standard ones, many are off the beatentrack. No matter what your level of expertise, I am sure you will enjoythis book. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description When first published posthumously in 1963, this book presented a radically different approach to the teaching of calculus. In sharp contrast to the methods of his time, Otto Toeplitz did not teach calculus as a static system of techniques and facts to be memorized. Instead, he drew on his knowledge of the history of mathematics and presented calculus as an organic evolution of ideas beginning with the discoveries of Greek scholars, such as Archimedes, Pythagoras, and Euclid, and developing through the centuries in the work of Kepler, Galileo, Fermat, Newton, and Leibniz. Through this unique approach, Toeplitz summarized and elucidated the major mathematical advances that contributed to modern calculus. Customer Reviews (5)
A Great Alternative (Pre-War) Look at Calculus
In an era of calculus textbooks so massive that they can be used in bodybuilding courses, this book is a welcome outlier
A relic in another language
Sad that it didn't quite work
