By Andrea Rothbart

An inventive creation to quantity idea, this special approach employs a couple of fictional characters, Ant and Gnam. Ant leads Gnam via quite a few theories, and jointly, they placed the theories into action—applying linear diophantine equations to soccer scoring, utilizing a black-magic gadget to simplify difficulties in modular buildings, and constructing exciting transformations to the principles of chess.
Appropriate for an individual acquainted with algebra on the high-school point, The thought of Remainders offers a charming advent to either quantity concept and summary algebra. either common and demanding, it presents a view of arithmetic as a conceptual web and illustrates the variations among conceptual and paraconceptual claims—an very good begin to increasing scholars' views on mathematics.
Exercises during the e-book shape an essential component of the textual content, extending scholars' adventure with the ideas less than dialogue and proposing possibilities to watch styles. as well as the workouts, a sequence of non-compulsory difficulties permits extra complex readers to additional strengthen the concepts.
