The first book I read this semester was

*The Math Book*by Clifford A. Pickover. The second book that I read was*Mathematician's Delight*by W.W. Sawyer. I did not get to read the whole book, but I was able to skim through the entire book. On W.W. Sawyer's__the book is explained like this, "In this book Sawyer criticizes the teaching of math without context. The best way to learn geometry is to follow the road which the human race originally followed: Do things, makes things, notice things, arrange things, and only then reason about things." This book seemed interesting to me because it starts with simple arithmetic and algebra and proceeds by gradual steps through graphs, logarithms, and trigonometry to calculus and the world of numbers. This book is very thin and easy to read. It W.W. Sawyer knows how to teach and he shows that throughout this book. This book is a great place to start exploring mathematics! I would recommend this book to anyone that would like to explore mathematics, or would even like to know more about mathematics!__**website**
