> 100 Commonly Asked Questions in Math Class
Do your students ever ask mathematical questions that have you baffled, or to which you have an answer but not a very convincing one? Beginning with THE question, “Why do I have to learn mathematics?”, the sections in this book cover general queries as well as a selection from number, algebra, geometry and probability.
Questions such as “What is the difference between a number and a digit?”, “What is a function?”, “What is the difference between combinations and permutations?”, “How can the Pythagorean theorem be proved by paper folding?”, “How does a calculator function?”, “Why is division by zero not permitted?” are answered comprehensively, with detailed mathematical explanations as well as interesting background information.
Even if these questions haven’t been asked in your classroom, this is a perfect book to dip into and enjoy for your own edification.
