Book Review

By: Sami Shaik

Paragraph 1

Mathematics 1001 is authored by Dr. Richard Elwes. The Scientific topics covered are not in depth but are mentioned. For example, When there is a differential equations topic being covered it talks in detail about the formula and how to use it but it briefly talks about its relationship with physics and astronomy. This practical reference provides clear and concise explanations of the most fascinating fundamental mathematical concepts.

This is one great book, and I mean it in every way possible. The explanations used basic topics, it clearly laid out examples and problems which the solutions can be found to and with this it is not hard to understand any of the topics presented. The math used is basic, but that doesn't mean it is elementary. The book covers everything all the way into calculus and it does it in bite sixe proportions which is easy for bath a younger and older audience. The book lays everything down for you and assumes absolutely nothing. This will be best appreciated by someone who has a full high school level of mathematics and some precalculus. It covers so many areas with just enough debt to inspire the math student to explore further, to educate the non mathematician to the wondrous realm that the professional live in. If you never heard of algebraic geometry or cycloids or topology, you will find it here distilled into a bevity that will entice you to visit those areas that intrigue you. An excellent reference book for math students too in that it helps them review for whatever they are learning.

Paragraph 3

Intensity Ratio is referred to in the book and has its formula

Small Angle Formula it talks about the formula but only briefly and talks about its significance

Magnitude Difference a major formula in astronomy that is covered to an extent

Magnification again also covered to an extent

Quotes from the Book

"Integration is a way of adding slices to find the whole."

"Integration can be used to find areas, volumes, central points and many useful things. But it is easiest to start with finding the area under a curve function."

"Conic sections are the curves which can be derived from taking slices of a "double-napped" cone."

"Graphs play a very important role in mathematics. "

"A graph is also known as a plot. It is said to be a function graph or plot of a function in elementary mathematics. A graph is defined as a collection of lines joining a set of points on a graph paper."

"The line segments that connect these points are generally termed as graph edges, sides or arcs."
