Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967991587, Paperback)

Students typically are not given the opportunity to see the wondrous side of mathematics because it is often taught as all scales and no music. Help your students: 1) Discover the power of mathematics as the danger of short-term loans is exposed in a dramatic fashion. 2) Investigate math mistakes in the news media and their potential consequences. 3) Watch as mathematics shows the futility of depending on corn-based ethanol to lower our dependence on oil imports. 4) Learn the surprising answer to how much money a hybrid car will save its owner because of reduced gasoline usage. These and other fascinating math investigations will allow students to see the power of mathematics as it cuts through deception and flawed thinking to reveal the truth.
