Burn Math Class by Jason Wilkes

Date 23/07/2016

This a book I wish I had written although If I had, I would write it differently.

I am only a 5th of the way through this average sized yet surprisingly dense book. Normally I do not like these stiff, heavy kind of books, but I am going to make another exception here.

Burn Math Class is fantastic.

It does what it says on the tin. You can forget about math class and get into some beautiful mathematical discovery. As you read through the book it feels something like what it must have felt like to those early discoverers of Mathematics. Wilkes encourages you to think about the ways in which mathematical thought actually discovers genuinely new types of thinking.
