Mathematics Reading List for High School Students
Via Slashdot, I came across the following question
Troy writes:
“I’m a high school math teacher who is trying to assemble an extracredit reading list. I want to give my students (ages 1618) the opportunity/motivation to learn about stimulating mathematical ideas that fall outside of the curriculum I’m bound to teach. I already do this somewhat with special lessons given throughout the year, but I would like my students to explore a particular concept in depth. I am looking for books that are wellwritten, engaging, and accessible to someone who doesn’t have a lot of collegelevel mathematical training. I already have a handful of books on my list, but I want my students to be able to choose from a variety of topics. Many thanks for all suggestions!”
There are some good suggestions in the comments, and some not so good ones. Surely our wise and mathematically sophisticated readers will be able to help. Add what you can there, and in the comments here if you like.
