Mathematics opens new doors to the amazing world of maths. Telling the exciting story from a historical perspective, its shows how mathematical science advanced through the discoveries of the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks, the great scholars of medieval Islam and Europe, and the Renaissance and the birth of the Scientific Revolution. From the simplest concepts of numbers and arithmetic, geometry and algebra, trigonometry and calculus, right through to infinity and chaos theory, Mathematics introduces and explains the most important concepts in accessible, non-technical language. Along the way we meet the extraordinary characters who made great leaps in our understanding of mathematical concepts and theorems, from Pythagoras and Archimedes, to Fibonacci and Fermat, Godel and Turing.
