Concepts of Modern Mathematics (Dover Books on Mathematics) and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at - Concepts of Modern Mathematics Dover Books on Mathematics by Ian Stewart - AbeBooks. My review joins the chorus of praise for Dr. Stewart's Concepts of Modern Mathematics ("Concepts"). It has been many years since I put down my slide rule and picked up my math diploma. I wanted a refresher and turned to Concepts for help. Its stated purpose is to spread the concepts underlying the "New Math" to a non-specialized audience/5(70).

Book Preface. Some years ago, “new math” took the country’s classrooms by storm. Based on the abstract, general style of mathematical exposition favored by research mathematicians, its goal was to teach students not just to manipulate numbers and formulas, but to grasp the underlying mathematical concepts. Concepts of Modern Mathematics According to Professor Stewart, an understanding of these concepts offers the best route to grasping the true nature of mathematics, in particular the power, beauty, and utility of pure mathematics. By the time readers have finished this book, they’ll have a much clearer grasp of how modern.

This chapter focuses on the algebra of sets. The concept of set is one of the fundamental concepts of mathematics. The branch of mathematics concerned with the study of the general properties of sets, regardless of the nature of the objects that form those sets, is known as set theory and is regarded as the foundation of modern mathematics.According to Professor Stewart, an understanding of these concepts offers the best route to grasping the true nature of mathematics, in particular the power, beauty, and utility of pure mathematics.
