Petersburg, Russia, and also holds a degree from the same university in history and education. Currently, his scholarly interests span several areas, including the history of mathematics education, gifted education, mathematics teacher education, and the theory of mathematical problem solving.
He is the managing editor of the International Journal for the History of Mathematics Education and the author of over one hundred publications, including over twenty books. His research interests focus on the history of mathematics and the sciences in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and their systemic interrelation with social-cultural systems. One of his specializations is history of mathematics education.
He has published several books, among which is Conflicts between Generalization, Rigor and Intuition: From the teaching of mathematics in antiquity to modern pedagogical practices across international borders, the book presents a compendium of the history of mathematics teaching.
The book therefore, comes highly recommended; I will certainly be revisiting it many times over. It is a powerful and comprehensive introduction to the field and a must for any serious scholar of this area of intellectual history.
Mathematics History of Mathematical Sciences. The book is accessible to students that have already experienced calculus, algebra and geometry and will give them a good account of how the different branches of mathematics interact. This third edition includes new chapters on simple groups and combinatorics, and new sections on several topics, including the Poincare conjecture. The book has also been enriched by added exercises.
John Stillwell is a professor of mathematics at the University of San Francisco. He is also an accomplished author, having published several books with Springer, including The Four Pillars of Geometry; Elements of Algebra; Numbers and Geometry; and many more. Mathematics and its History is a joy to read. The writing is clear, concise and inviting.
The style is very different from a traditional text. The author has done a wonderful job of tying together the dominant themes of undergraduate mathematics.
While Stillwell does a wonderful job of tying together seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics, it is possible to read each chapter independently.
I would recommend this fine book for anyone who has an interest in the history of mathematics. For those who teach mathematics, it provides lots of information which could easily be used to enrich an opening lecture in most any undergraduate course.
The text is refreshing, relevant, and surprisingly interesting. A great read!
It should be read by anyone who is using original source material to study the history of mathematics. The author notes in the preface that reading historical mathematics can be fascinating, challenging, enriching, and endlessly rewarding. He then proceeds to illustrate how to analyze and get the most out of original source material. He does this largely by training readers to ask insightful questions when they read a historical text.
Wardhaugh's book should be readily available and kept with your personal reference books. It should also be in your school library. This volume provides much food for thought in relatively few pages, yet in a pleasantly relaxed manner.
