Read full description of the books Measurement:Paul Lockhart's Measurement takes readers on a path through the mathematician's mind. Instead of rote memorization seen in many math text books, you'll instead find interesting puzzles and questions regarding shapes and numbers we see every day.
Lockhart takes the reader by the hand and shows them what all of their teachers were afraid to show them so many years ago: That math is not just beautiful, but it is artistic. That the way mathematicians solve problems is not through "doing the work", but rather thinking and interacting with the problems.
Read information about the authorPaul Lockhart became interested in mathematics when he was 14 (outside the classroom, he points out). He dropped out of college after one semester to devote himself exclusively to math. Based on his own research he was admitted to Columbia, received a PhD, and has taught at major universities, including Brown University and UC Santa Cruz. Since 2000 he has dedicated himself to "subversively" teaching grade-school math at St. Ann's School in Brooklyn, New York.
