McAdams, noted that some students did not understand even simple math statements, such as "This equation is determinate. Everyone with an interest in the inner workings of nature-from engineers to students, from teachers to journalists-will find Laws and Models to be not only a handy reference, but an engaging volume to read and browse. Using graphs, diagrams, and charts to render definitions as comprehensible as possible, entries are clear and accessible and offer an ideal introduction to the subject. Useful appendices follow the A-Z dictionary and include lists of Nobel Prize winners and Fields' medallists, Greek letters, formulae, and tables of inequalities, moments of inertia, Roman numerals, a geometry summary, additional trigonometric values of special angles, and much more. Correct: The definitions have been thoroughly reviewed for mathematical and literary correctness. With explanatory figures, diagrams, and tables for ready reference to compliment the text, clear and precise definitions, with helpful examples, of a wide range of mathematical terms and concepts, and brief biographical sketches of the great mathematicians, this comprehensive dictionary will serve as an indispensable and trustworthy guide to the dynamic world of mathematics.
