“IT’S NOT YOU THAT HATES MATHS, IT’S MATHS THAT HATES YOU”
It really helps me understand math in a different way. It makes me feel that math is another person near with, with me every day and can also have its good and bad parts as any person does.
Because this month was my exam month, the numbers that I used most often and I started to like it in a more complex way is pi.
I used him in many circumstances, and it also appear in 60% of my exams. The history of pi is long and interesting. If you want to read more check this.
Next, on 19th May we celebrated Rubik’s Cube 40th birthday and I know that from 19th May it’s nor really all the month, but I have been playing with my Rubik’s Cube since then a couple of times a day and also I was shocked a little to watch (parts) of this video:
So, I think all these make this my favorite math game for May.
My favorite book is ‘What is Mathematics? An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods’ by Richard Courant, Ian Stewart. It is not the first time I read this, but I used it a lot in this period for revising purposes. I totally recommend it because it has some basic information for different math topics, and if you forget something elementary or you don’t remember something, this is a good book to have close. Check it on Goodreads.
And a math favorite video is about infinity. If you want to find some of my ideas about the importance of infinity check this.
