KIRKUS REVIEW

Space-age math is the central theme here. The growing importance of computers and the increasing emphasis on the binary system of numbers are the ay-words. There are new ways of using arithmetic without the traditional number tables and readers are offered some puzzles to try out for themselves. Probability, geometry and the study of sets are discussed in their relation to modern needs. The combination of simple and difficult subjects lends an uneven quality to the books as a whole.
