- Change and Motion: Calculus Made Clear
- Meaning from Data: Statistics Made Clear
- What Are the Chances? Probability Made Clear
When I say "sale" I mean "buy these now or wait another year until they are on sale again," because a course currently selling for $69.95 will be $254.95 most of the year.
I took all sorts of math courses through college and probability and statistics courses through graduate school, but I never developed the sense of understanding that Prof Starbird conveyed.
After watching Prof Starbird's first course, The Joy of Thinking: The Beauty and Power of Classical Mathematical Ideas, my wife and I visited Prof Starbird at his office at the University of Texas. I don't think he ever had a "fan" visit before, because he gave us a prop from the course (triangles used to prove the Pythagorean Theorem, I think).
I saw Prof Starbird published a new book titled Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz: Making Light of Weighty Ideas. I have to admit I still haven't read the first edition of his book The Heart of Mathematics, so I should try to bring that book on a plane soon.
I also like history courses from The Teaching Company and I've even watched a course on music, but that's not what I expect my fellow technophiles to want to read in this blog.
