    Here is an unordered list of online mathematics books, textbooks, monographs, lecture notes, and other mathematics related documents freely available on the web. I tried to select only the works in book formats, "real" books that are mainly in PDF format, so many well-known html-based mathematics web pages and online tutorials are left out. Many toddler titles are not strictly educational books, but are all about the interactive experience, such as lift-the-flap and touch-and-feel books. These types of books are great to introduce your little one to the pleasures of reading, and most have educational benefits as well.

I'm looking for recommendations for a maths book for a bright, self-motivated child in their late teens who is into maths (mainly analysis) at upper high-school / early undergrad level. I'm thinking something along the lines of The Princeton Companion to Mathematics, Spivak's Calculus, The Pleasures of Counting by T. W. Körner.

Within this page, you’ll find an extensive list of math books that have sincerely earned the reputation that precedes them.

For many of the most important branches of mathematics, we’ve. Mathematical beauty is the aesthetic pleasure typically derived from the abstractness, purity, simplicity, depth or orderliness of mathematics.

Mathematicians often express this pleasure by describing mathematics (or, at least, some aspect of mathematics) as might also describe mathematics as an art form (e.g., a position taken by G.

Hardy) or, at a minimum, as a creative. Robert Kaplan's prior book, 'The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero,' remains, for my money, the best popular mathematics book ever written."--Margaret Wertheim, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Guides the reader through some extremely difficult mathematical ideas in ways that are both imaginative and : There is a big need for math resources used in those countries.
