Despite its often-negative reputation, mathematics has the potential to be awe-inspiring and creative. According to Alex Bellos, author of “Here’s Looking at Euclid: From Counting Ants to Games of Chance,” mathematical thought is one of the greatest human achievements, and perhaps even the foundation of all progress. Bellos believes that the world of mathematics is a remarkable place, and one that should be explored and celebrated more often. With its ability to solve complex problems and bring order to chaos, it’s clear that math deserves much more credit than it often receives.
