Book Description:
The Maths Gene explains how the human mind came to - and continues to - perform mathematical reasoning. Where does this ability come from? Our prehistoric ancestors' brains were essentially the same as ours, so they must have had the same underlying ability. What purpose could it serve in 50,000bc? And what exactly goes on in our brains when we multiply 15 by 36 or prove Fermat's last theorem? The answer, according to Keith Devlin, lies within our genes and more specifically with the pattern-making abilities with which we are born. He uses this insight to reveal why some people feel that they 'can't do maths', while a select few excel at the subject and to suggest ways in which we can improve our mathematical skills. He also answers the following questions: o Are there things I can do to improve my mathematical skills? (YES) o Can new-born babies do mathematics? (YES) o Do mathematicians have a key secret that enables them to do mathematics with apparent ease? (YES) o Do Chinese and Japanese children have a built-in advantage over American and European children when it comes to learning mathematics? (YES)
