The Heart of Mathematics addresses the big ideas of mathematics (many of which are cutting edge research topics) in a non-computational style intended to be both read and enjoyed by students and instructors, as well as by motivated general readers. It features an engaging, lively, humorous style full of surprises, games, mind-benders, and all without either sacrificing good mathematical thought or relying on mathematical computation or symbols. The authors are award-winning authors, holding awards such as: Distinguished Teaching Award (Burger, from the Mathematical Association of America); Chauvenet Prize (the best expository mathematics writer in the world, Burger, from the MAA) and many others.

In the real world of research mathematics, mathematicians do not know in advance if their assertions are true or false. Extending the Frontiers of Mathematics: Inquiries into proof and argumentation requires students to develop a mature process that will serve them throughout their professional careers, either inside or outside of mathematics. Its inquiry-based approach to the foundations of mathematics promotes exploring proofs and other advanced mathematical ideas through these features: - Puzzles and patterns introduce the pedagogy. These precursors to proofs generate creativity and imagination that the author builds on later - Prove and extend or disprove and salvage, a consistent format of the text, provides a framework for approaching problems and creating mathematical proofs - Mathematical challenges are presented which build upon each other, motivate analytical skills, and foster interesting discussion

Inquiry-driven learners anticipate, embrace, and adapt to disruptive change. Clifton Conrad and Laura Dunek advance a transformative purpose of a college education. They invite stakeholders from across higher education to engage in vigorous dialogue about the aims of a college education—and how to realize those aims. Increasingly influenced by market forces, many universities employ a default purpose of a college education: preparing students for entry into the workforce. As a result, students remain unprepared for a world in which much of the knowledge they acquire will have a shelf life of only a few years. Cultivating Inquiry-Driven Learners charts a new way forward. It proposes that a college education prepare students to be innovative and adaptable by developing four signature capabilities: core qualities of mind, critical thinking skills, expertise in divergent modes of inquiry, and the capacity to express and communicate ideas. In concert, these capabilities empower students to explore and foster ideas that will prepare them to successfully navigate constant change, capitalize on career opportunities, enrich their personal lives, and thoughtfully engage in public life. This innovative book also explores a wide range of initiatives and practices for educating inquiry-driven learners. Examples illustrate possibilities for developing inquiry-driven learners across the curriculum and are drawn from institutions with remarkably different missions and identities—from research universities to liberal arts colleges. -- Matthew Hartley, University of Pennsylvania
