Votre note
This book is a collection of mathematical mistakes made by ordinary citizens, students, teachers, and occasionally seasoned researchers, along with an analysis for most of them. While all the material is for personal enlightenment and amusement, high school and college teachers may use the material to illustrate important and subtle points in mathematics. Newspapers are responsible for several of these mathematical mishaps, particularly in arithmetic (especially percentages) and probability. Quite a number of the "Fallacies" come from professional mathematicians. Some are the result of simple oversight, and others are deliberately crafted by the mathematician to drive home an important point to students. A glimpse at the Table of Contents offers examples from number theory, algebra and trigonometry, geometry, finite mathematics, probability, calculus, linear algebra and advanced undergraduate mathematics.

Biographie d'Edward-J Barbeau

Edward J. Barbeau received his Ph.D. from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. He was a postdoctoral Fellow at Yale University, and has taught mathematics at the University of Toronto since 1967. He was named Fellow of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (1989), and has received the David Hilbert Award (1991) from the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions and the Adrian Pouliot Award (1995) from the Canadian Mathematical Society. His other books include: Five Hundred Mathematical Challenges with M.S. Klamkin and W.O. Moser (published by The Mathematical Association of America), Polynomials, and After Math. He has been a frequent speaker and was invited on two occasions to give lectures by the Royal Canadian Institute, devoted to disseminating science to the layman. He also gave a series of three radio broadcasts, "Proof and Truth in Mathematics" over the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Network.
