Description
 
Keith Devlin (au). How did human beings acquire the ability to do math? Explains how the human mind came to -- & continues to -- perform math reasoning. Where does this ability come from? Our prehistoric ancestorsí brains were essentially the same as ours, so they must have had the same underlying ability. What purpose could it serve in 50,000 BC? And what goes on in our brains when we multiply 15 by 36? The answer is related to the evolutionary changes in the human brain that gave rise to lang. It lies within our genes & specifically with the pattern-making abilities with which we are born. Shows why some people loathe math, why others find it so difficult, & why a select few excel at the subject. Also suggests ways in which we can improve our math skills. Ill.
