"I found this book very funny, especially when Robert outwits the Number Devil, and I learned more from the Enzebergian devil who beguiled Robert and I, into a dream world of ideas. I would really recommend this book for anyone of any age – who has ever been mystified by maths."  Luxmi, Year 8.

UCL's Chalkdust Magazine for the mathematically curious has its finger on the pulse, containing great 5minute articles and problems that can keep you busy for a week!

Biographies of Mathematicians

Books for Challenges
The Mathematical Experience
Philip J Davis and Reuben Hersh
A varied selection of articles both long and short and of varying technical difficulty. They cover mainly historical and philosophical aspects of the subject.
The Problems of Mathematics
Ian Stewart
A survey of some of the central problems in maths, both past and present. You might also like to try Nature’s Numbers or his most wellknown book Does God Play Dice? His style is clear and fairly straightforward.
The Pleasures of Counting
T W Körner
Examples of how maths has been used in different situations, some of them quite unlikely. Read the preface to get an idea of the author’s style. Some of the maths on display is difficult – don’t be put off if you don’t get it even after a prolonged period of thought, you should still be able to understand the gist of the explanation.
What is Mathematics, Really?
Reuben Hersh
Relatively accessible philosophy of maths with a historical slant. The first part is more general; the second part contains a fair few sentences of the type “But he doesn’t discover an ontology to go with his fallibilist epistemology”, which you may choose to avoid. There are some helpful notes about maths (rather than philosophy) at the back.
The Mathematical Brain & The Maths Gene
Brian Butterworth, Keith Devlin
These both deal with the psychology of mathematics. Devlin is interested in the notion of maths as a language and how as a species we ended up doing maths in the way we do. Butterworth is a cognitive neuroscientist and includes several interesting case studies both of experimental work and of people with dysfunction when it comes to arithmetic. These books will probably be of most interest to anyone thinking of doing psychology, medicine etc.. They are not about how to do mathematical problems!
