Does someone on your “nice list” love math? Well, have no fear: Our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide will help you find that perfect gift for the math-y people in your life!
Companies large and small (Amazon, O Magazine, The New York Times — to name a few) often release holiday gift guides to make shopping for family, friends, and loved ones easier. And we do too! One exciting addition to our lineup this year is a set of recommendations from our learning centers across the country. We’ve included the names of those centers as a shout-out for their contributions. Keep your eyes open for something from the center nearest you — they may have just had you in mind when they submitted their suggestion!
This book is a delightful read. It combines an accessible introduction to category theory with recipes and real-world examples. And it’s great for high schoolers through adults — no matter their math background!
