This book is strictly, what its title expresses -- Popular Mathematics; that is to say, a book which is meant to be read through, and which is intended to inspire those who, from too tender age or want of opportunities and means, have not acquired a knowledge of mathematical science, with a general perception of its nature, a feeling of its power as an instrument both of wisdom and of working, and the love of a farther acquaintance with it.

This book is ideal for students who need a little push to get motivated, and also great for scientists and those in the math community that like to be in-the-know on relevant and current topics. Perfect as an accompaniment to any science class.

Anyone open to the idea of looking through a popular book on mathematics should be able to get on with this one. It contains pieces of technical mathematics; these can all be skipped without prejudice to the rest, and a coherent story will remain.

This text is intended for a course introducing the idea of mathematical discovery, especially to students who may not be particularly enthused about mathematics as yet. The students could actually participate in the discovery of mathematics.
