Just the thing for teachers, students, and people who like to stump themselves on occasion, this book contains over 250 questions of about classical mathematics and physics, complete with explanations proving that sometimes (but not always) common sense makes sense. Kendig (Cleveland State U.) mixes math with physics frequently to come up with unusual problems, and may of the questions contain a twist that will appeal even to the most jaded professional. Kendig covers the full range, including geometry, numbers, probability, classical mechanics, linear algebra and also offers fascinating and little-known information in boxes scattered throughout the text. The illustrations are clear, helpful, and never intrusive and can be drawn on the board by even the most talent-free. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
