The easy-to-use format makes finding straightforward and natural answers to questions within arithmetic — such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry, probability, combinatorics, numbers, logic, calculus, and statistics — simple.
CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics (2nd edition)
Encyclopedia of Mathematics also gives historical context to mathematical concepts, with entries discussing ancient Arabic, Babylonian, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, and Mayan mathematics, as well as entries providing biographical descriptions of important people in the development of the subject. Written for educators - and their students too! Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success.

Written by someone who obviously enjoys his work. Organized alphabetically from abacus to zeta function, this is a great reference for those pursuing mathematical interests. This is the definitive resource for those of you who love to be able to pick up a book and look up mathematics information. I took four graduate courses with James Tanton; he has an amazing mind, but he is SO humble and makes mathematics accessible for anyone and everyone. The book is an extension of the way he teaches.
This is a must have for any mathematician; I bought it as a gift for my son when he received his BS in math. Go to Amazon.
