From before nothing to beyond logic

Filed under: books — unwriter1 @ 3:00 pm

How many sheep, squares and and’s can you find in a math book? Let’s start at the beginning. Better yet, let’s start before the beginning so we know where the beginning started. (love that twisted logic). How did people talk about zero, or nothing before the zero was invented? It wasn’t easy as our tax collector finds out. As he and time pass, nothing becomes something and there’s a way to count it. Then we complicate it and add letters. When that becomes too easy, we start on the greek alphabet.

Ok, now that you see how confusing math can be, why isn’t there a simple book to use as a family guide? Remember how to multiply fractions? No? Well I show you. What is And & And? It’s 1. That is boolean logic. I do hope this is clear as mud because my book, Family math, clears it all up. It’s a fun to read book that can also be a refresher for any age. There are no problems to work (I did that for you). No tests to take (ok, I didn’t do those, but I made sure not to design any).

If this sounds interesting, click on the lulu button to the right and buy this book. If you want more information, click on my sites, again on the right,  and read the introduction and first chapter. It’s an investment you really don’t want to pass up (blatant advertising here).


  1. Love the blatant advertising (smile) – and yes it DOES sound like a useful book. I didn’t know Ron Twain was also a math whiz!

  3. I don’t remember a lot of things I used to know in grammar school. I could use a refresher.

  4. Why, Ron Twain. If I get the cravin’ to know more math, yours will be the first place I will look. Good introduction for it! Sounds like a valuable book for those who seek information for math.
