Mathematics Explained!

Steven Strogatz, a professor of applied mathematics at Cornell University, has a wonderful series of essays in the Opinionator section of the New York Times website. Strogatz attempts to explain some of the more fundamental concepts of mathematics in terms understandable to those of us not pursuing our Ph.D.s in the subject.

These essays cover ideas as fundamental as the concept of the number, using a Sesame Street video to help illustrate the concept, on up through mathematics, to his latest posts on the Calculus concept of limits. This is a wonderful series of essays and I look forward to even more to come!
