Overview

The word mathematics comes from the Greek word mathema, meaning knowledge or learning. And indeed mathematics is at the heart of almost all processes and patterns that occur in the modern world, yet many still find the discipline hard to fathom. Fibonacci's Rabbits solves this problem in bite-sized 'hops', de scribing the 50 most critical discoveries and revolutionary moments in the history of mathematics from Ancient Greece to the present day.
