My list is by no means exhaustive, they are just the books that I have encountered. The hardest part of making a video like this is trying to pronounce all the author's names correctly so my apologies in advance for any that I said wrong 😛 Also in Australia we tend to say 'maths' instead of 'math' and there is very little consistency in which I choose to use.

Sandip Das says:

Thank you sister for the information

Dakoteus says:

Flatland! yay! I also love the planiverse! its incredible.

Christopher Hawkins says:

I recommend "Euler's Gem: The Polyhedron Formula and the Birth of Topology" to anyone about to take algebraic topology for the first time. It puts it in a historical context. The Greeks began classifying the polyhedra and mathematicians over the centuries extended that idea and extended that idea and arrived at homology and homotopy which math grad students study today and is an area of active research.

John T S says:

Mathematics has helped my life and geometry fascinates me. 🙂

I am a Maths teacher, I think 80-90% of the population will find Maths rather difficult or boring. For children in the western countries, they need to find this subject interesting or fun for them to learn whereas in the east the children are or less compelled to learn like I do. In the end, I learnt something and I much appreciated it even though I learnt it the hard way.
More importantly being competent in Maths contribute to me being what I am and help me to think in a more logical manner or clear thinking which most young people I am afraid lack.

Good on you to produce this video.

Bryan Vader says:

Spivak also has a very nice multi variable real analysis text titled Calculus on Manifolds.

Jonney Shih says:

How many years you study before graduation?

Evan Zamir says:

I have been going through Understanding Analysis (Abbott) and Linear Algebra Done Right (Axler). These are good for me because while I have a good engineering math background, I never took basic higher level math classes (Analysis, Algebra, etc).

Ra Vee says:

I don't need books on math anymore cuz I swallowed a scientific calculator…and that luckily got me into contract with Marvel studios!

i would love a video, you giving a quick summary on the different big math topics or areas just to get a feel of what you guys study in a math major…

Hook Banner says:

She has the same accent as Amy Macdonalds does.
