Story
You're wasting time listening to the standard advice about learning math. You can't continue with "random acts of learning" as you study simple math, calculus and statistics formulas  at least not for long. The truth is that learning math and remembering numbers can be incredibly simple. You just need to know how.


Good points but very verbose

What Einstein Got Wrong
 By: Dan Hooper, The Great Courses
 Narrated by: Dan Hooper
 Length: 5 hrs and 42 mins
 Original Recording

Overall

Performance

Story
These 12 halfhour lectures are about what Einstein got wrong. He may have kindled a scientific revolution with his famous theory of relativity and his proof that atoms and light quanta exist, but he balked at accepting the most startling implications of these theories  such as the existence of black holes, the big bang, gravity waves, and mindbendingly strange phenomena in the quantum realm. This course by research physicist Dan Hooper of the University of Chicago assumes no background in science and uses very little math.

The Complete Essays of Montaigne
 By: Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, Donald M. Frame (translator)
 Narrated by: Christopher Lane
 Length: 49 hrs and 39 mins
 Unabridged

Overall

Performance

Story
“A faithful translation is rare; a translation which preserves intact the original text is very rare; a perfect translation of Montaigne appears impossible. Yet Donald Frame has realized this feat. One does not seem to be reading a translation, so smooth and easy is the style; at each moment, one seems to be listening to Montaigne himself  the freshness of his ideas, the unexpected choice of words. Frame has kept everything.” (Andre Maurois, The New York Times Book Review)

Histories

Overall

Performance

Story
In this, the first prose history in European civilization, Herodotus describes the growth of the Persian Empire with force, authority, and style. Perhaps most famously, the book tells the heroic tale of the Greeks' resistance to the vast invading force assembled by Xerxes, king of Persia. Here are not only the great battles  Marathon, Thermopylae, and Salamis  but also penetrating human insight and a powerful sense of epic destiny at work.

Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for NonScientists, 2nd Edition
 By: Richard Wolfson, The Great Courses
 Narrated by: Richard Wolfson
 Length: 12 hrs and 20 mins
 Original Recording

Overall

Performance

Story
"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.


I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would
 By Brady on 092213
Publisher's Summary
In this master's thesis, Dr. Lisa A. Johnson Q.M.E. examines the impact of three reasoning skills  number sense, structure sense, and abstract reasoning  on algebra and geometry. The study concentrates its efforts on data compiled from more than 20 researchers in this area, an extensive annotated bibliography, and work done at fictitiously named Union High School, real school classes consisting of 48 math students and eight math teachers. Through the efforts of this study, Dr. Johnson determined that algebra relies on abstract reasoning and structure sense, while geometry does not. Moreover, Dr. Johnson observed that further instruction needs to be given to teachers on communicating the three reasoning skills, as the teachers studied were not sufficiently knowledgeable in these areas. With teacher improvements, students in nonsufficient school systems could better excel in mathematics.
Dr. Johnson holds two bachelors in sciences; three master's degrees, one of which is in Math Education Curriculum, and a doctorate degree. She attributes her success to her parents and sisters. This is her second publication.
