More About Theoni Pappas

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Theoni Pappas is passionate about mathematics. A native Californian, Pappas received her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1966 and her M.A. from Stanford University in 1967. She taught high school and college mathematics for nearly two decades, then turned to writing a remarkable series of innovative books which reflect her commitment to demystifying mathematics and making the subject more approachable. Through her pithy, nonthreatening and easily comprehensible style, she breaks down mathematical prejudices and barriers to help one realize that mathematics is a dynamic world of fascinating ideas that can be easily accessible to the layperson.
Her math calendars and over 18 math books appeal to both young and adult audiences alike. Three of her books have been Book-of-the Month Club selections, and her "Joy of Mathematics" was selected as a Pick of the Paperbacks. Her books have been translated into Japanese, Finnish, French, Slovakian, Czech, Korean, Turkish, Russian, Thai, simplified and traditional Chinese, Portuguese, Italian, Vietnamese, and Spanish.
In 2000 Pappas received the Excellence in Achievement Award from the University of California Alumni Association for her work on books and other innovative products that deal with mathematics. She lives in Palo Alto, CA.

Theoni Pappas currently resides in Aptos, in the state of California.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great fun! Great thoughts! Great math!  Jun 22, 2000
I recommend this book to anyone who thinks.

This book is one of my favorites to keep on the shelf by my computer. I find myself flipping through it often for an idea to spark a piece of writing or a quote with which to begin a math lesson. I find myself being surprised by the ruminations of some famous mathematicians and famous non-mathematicians. Some quotes are from something they said, others from what they wrote, and some are even from poems composed. They inspire laughter, contemplation, a grin (as we hear quotes from people confused about math), and even a desire to go out and examine the world with wonder... as mathematicians do.

I also need to add that they did a fantastic job of designing the book. There are illustrations and cartoons that compliment the different quotes or make interesting points all on their own. This is no small book of quotes either -- not "a quote a page" -- but more of a slender pocket volume with easy-to-read type and up to four quotes on a page.

I recommend this book for anyone -- it's not just a math thing!

But any math teachers out there? BUY THIS! You can use some of these to start some wonderful lessons, mathematical conversations, and even some writing in your classroom.
