About the book:

Have you ever wondered how you can use your microcomputer to learn something useful whilst still having fun? If you have then you will certainly enjoy this entertaining guide to the fascinating world of mathematics. And you do not need to be an expert in mathematics or computing! Each chapter introduces an important part of mathematics. The basic ideas are explained in a lively and instructive style, and then incorporated into computer games and 'fun' programs. Find out how to make snowflakes and about polar honey bees; discover hidden treasure, and learn what bouncing balls, rockets and bacteria have in common; create amazing patterns on screen. All of the computer programs are written in BASIC, and in such a way that they are readily adaptable to your own microcomputer; conversion notes are provided. The programs have been tested on several different microcomputers and the programs listings have been printed directly from running programs. The book will provide an endless source of ideas, and what you learn will enable you to write your own even more sophisticated programs.
