Reviews

"Jason Wilkes' spirited, hip-nerdy Burn Math Class is what high school math might look like if it were redesigned by people who loved math but hated high school."--Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not To Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking
"With this wonderful book, Jason Wilkes uses a radical new approach to teach readers a way to assemble for themselves areas of mathematics that once seemed difficult. Fascinating, funny, and thoroughly engaging, this is one of those highly original books that come along once a decade. Not a coffee table book for someone who wants to look educated--it is instead a book for people who actually want to be educated--for someone who wants to take mathematics into his bones."--John Tooby, Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director, Center for Evolutionary Psychology, University of California, Santa Barbara
