The High School Mathematics Library. Eighth Edition.
Schaaf, William L.
This eighth edition of the bibliography reflects changes in emphasis in the secondary school mathematics curriculum. The booklet is addressed primarily to high school students of all ability levels and to their mathematics teachers, and should also be of interest to students and instructors of mathematics in two-year colleges as well as librarians in both public and school libraries. About 200 titles of books published since 1980 have been added and obsolete titles were deleted; the entire list numbers about 1,000 books. Certain titles are starred as a guide where library budgets are limited. The books, most with a brief annotation, are listed by category: expository mathematics; foundations and philosophy of mathematics including logic; history and cultural evolution of mathematics; biographies and personalities; science and mathematics; recreational mathematics; arithmetic, numeration, computation; algebra, calculus, analysis; geometry; topology, networks, polyhedrons; theory of numbers; probability, statistics; metric measures; computer science; professional books for teachers; dictionaries and handbooks; publications of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics; publications of the Mathematical Association of America; and periodicals and journals. An appendix lists addresses for current publishers. (MNS)
