Doing Math with Python shows you how to use

Python to delve into high school–level math topics

like statistics, geometry, probability, and calculus.

You’ll start with simple projects, like a factoring

program and a quadratic-equation solver, and then

create more complex projects once you’ve gotten

the hang of things.

Along the way, you’ll discover new ways to explore

math and gain valuable programming skills that you’ll

use throughout your study of math and computer

science. Learn how to:

• Describe your data with statistics, and visualize it

with line graphs, bar charts, and scatter plots

• Explore set theory and probability with programs for

coin flips, dicing, and other games of chance

• Solve algebra problems using Python’s symbolic math

functions

• Draw geometric shapes and explore fractals like

the Barnsley fern, the Sierpin´ski triangle, and the

Mandelbrot set

• Write programs to find derivatives and integrate

functions

Creative coding challenges and applied examples help

you see how you can put your new math and coding

skills into practice. You’ll write an inequality solver, plot

gravity’s effect on how far a bullet will travel, shuffle a

deck of cards, estimate the area of a circle by throwing

100,000 “darts” at a board, explore the relationship

between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio,

and more.

Whether you’re interested in math but have yet to dip

into programming or you’re a teacher looking to bring

programming into the classroom, you’ll find that Python

makes programming easy and practical. Let Python

handle the grunt work while you focus on the math.

Summary: "Uses the Python programming language as a tool to explore high school-level mathematics

like statistics, geometry, probability, and calculus by writing programs to find derivatives, solve

equations graphically, manipulate algebraic expressions, and examine projectile motion. Covers

programming concepts including using functions, handling user input, and reading and manipulating

data"-- Provided by publisher.
