## Free Digitized 1800 and 1900 Math Books

Several months ago, I felt like I’d hit a goldmine when I first discovered Google has digitized and made available for FREE numerous math books from the 1800s and 1900s, including some of my favorite ones I’d found in old collections. Written back before math was viewed as an intellectual pursuit, many of these old…

## A New Year, a New Look, a New Schedule…and a New Book!

## The Golden Ratio – The Creator’s Mark Throughout His Creation

Updated 11/13/15 Some time ago, someone wrote and suggested I write something on the golden ratio.
