Elements of Applied Mathematics
by Cobb Herbert E.
Publisher: Ginn and Company 1911
Number of pages: 292
This book of problems is the result of four years' experimentation in the endeavor to make the instruction in mathematics of real service in the training pf pupils for their future work. We have attempted to relate arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry closely to each other, and to connect all our mathematics with the work in the shops and laboratories.

by Lewis Carroll - MacMillan
This is a short text Carroll wrote to introduce children to logical reasoning, specifically set logic. The text does a good job of explaining basic logical theory in a way that children can understand. A great brain teaser for readers of all ages.

Metamathematics of elementary mathematics. This book can be viewed as a sequel to Mathematics under the Microscope, but with focus shifted on mathematics as it was experienced by children (well, by children who became mathematicians).
by Dmitry Fuchs, Sergei Tabachnikov - American Mathematical Society
This book will be of interest to anyone who likes mathematics, from high school students to accomplished researchers. We do not promise an easy ride: it will take a considerable effort from the reader to follow the details of the arguments.
by A. N. Whitehead - Williams & Northgate
This distinguished book is an introduction to a series of mathematical concepts, a history of their development, and a concise summary of how today's reader may use them. An expertly written book by a brilliant man, filled with valuable insights.
