Six Septembers: Mathematics for the Humanist (Patrick Juola, et al)

Scholars of all shades are focusing on resources that offer significant potential for the development of humanistic research. This book's goals are to explain the ideas that underpin the mathematics that readers are likely to encounter and to reveal the notation in a way that entirely removes that particular obstacle.

This book serves as an introduction to the abilities that humanist academics need to confidently engage challenging technical topics. Simply put, this book is concerned with the things that a technical article's author understands but doesn't mention. We aim to clarify some of these assumptions for the novice because mathematics, like any field, functions under a framework of shared assumptions.

We cover discrete mathematics, abstract algebra, probability and statistics, calculus, differential equations, logic and proof, probability and statistics, and probability and statistics. It is conceivable to take a course of study that does not include all of these topics; however, this is not at all how these subjects are often taught in school curricula. Our ordering, which is heavily cumulative like mathematics itself, stems from our perception of how to best explain mathematical ideas to humanists.
