As I mentioned to you earlier, we thoroughly enjoyed and had a great deal of success with your text this Fall.  I am now using the texts for our Advanced Programming class.

Oh, but first - if this course does happen I'll be using the Litvins' Math for the Digital Age.  I love that book.  I told my prinicipal, "You usually don't say of a text that 'It's beautiful', but this one is.  This is a beautiful text."

I just think "digital math" (whatever we call it) is hovering in the global Zeitgeist these days, MFTDA [Mathematics for the Digital Age and Programming in Python] another harbinger, a positive sign on the horizon.

Subject: RE: Math and Python 3

We could not be more pleased [with your Math and Python book].  We are finding out that our students are progressing much faster by starting with Python than with either VB.net or C++, which is what we had been using.  will discuss the updated text with our staff soon and the teacher materials as well!  We have been "sold" on Skylight Publishing for a long time and it is continuing!

There's a deep need for the topics you developed in your book that's why i am trying to let them be studied in our schools.

Also, i am designing a short summer course for high school students where i will entirely talk about discrete math and programming in python, mainly using your book.

Great Book On Math & Python Programming (amazon.com review)

I do not write reviews as a rule, but this book is worth it!  You can actually learn the various aspects of math as well as python programming.  This will come in real handy when programming python on a higher level.  I am a new program and a book like this was sorely needed!

Willis Cook, Pittsburg, CA

A beautiful book on math with programming as a bonus (amazon.com review)

It is a wonderful book containing number theory and much, more math.  The explainations will be understood by the average high school student as well as the honor student.  The programming examples and problems will challenge all students.  Using Python as the language removes the complexity of a language like Java.  This allows students to do the programming while concentrating on the math.
