There's nothing in this lame, low budget stoner flick that even peeps above the parapet of the ordinary. Paul Arendt.
About as funny as watching a cute animal die a long slow death - and probably as painful. Glen Ferris. No snob to low-brow ridiculousness when it's actually unexpected, I'll admit to being amused exactly once.
Aaron Hillis. At least Gaulke and Wolf didn't have to go far to kill their reputation: During the jungle piranha attack scene, a mallard floats by in the background.
Amy Nicholson. Richard Propes. Strange Wilderness offers little in the way of laughs or depth, but if low-brow comedy is your niche, then you could do a lot worse.
Ed Travis. This lame wildlife safari can at least claim to be environmentally friendly: all the jokes are recycled. Kaleem Aftab. Dave White.
Any resemblance to comedy is purely coincidental and unintentional. The only reason to chuckle is to prove you haven't died while watching it.
Its credits should be handed to a mercenary. It's not a film. It's the Zeroes' worst pop-culture excretion.

On my last official day with my Grade 8 class, I did not want to teach them more about fractions. The cards I got back were all across the scale, from earnest to uninterested.
Quite a few were about pi. I decided to take the questions and weave them into a broader narrative about the use On my last official day with my Grade 8 class, I did not want to teach them more about fractions.
I decided to take the questions and weave them into a broader narrative about the use, purpose, and history of mathematics. I wanted to talk about how we figured out math and discuss some of the milestones in mathematical discovery.
I decided that I should probably make at least one before I was finished my undergraduate degree. Plus, my partner student teacher had the Grade 8s make their own prezis for a history project.
So I made my first prezi to talk to Grade 8s about math. Part of my goal as a teacher is to expose my students to the wider world of mathematics, to impress upon them that math is more than just skills and concepts they learn out of a textbook in the fulfilment of curriculum expectations.
I want to make the usefulness and purpose of all that math explicit—and I want to go even further and show that math can be beautiful. Because the history of mathematics—and the lives of those caught up in it—is intensely fascinating.
Or at least I find it so. Stories of love, betrayal, comedy, and tragedy pervade story of math. Because doing math is ultimately an act of discovery and of creativity—and those acts are what make us human.
Amir D. Aczel recognizes this in A Strange Wilderness , which is a history of mathematics disguised as a biography of mathematicians.
Lucky for me, my Grade 8s had not heard the Eureka! So I got to tell it to them for the first time! This is a laudable goal, and one that coincides with my own.
Mathematical concepts just exist, passed down to us by the teacher and the textbook. These people were all living, breathing individuals at some point in history, with the same mundane concerns as any human being.
For reason, though, through a combination of genius and effort and luck, they made a lasting contribution to our wealth of knowledge as a species.
Aczel brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to this endeavour. I discovered a lot of cool things about names I already knew, and I met a few fresh faces as well.
I marvelled at the chain of events that led to people like Isaac Newton becoming the juggernauts of their day. It was only through the intervention of his uncle that he returned to finish his education and end up at Cambridge.
I shudder to imagine how history would have played out differently if Newton had stayed on a farm! Aczel seems to do his best to hit the high notes.
That being said, he makes some curious decisions about who to leave out. Certainly he focuses less on the math itself and more on the mathematicians, as is the case with the final mathematician, the reclusive Alexander Grothendieck.
Whatever the reason, as much as I enjoyed A Strange Wilderness in small doses, it took me longer to read than I expected.
In combination with other resources, for it is certainly not exhaustive, A Strange Wilderness is a fine book on the history of mathematics.
Aczel will often discuss the details of the mathematics that his featured geniuses discovered. The math in this math book consists mostly of shout-outs, an understanding of which is far from essential for enjoying this book.
As usual, it comes down to what you want out of your mathematics book. Mar 12, Bryan Higgs rated it liked it Shelves: history-mathematics , mathematics.
Ordinarily, I like such books, and have read quite a few of them. However, I found this one a little on the lifeless side -- too much a short description of facts which left me not much impressed.
I've read quite a few books on the history of mathematics both specific and general that were much better than this one, so I'm trying to figure out what the difference was.
Here are my conclusions: 1 The descriptions were a little too cold and purely informative to me. They didn't have much life to Ordinarily, I like such books, and have read quite a few of them.
They didn't have much life to them. Some of the other reviews said that they couldn't follow the math, which surprised me because what was covered was pretty elementary, and lacked detail.
The other books I'd read had a more balanced approach -- often alternating chapters of history with the math albeit not in great detail -- these were all laymen's books 3 There were some odd omissions -- the most obvious to me was Bernhard Riemann, who was mentioned but was not given the same coverage as others.
Also, while the relatively recent solution of Fermat's Last Theorem was mentioned, I would have thought that it merited a little more coverage -- although perhaps Andrew Wiles, the major contributor to that solution may not yet be considered one of the great mathematicians.
While there were some pictures of mathematical items, I felt that there were not enough of these -- but that would have required more text about the math, in order to explain it.
Surely some kind of summary would have been appropriate? This said, the book is an easy read. The author, Amir Aczel does have a pleasant style.
Sep 12, Courtney rated it liked it Shelves: good-reads-first-reads , own , Math and science were my two favorite subjects in school and to this day I love when I'm challenged with a difficult problem at work.
I was intrigued with the description of this book, to learn more about the lives of the great mathematicians, to learn more about the men and women!
This book turned out to be more about math than about the mathematicians behind the math. It was an exciting read at first, learning about the Greeks and Egyptian Math and science were my two favorite subjects in school and to this day I love when I'm challenged with a difficult problem at work.
It was an exciting read at first, learning about the Greeks and Egyptians, the philosophers, the East, and the math that was developed during this time.
I was especially excited that I could follow much of the math described! But as the book progressed to more recent history, I was expecting the stories of the mathematicians to have passion, excitement, and details, but the stories were more facts than passion and loaded with math.
It's understandable to have the descriptions of the math associated to the particular person, but I was expecting the math to be the side-note to the life story, but I found the stories to be the side-note to the math.
Details were left out of stories that would have added intrigue, such as the story about the two young researchers who were looking for Grothendieck's hideout in the final pages of the book.
