Discovering the Art of Mathematics is an NSF/Harry Lucas supported project in which we are creating a library of Inquiry-based Learning Guides for Mathematics for Liberal Arts. These guides provide accessible, yet intellectually challenging mathematical explorations. In addition to the guided discovery approach, each guide provides connections between the mathematics and the arts, philosophy, history, humanism and culture.These books contain connections between current research such as the Millennial Problems, historical moments, popular cultural, and philosophical trends.

Check out the following new chapters introduced in this newsletter: "The Mathematics of Tuning an Instrument" and "RK Puzzles".
