- Loving and Hating Mathematics by Reuben Hersh; Vera John-SteinerLoving and Hating Mathematics is about the hidden human, emotional, and social forces that shape mathematics and affect the experiences of students and mathematicians.
- The Mathematics of Various Entertaining Subjects by Jennifer Beineke (Editor); Jason Rosenhouse (Editor); Raymond Smullyan (Foreword by)The history of mathematics is filled with major breakthroughs resulting from solutions to recreational problems. This book presents fascinating problems and solutions in recreational mathematics.
- College Mathematics Through Baseball by Fred WorthTopics covered include logical fallacies, unit conversions, statistics, probability, finance, geometry, modeling and voting theory.
- Mathematical Writing by Franco VivaldiThis book teaches the art of writing mathematics, an essential -and difficult- skill for any mathematics student. Mathematical Writing will be of interest to all mathematics students who want to raise the quality of their coursework, reports, exams, and dissertations.

- Hidden Figures by Margot Lee ShetterlyThe phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America's greatest achievements in space.
- Albert Einstein by Albrecht Folsing; Ewald Osers (Translator)Albrecht Folsing, relying on previously unknown sources and letters, brings Einstein's "genius" into focus. He attempts to reconstruct Einstein's thought in the context of the state of research at the turn of the century.
- Rise of the Rocket Girls by Nathalia HoltIn the 1940s and 50s, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they didn't turn to male graduates. Rather, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible.
- God Created the Integers by Stephen Hawking (Editor)Bestselling author and physicist Stephen Hawking explores the "masterpieces" of mathematics, 25 landmarks spanning 2,500 years and representing the work of 15 mathematicians.
- Julia by Constance ReidJulia is the story of Julia Bowman Robinson, the gifted and highly original mathematician who during her lifetime was recognized in ways that no other woman mathematician had ever been recognized.
