Hi everyone, I am doing a Postgraduate Certificate in Mathematics and I have to write a critical review. To be honest I haven't completely understand the instruction of my teacher. Can someone help me understand it ? And if you have any suggestions of article, essay that can be interesting to review, please let me know. Here are the instructions: <<Write a critical review of one or more texts of your choice, evaluating in particular the clarity of their articulation of the relevance of mathematics to a broad lay audience. You are encouraged to refer to other texts and/or reviews in your work, but you must cite any such references appropriately. Your review should be approximately 1000 words in length.>> The sentence I don't understand is "evaluating in particular the clarity of their articulation of the relevance of mathematics to a broad lay audience". Does that mean that the text I choose has to be in relation with the relevance of mathematics ? Thank you for help. Matthew

It seems so, and it says "text", so why not choose a book, such as Mathematics for the Million by Lancelot Hogben (ISBN 9780393310719)? There should be plenty of previous reviews of it.
