If I had another opportunity to give a similar talk I know of several things I'd do to improve, including providing a handout and taking more time to prepare for the particular time constraint. Hopefully by that time I would make more progress on a little book I've been working on called "Christ-centered Mathematics: Daily Math Devotionals." In a book format I would be able to better cite sources and give a fuller explanation than the tri-fold Topical Mathematical Memory Verses permits.
Books that I would recommend:
- John Byl "The Divine Challenge on Matter, Mind, Math, and Meaning"
- John Byl "God and Cosmos: A Christian View of Time, Space, and the Universe"
- James Nickel "Mathematics: Is God Silent"
- "Foundations of Christian Scholarship: Essays in the Van Til Perspective" especially chapter 9 "A Biblical View of Mathematics" by Vern S. Poythress... *** I just discovered that this and other articles by Vern Poythress are available online. I have some reading to do, like "Creation & Mathematics; or what does God have to do with Numbers?"
- "Truth and the Transcendent" by Dr. Zimmerman
- Mathematics in a Postmodern Age - Here is a review about it on MAA website.
- Also while finding links for this list I came across another interesting article about the goal of mathematics education.
