Description:

This is a companion website to the Captain Astounding books, which are "richly illustrated" books intended to make mathematics enjoyable for undergraduate students and adult learners. The books are described as humorous stories addressing topics in math, which the website argues makes them not text books. The website provides information about the books, contests and useful links, as well as a section highlighting some math topics from the featured book. For February, 2005, the featured book is called The Power, "a highly entertaining saga about raising a positive number to a positive power." This Math Topics section provides a glimpse at the writing style used in the book to explain such topics as the square or cube of a number.
