Math and extreme sports have a lot in common. Those who venture into extreme sports seek the outer limits of their potential. Math, too, is a daring pursuit of the unknown. In this book you'll discover how mathematical principles are applied in different situations in the world of extreme sports, while you learn about people like E.J.
