I took a "math for poets" class in college. It was a survey of off-the-beaten path math topics, like the Fibonacci sequence, that don't usually get covered in the US's march-towards-calculus approach that everyone gets exposed to in elementary and secondary school.
It made me realize what a narrow view of math I had my whole life.
I'd like to discover/rediscover this area again. What are your less-than-well-known math topics? I'd love to hear some book and website recommends as well.
