Rediscovering Mathematics is also an excellent text for training math teachers at all levels.

Topics range in difficulty and cover a wide range of historical periods, with some examples demonstrating how to uncover mathematics in everyday life, including:

number theory and its application to secure communication over the Internet
the algebraic and combinatorial work of a medieval mathematician, Rabbi, and
applications of probability to sports, casinos, and everyday life.
