It was a very enjoyable book to read, in my opinion The language was simple, so the complex mathematics that was discussed was straightforward and easy to perceive As well as this, Eastaway used everyday examples to broaden the understanding of the topics covered, which would easily call for dinner conversations with the family if there is an awkward silence to get them into maths Some sections I felt I did have to read over twice, but then again, the topic of infinity was discussed, and not eve [...]
This book is full of interesting maths facts, card tricks, word problems and other fun facts and puzzles Every chapter had something new for me to learn, not all of which would be traditionally viewed as mathematics by the average layperson I found this book both fascinating and incredibly informative and I recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest.I should warn you, though, some of the chapters will definitely make your brain hurt especially the chapter about infinity
Who said mathematics couldn t be fun This book is very different from what I generally read but I really enjoyed it The authors show us how maths are everywhere in our daily lives and proceed with understandable and often funny explanations You don t need to be a math genius to get it and you do learn a lot.
This is a well written and very entertaining book, full of interesting facts and observations, and with some challenging puzzles thrown in It s a great book to dip into and it contains some tricks that you could try out on family or friends It won t turn you into a mathematician but it might make you think.
Interesting enough, well written and easy to read Although I recognised some of the popular maths material as topics I already knew, there were enough surprises here for it to be worth reading.
An interesting and entertaining read which does give some Ah, Aha and Haha of Maths, as promised Eastaway doesn t get into detailed e plantations but, even for a non mathematician like me, it s a bit frustrating always to have to take his word for it.
interesting so far, light and easy style to make you think out of the box.
Interesting little book on day to day maths
I enjoyed this, and it s right up D s street So, recommended for 10 year olds who think maths is really cool.
It wasn t gripping reading but there were some interesting and amusing maths tricks and quirks in this book.
