About the Book
Incredible ideas + interactive flaps and tabs = math made easy!

An interactive, engaging and exciting exploration of math, from the invention of zero to the geometry of a donut! Clear, humorous text, bright illustrations, and interactive novelties help explain such topics as numbers, geometry, probability, transformations, and statistics. The focus is on making math accessible and exciting, so each topic has an investigation for young numbersmiths to try at home.

About the Author
Jonathan Litton has a pair of math-teaching parents and briefly became a math teacher himself before becoming a children’s book author. Over the last five years he has written and edited a number of nonfiction titles.

Thomas Flintham studied illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. He also illustrated the award-winning Super Science series and loves using his funky, cartoony illustrations to bring nonfiction subjects to life.

My Take on the Book
Math is a huge part of our lives. In this story mathematical terms are explained . Some of them are : measurement, probability, statistics, fractions, percentages and numbers. The story continues with a discussion of geometry which includes: polygons, circles , puzzles, and solids.

There are games using math. Interesting ways to measure are also included.

If you like math, this book will definitely give you not only information, but thinking challenges as well.
