Description

Have you ever wondered how Room 101 got its name, or what you measure in oktas? Which number links Alice in Wonderland, rainbows and the Egyptian Book of the Dead? You will find the answers in Numbers. The book is full of facts, both mathematical and cultural, tantalising problems and anecdotes. A light-hearted reference book for all ages. This new edition has been updated with dozens of new articles, illustrations and photographs in full colour. The main entries span the numbers from zero to 200. Some press comments on the first edition - "Beautifully and devotedly made, this large thin book is a cheerful and eccentric guide to the integers..." - Philip and Phylis Morrison in Scientific American "This delightful A4 book is a must for every school library. Beautifully illustrated in full colour..." - Sue Pope in Mathematics Teachingshow more
