Summary

Explains how the principles of maths work and looks at examples of how maths is part of our everyday lives.

You may not realise it, but maths controls just about everything in our world, from cracking codes to winning game shows, from predicting comets to solving crimes.

This unique book reveals where our most important maths ideas come from (you'll be surprised!), explains really simply how they work (good for homework, zzzz), and identifies the extraordinary things you can do with them, from measuring a pyramid to becoming a trillionaire. It might change your mind about maths forever!
