Product Description

Math can show up in the most unlikely places! When the schools in Jeremy’s town ban math, all the kids cheer, all except his friend Sam, a self-proclaimed mathnik, who sets out to prove that math is not only important, but fun. Running parallel to the fictional narrative are informative sidebars that discuss the weird, puzzling, and amusing aspects of mathematics. Some topics covered are math in nature, art, music, magic and tricks, crime solving, and sports.

First published in 2007, this revised edition features more visual elements, simplified explanations of the more advanced topics, and updated information including computer animation and algorithms. New artwork by Lil Crump brings the pages to life with lively cartoons, while photographs illustrate key concepts. The dynamic layout invites even math-phobic readers to dive in.
