Synopsis

Mathematics Masterclasses Stretching the Imagination by Michael Sewell

This is a valuable resource of non-syllabus material for mathematics in school education and science teachers at secondary school level, teenagers and parents. It contains written versions of Royal Institution masterclasses on a wide selection of topics in pure and applied mathematics, and very little knowledge is assumed. Topics include chaos theory, meteorology, storage limitations of computers, population growth and decay, and the mechanics of dinosaurs. This book shows that mathematics can be fun!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
