Cool Maths 50 Fantastic Facts for Kids of All Ages Synopsis

Inside this mega-jam-packed book are fifty fact-tastic ways to advance your maths skills so you'll never be outnumbered by numbers again!

From core curriculum techniques such as multiplying multiples to calculating calculus and probability and division, right through to working out tricky statistics, formulas and equations on outside of the classroom, Cool Maths will help you work your way out of every day situations in a way that you'll never forget.

Cool Maths - An Introduction - The Three Rs – Reading, Writing and Arithmetic – are the mainstay of every education system, and as such always come across as a little dull. J.K. Rowling has done her bit in recent years to make reading cooler and more fun, and has even inspired many young people to try their hand at writing,and that’s great. But what about poor old arithmetic?
Well for one thing, these days no one calls it arithmetic. No one even calls it mathematics any more, it’s just plain and simple maths – or if you are American, math.
Okay, maths may be plain and simple to people who are not willing to understand it, but to others it is a place where magic and wonder exists within numbers and equations, theories and formulas. It can bring the ordinary world to life in new, exciting ways and turn a humdrum situation into one of endless, impossible, improbable fun. Yes, you did just read the words MATHS and FUN in the same paragraph, and now you’ve just read
them in the same sentence, but how can that really be achieved? Here’s how …
Maths is not just 2 + 2 = 4. Maths can help you predict the outcome of seemingly random events and the improbable. It can also allow you to fi nd out how high Big Ben is, for example, without even measuring it. Maths can let you do the impossible and it can confound all your expectations. Maths is everywhere. It is in everything we see, feel, know and do. It is the fundamental understanding of the importance of all types of maths, from geometry to trigonometry, calculus to probability, that has enabled man to walk on the Moon, send robots to Mars, allows technology to work back here on Earth and, most importantly, maths – and the process of computing and analyzing data – is how your brain gets you from A to B. Leave your doubts at the door and jump into the world of Cool Maths.
