Book Description

17 Oct 2002 0750242876 978-0750242875
Encapsulating a real love of and enthusiasm for numbers, this collection of original poems about maths provides delightful insights into the world of numbers, sometimes thoughtful, but always highly entertaining. It should also provide suitable material for maths and numeracy classes and assemblies. The contents range from the title poem in which Einstein's number-loving parents persuade her of the fun they have with maths, to poems about the magic number nine, the power of the decimal point, and the ancient Inca counting device the Quipo. Interspersed are fun poems like "The Mental Arithmetic Twist" and "The Polygons", and others reflecting on the discoveries of Archimedes (his mother talks to the press about his famous naked dash through town) and Fermat.
