1089 and All That: A Journey into Mathematics
1089 and All That: A Journey into Mathematics
by David Acheson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.72

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 5 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would definitely put this book in the category of 'must read' for those students who are coming to the end of a GCSE course at school. There are aspects of mathematics which are at A level standard in this book but it is so well-written and entertaining that I could call it 'inspiring'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 5 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting mix of mathematics problems and short stories from the history of mathematics. It would be a challenge for those students starting GCSE but, if student interest in maths is waning around A-level decision time, I think it could inspire them to give A level maths a try. Also, for the more mature members of the public with an interest in maths, there are entertaining stories in this book that you probably have never met before. Definitely recommend.
