The Philosophy Foundation
By Andrew Day, Peter Worley (Editor)

The Numberverse is especially for people who don't like maths. If you're one of those people who find maths boring, hard, annoying or pointless then The Numberverse is for you to enjoy.

First we'll look at stuff you find all around you. In the walls and in church arches. In pine cones and petals. Carry on looking and numbers will start jumping out, patterns will appear before your eyes, and you will see the secrets of The Numberverse opening up to you. And we won't stop there. Would you like to know the history of zero? And what people did before zero was invented? And how people got along without fractions and percentages before they were invented? Do we even need them, anyway?

It's all in The Numberverse. And you will understand every word of it if you can understand what you are reading now. It's true: if you can count, and you are curious well, then you have all the knowledge you need for the journey.

You can't expect to pluck a new topic out of the ether if it seems completely unrelated to any previous knowledge you might have, and the same goes for your students. For primary and secondary teachers to use with children aged 7 to 13 years, The Numberverse takes you through a series of thought experiments, activities, stories and histories which build the foundations for a deep understanding (and maybe even love!) of maths.

If maths has always been a closed book to you, now is the time to turn to the first page.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no test ANYWHERE in this book.
