In Great Numbers
In Great Numbers: How Numbers Shape the World We Live In
Imagine a world without numbers. How would we ask for three scoops of ice cream? Or know whether we’ve got 60 minutes left to play with our friends rather than 60 seconds? Over the centuries, people have conceived more and more clever ways to use them to understand the world around us, build cities, find our way home, and more. This title is a fun book that will help children realise how fascinating and exciting numbers can be.
