Incredible historical stories explore the often surprising origins of the maths we use today, from number sequences to trigonometry. Crazy facts, magic tricks, and mathematical brainteasers will amuse and entertain even the most reluctant math students. Find out why an hour has 60 rather than 100 minutes and how codes keep our secrets safe. Colourful and uncluttered illustrations make mathematical explanations easy to grasp in seconds and make this user-friendly book simple to navigate and a joy to browse and read.

What's the Point of Maths? is perfect for those who need some inspiration when it comes to numbers. It combines stories from history with simple visual explanations to bring maths to life. From measuring a pyramid to predicting comets, from counting like the Babylonians to becoming a trillionaire, it shows children why core maths ideas were discovered and invented and how to apply them today - in the classroom and the real world!

Accompanying the fascinating stories are puzzles, games, and amazing facts, as well as a lively challenge to help bring each of the topics to life. Stylish, colourful illustrations make the maths fun and unintimidating, while simple diagrams and steps make explanations easy to grasp in seconds. Throughout the ebook, worked examples show readers how to solve simple maths challenges, encouraging children to improve their maths skills with hands-on practice.
