Imagine a world without numbers. How would we ask for three scoops of ice cream? Or know whether weve got 60 minutes left to play with our friends rather than 60 seconds? Where does zero come from and what language do computers understand?
Without the wonderful invention of numbers how would we be able to count, measure, and compare? 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. In Great Numbers is a fun book that will help children realize how fascinating and fun numbers can be.
This book is suitable for readers over 6 years old.
In Great Numbers will introduce children to the fascinating world of numbers and explains how they help us in our daily life.
