With engaging clarity and entertaining anecdotes, Eddie demonstrates the intricacy of maths in all the things we love - from music in our iPods to our credit cards. Filled with humour and heart, this book will fascinate, entertain and illuminate the maths that surrounds us.

Memorising dry, remote formulas. Crunching of meaningless numbers. These unfortunate learning experiences explain why maths is commonly maligned as a subject more endured than enjoyed. Card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups, killer butterflies, music, lightning and more all illuminate the world of maths that surrounds us. And Eddie Woo, one of the world's most inspirational mathematics teachers, will show us how. Join us on Monday 3 December for this very special event, as the Australian Local Hero of the Year and proud University of Sydney graduate returns to campus to share his discoveries, answer your questions and reintroduce everyone to an immensely practical, genuinely surprising subject.
Why is a rainbow curved? Why aren't left-handers extinct? How is a sunflower like a synchronised swimmer? Why is 'e' a magic number? Because maths is all about patterns, and our universe is extraordinarily patterned.

Post a Comment Buzz Words Books would love to hear what you think. Reviewed by Dianne Bates. Much has been written about Eddie Woo, an outstanding teacher of maths at high school level and short-listed as one of the top ten teachers in the world in fact he is currently a teacher at a Sydney school who has won praise for explaining maths to students through his Woodtube channel, so they overcome their dislike and fear of it. This is not a conventional book about maths which would normally have more numbers than letters. Rather, it is a collection of essays which explain the way maths is used in life.
