Great maths book review by Charles Smith

Book review by I have just bought a book at Exclusive Books which I would highly recommend for all Maths teachers. It's called Maths 1001 by Richard Elves. I covers "Absolutely everything you need to know about Mathematics in 1001 bite-sized explanations." It cost R221 but it is worth every cent. It's going to take a long time to get through it all but the presentation and the content make it something I'm going to want to jump into on a regular basis. The explanations cover topics from "Factors & Multiples" to "Game Theory" to "Combinatorics" and "Cryptography." Most explanations are completed in less than 20 lines.

A great source for interesting lesson starters or challenges for inquiring minds. If your school has a "reading" period then this is the ideal book.

Get it - if you love's worth it.

Here's a link to view the table of contents.
