Math, so often a mystery to children, is simply explained in I Wish I Knew That Math.

The concepts addressed include, but are certainly not limited to:
  • Basic operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • The math behind money
  • The connections between math and music
  • Irrational numbers - Why did Pythagoras have one of his followers killed just for talking about the square root of 2?
  • The value of zero
  • Angles - from acute, all the way to reflexive
  • Coordinates and the Cartesian plane
  • Probability - What is the likelihood of being struck by lightning?
  • Logic - induction, deduction and Sherlock Holmes
  • Computers and algorithms
  • Code breaking - from ancient Rome to super computers


With its readable style and engaging examples, I Wish I Knew That: Math can give children a head start or a helping hand in their understanding of math. Even grownups could learn a thing or two that they may have forgotten or maybe things they never learned at all
