Description

In Great Numbers introduces the fascinating world of numbers and explains how they help us in our daily life. Imagine a world without numbers! How would we ask for three scoops of ice cream? Or know whether we've got 60 minutes left to play with our friends rather than 60 seconds? Why does a minute have 60 seconds and not 100? 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 realise how fascinating and fun numbers can be.
