Reviews for The Language of the Universe: A Visual Exploration of Mathematics

Organised into four sections, every concept and idea is clearly explained in a short paragraph or diagram designed to clearly illustrate the point in hand. The vibrantly-illustrated pages make the book inviting and intriguing, helping to lesson the potential fear of encountering some pretty big ideas. * Library Girl and Book Boy * But this book actually makes maths look interesting! The huge cover alone, with its glorious sparkles and colour, shows that it's not just about dull numbers. * Childtastic Books *
