Overview

This book thinks you're a maths genius. So chuck away your calculator and get stuck in!

Inside you'll do all sorts of mathematical stuff, but not like anything you've done in your maths classes in school. You'll break codes, draw cool patterns, hunt for objects and get wet feet.

There are even portable maths lab pages for you to cut out, fold, and play games with. By the end, you'll be an official maths genius - and you won't even have added 2 plus 2.
