Synopsis

Why aren't left-handers extinct? What makes a rainbow round? How is a pancreas . . . like a pendulum? These may not look like math questions, but they are-because they all have to do with patterns. And mathematics, at heart, is the study of patterns. That realization changed Eddie Woo's life-by turning the 'dry' subject he dreaded in high school into a boundless quest for discovery. Now an award-winning math teacher, Woo sees patterns everywhere: in the 'branches' of blood vessels and lightning, in the growth of a savings account and a sunflower, even in his morning cup of tea! Here are twenty-six bite-size chapters on the hidden mathematical marvels that encrypt our email, enchant our senses, and even keep us alive-from the sine waves we hear as 'music' to the mysterious golden ratio. This book will change your mind about what math can be. We are all born mathematicians-and It's a Numberful World.
