Press Reviews

Maths is, according to this addition to Usborne’s popular See Inside series “a way of finding out about the world”. With maths, “you can count things, and measure things, and solve all sorts of problems”. The emphasis is not on how to do it, but rather on the uses maths can be put to and the enjoyment to be found in playing with mathematical ideas. The focus is on applying maths to everyday functions and the full colour pages are cheerfully illustrated with small figures busily engaged in a variety of activities. Final spreads add to the prevailing sense of fun with the games that employ mathematical and logical skills. While the maths covered loosely corresponds to, and builds on, that learned in years 3 and 4, confident younger mathematicians will enjoy exploring the new ideas to be found here.

Reader Reviews

amazing book
This is an amazing book and I find it really easy to understand. I have learnt lots of new things from it and I hope you will too. There are some fun maths questions on the back page to try out on your family and friends.

This book genuinely makes Maths a process of discovery. It is hugely imaginative and my 5 year old loves it. Some of the maths is beyond his grasp at present but it draws children in so they lose any apprehension about working with more challenging concepts. Parents love it too.
