5.0 out of 5 stars Even if you hate math, you'll love this book., March 10, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The I Hate Mathematics! Book (A Brown Paper School Book) (Paperback)
If you hear the word mathematics and cringe, you should read The I Hate Mathematics! Book. This book showed me how math can be a lot of fun. Unlike the math textbooks at school, The I Hate Mathematics! Book includes dozens of mind-boggling games and puzzles that challenge you to use your math skills. The book also includes math tricks you can play on your family and friends.
One of the math tricks could turn out to be very profitable. It is called Doing Dishes. To do this trick you need one adult and a never-ending flow of dirty dishes. Ask the adult to pay you one penny the first day you wash the dishes and double it each day. By the end of the month you'll be rich!
My favorite chapter is the one on Street Math. This chapter told me about math games that I can do when I'm outside in my neighborhood. Some involve the sidewalk, people's hats and even shoelaces! You would be surprised how math relates to so many things.
I think that The I Hate Mathematics! Book is informative and fun to read. I recommend it to people who don't have a great interest in math, people who want to know more about math and, of course, to people who already love math!
