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!
The book gives lots of fun, practical exercises and is loaded with great concepts and ideas.
