An offbeat guide to maths from award-winning author and illustrator David Macaulay

David Macaulay's troupe of curious mammoths lead you through the basics of numbers, calculation, geometry, measurement, and much more in this unconventional and highly original guide to maths.

From computer games to bridges, shopping malls to game shows, maths is all around you if you look closely enough. In Mammoth Maths, not only will you learn the essential principles of maths, you'll enjoy learning about them. 

From start to finish, the mammoths are your guide as they seek to understand the maths! These intrepid demonstrators will go to incredible lengths to educate and entertain, as they wrestle with adding or subtracting large numbers, measuring angles, reading a 24-hour clock, creating a pie chart, solving equations, and much more.

Observing and recording the mammoths' behaviour is best-selling illustrator David Macaulay, whose How Machines Work won the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize in 2016. Renowned for his ability to explain complex ideas with simple genius, Macaulay captures the oddball humour of his subject matter, making Mammoth Maths the perfect introduction to maths for the young and the young-at-heart.
