    Could these *be* more British? Dry, raucous humor is used to illustrate math principles. FUN MATH, you say? You bet! There's a whole series, the rest of which I have not read: math, science, history, you name it. They're hard to come by, since they are published primarily in the UK, but worth the hunt.

    Descubrí este libro cuando tenia 5 años y lo he amado desde entonces, de una forma inteligente y con un humor increíblemente sarcástico (para ser un libro "infantil") explican conceptos matemáticos y la resolución a problemas complejos. Cabe aclarar que el humor que manejan los libros de esta serie es muy británico y en ocasiones hacen chistes muy locales, fuera de eso creo que es una buena manera de introducir a los niños a las "mortíferas mates".

    Used as part of my teacher training. These books were a great way to engage children in what could be a 'boring' subject. They made it accessible and memorable making children more willing to learn. A wide variety of different topics are covered, to give students knowledge of the broad spectrum in mathematics.

    Adoro este género de livros da Cultura e História Horrível e o seu humor muito próprio!Além de serem simultaneamente educativos e divertidos, contam-nos factos e incidentes que geralmente não chegam aos manuais ou às salas de aula, tornando estes nomes aborrecidos sem rosto em humanos com os quais nos podemos relacionar. Deste modo, a própria matéria se torna mais fácil de relembrar.(view spoiler)[Lodovico Ferrari decifrou as equações quárticas. Poderias, pois, pensar que era um homenzinho tímido com um bigode ralo, que tinha o hábito de ir às compras com a sua tia.Errado! Lodovico bebia, jogava, praguejava e lutava, e acabou por morrer envenenado pela própria irmã.As últimas palavras de Lodovico: Bem me pareceu que a *!30*30 da massa tinha um gosto esquisito.

    I'm really not a maths person so it took me a while to get into this book, but I ended up quite enjoying it and towards the end I actually tried out a lot of the calculations and tricks for myself. Very cool format to get kids into maths with a wide range of subjects covered. Recommended if you're looking for a quick, humorous introduction to basic maths.

    Прочетена с удоволствие за една вечер; жалко, че не съм открила поредицата, когато още ходех на училище :-)

    Great for late primary age maths students. Interesting, quite funny. The kids enjoy them. Good for a child who might find maths boring. Read aloud works well.
