Math Myths for the Modern Child is a collection of hilarious stories that have little bits of math in them. In Fractioned Fairy Tale you'll see that only the village idiot would think of adding unlike fractions! In The Storyteller the poor man can only talk in numbers, but you'll be surprised to see who can understand him. In Bucket-O-Nanos BD learns hexadecimal in order to make the color of his room awesome, but when his two moms find out they aren't going to be happy! The classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty left out the part where the fairies learned to reduce fractions, so Piquant Sauce Reduction fills in that detail, and how important it is to stopping the child-hungry ogre. And finally, in the suspense-filled CATesian Coordinates Joe learns to train remote control cats in an important government program. He grows to understand Cartesian coordinates and more importantly, his very special cat, Moe. But then he has decide if he can take Moe on a terrifying mission!
You'll have fun reading these stories and you won't even notice that you've learned some math. Promise. It won't hurt a bit.
And if you like math, wow, you're going to love this book!
