It is very important to show the child the relationship between mathematics and real life and have time to do this in elementary school, and maybe even in senior preschool age, when children are most inquisitive and receptive. Books will help us with this!

If a child is bored doing math, solving equations, building graphs and understanding incomprehensible icons, this book will help:Meet Mathematics!» Author — Karina Luar. She will talk about the mathematics that surrounds us everywhere, helping us travel the world, build houses and roads, paint pictures and compose music! Whatever profession you choose — mathematics is needed everywhere! The reader is waiting for a story about how a person learned to count, invented numbers and why he uses mathematics today. You can build a fractal yourself, find the Fibonacci sequence in the refrigerator and learn how to encrypt your messages like Caesar.

The second book in the set: “Mathematics. History of ideas and discoveries. Authors — Iosif Rybakov, Maria Astrina. This is the history of mathematics from ancient times to the present day: what questions were asked by scientists in every era, how solutions to some problems gave rise to completely unexpected discoveries in other areas of knowledge, how the language of science changed. The book describes not so much individual facts or personalities from the history of science as the very history of the development of ideas. The authors talk in an accessible and entertaining way about how the development of mathematics took place in the dialogue between scientists of different eras. From the circumference to the number π, from Pythagorean triples to Fermat’s theorem, from the law of universal gravitation to the theory of relativity, from Euclid’s axioms to multidimensional Riemann spaces.

The books were prepared and published by the publishing house «Walk into History» in cooperation with the Polytechnic Museum.
