Mathematics is a human endeavour of long standing and is deeply ingrained in Western philosophy and thinking. This illustrated book presents the science of mathematics in an innovative and engaging way. Its aim is to make maths more accessible and appealing to secondary students (Years 7–10) and young adults by using a ‘graphic novel’ concept to tell the story. The stunning contemporary illustrations of artist Matt Huyhn are accompanied by easy-to-read text. The book is also designed to meet the needs of secondary school teachers. It contains a set of related maths problems and answers that align with the new national curriculum and a list of resources for further study.
