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

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

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

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

Following on from Mammoth Science 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 humor of his subject matter, making Mammoth Math the perfect introduction to math for the young and the young-at-heart.
