At Sixes and Sevens

At Sixes and Sevens : How to Understand Numbers and Make Maths Easy

An engaging, accessible introduction into how numbers work and why we shouldn't be afraid of them, from maths expert Rachel Riley.

Do you know your fractions from your percentages? Your adjacent to your hypotenuse? And who really knows how to do long division, anyway?

Puzzled already? Don't blame you...

But fret not! You won't be At Sixes and Sevens for long. In this brilliant, well-rounded guide, Countdown's Rachel Riley will take you back to the very basics, allow you to revisit what you learnt at school (and may have promptly forgotten, *ahem*), build your understanding of maths from the get-go and provide you with the essential toolkit to gain confidence in your numerical abilities.

Discover how to divide and conquer, make your decimal debut, become a pythagoras professional and so much more with these easy-to-learn tips and tricks. Packed full of working examples, fool-proof methods, quirky trivia and brainteasers to try from puzzle-pro Dr Gareth Moore, this book is an absolute must-read for anyone and everyone who ever thought maths was 'above' them. Because the truth is: you can do it. What's more, it can be pretty fun too!
