This book was an educational but fun math book. The pages have a lot going on, on each page and are very colorful. This book covers a lot of different math topics. This book has history on certain things and tips on how to help with math. For example it talks about how you can multiply by nine on your fingers. definitely not your typical math book. ( )

An informational book about numbers that covers a whole spectrum of topics. The book was structured in a way like the Guinness Book of World Records books that I remember reading, with multiple facts on each page. It was fun to read, but could be confusing with the way it is structured since it is somewhat random with some of the facts. ( )

What a great overall book about math. Not only does it have math but this book has everything that you need to know!! It's perfect for a math lesson, but not to be read all at once.

Go Figure! is a math book that teaches more than just numbers. It actually has some interesting facts about the history of math as well as a lot of great visuals to make understanding the concepts easier for those who aren't really that crazy about math (like myself). I would highly recommend it to anyone struggling in math who needs a reference guide. It would also be a great tool for teachers to keep in the classroom for anyone who wants to look something up or privately review something. ( )

This book is a math lover’s dream. I don’t believe this book should be read through completely, rather it should be used as reference or a type of encyclopedia. This book covers almost everything related to math from the origin of numbers to patterns to geometric shapes. Apart from explaining different concepts related to mathematics, it also asks the reader different mathematical questions and problems in which to solve. This book can be used as a reference book in a classroom and help students understand mathematical concepts. ( )
