about

The Numberverse addresses the conceptual development of number and shows how to build firm foundations in maths - ideal for use by primary and secondary teachers (of children aged 7-13 years old) or parents who want to inspire their children, but perhaps never enjoyed maths themselves. The Numberverse is especially for people who don't like maths. If you're one of those people who find maths boring, hard, annoying or pointless then The Numberverse is for you to enjoy.

It takes you on journey into the world of numbers, which are over our heads, under our feet, and all around us. In the walls and in church arches. In pine cones and petals. Carry on looking and numbers will start jumping out, patterns will appear before your eyes and you will see the secrets of The Numberverse opening up to you.
  • So would you like to know the history of zero?

  • And how people got along without fractions and percentages before they were invented?
  • Do we even need them, anyway?

If maths has always been a closed book to you, now is the time to turn to the first page.
