Children will find out that being a mathematician isn't just about scrawling numbers on a dusty chalkboard - it is part of our everyday lives!

This book invites you to investigate maths in a playful and hands-on way, using things from around your home: find out about 3D shapes by designing and building your own city, learn about measurement by growing your own plant, and uncover the mystery of coordinates through drawing your own treasure map. If you like solving problems, making things, and learning facts, then this is the book for you, mathematician!
