About the Book

Maths is one of those tricky subjects that continues to throw us problems, even after our school days. From splitting the bill in a restaurant, to counting out change at a till or working out exchange rates, maths can still send us into a sweat in our everyday adult life. Go Figure is a practical and, dare we say it, enjoyable activity book designed to take the fear out of maths. Whilst guiding readers through the basics of the subject as well as more complex conundrums, there are also exercises to complete and fill-in along the way in order to consolidate learning. Go Figure is the ideal workbook for people who want to refresh what they learnt at school, as well as those who just love the subject.
