Wrong Door

Adrián Paenza

NON FICTION. SUDAMERICANA, 2014. 384 PAGES.

How would we feel about maths if, when we were children, instead of being made to do fractions we were encouraged to work out how many stickers we needed to complete our World Cup album or why the queue next to us always moves faster. As Adrián Paenza says, we're introduced to maths through the wrong door when we need to be told that maths is wonderful. This book invites us to get reacquainted with maths and appreciate its beauty, showing how it can teach us to observe and analyze our everyday lives in new ways.

This book will show you how, by working together, we can guess the weight of a bull, tell whether it's a corner or goal kick, how many faces of a die can been seen at the same time and how Netflix predicts which film we're going to watch. Strategy, intuition, sport and games are just some of the paths taken in this new book by the world's best maths teacher.
