A delightful "maths emotions book" that aims to (1) quash the idea that the subject is all about arduous calculations in pursuit of "the right answers" and (2) instill a feel for how abstraction and logical thinking can lead to deep truths. It nonetheless does touch on the basics of arithmetic, geometry, algebra, analytic geometry, trigonometry, calculus (almost), topology, and author Cheng's specialty area of category theory. Pitched at a very elementary level, its presentation is enlivened by numerous diagrams and Cheng's habit of straying off into matters of social justice and cuisine.… (lisätietoja)

The popularity of this book baffles me. I found the author's constant references to how smart she thinks she is very annoying, especially since most of the descriptions and explanations of the mathematical concepts were quite lacking.

This story explains the experience of two girls who want to bake infinite pi. They learn about baking and what it means to have an infinte amount, numbers go on forever. This book covers shapes and sizes of objects, and the idea of infinity. It could be used during math to help show children different shapes and how objects can be cut infinite number of times. I would probably use this book in a for 3rd or 4th grade classroom.

This book is appropriate for 4th and 5th graders, because it discusses math topics that are a little more challenging (variables). This book is about making pie but using math concepts. I enjoyed this book, I thought it was cool to have such a fun storyline with it so that it wasn't just about math. The illustrations were really great too! I would use this in my classroom during the math unit.
