Was mathematics invented or discovered? Why do we have negative numbers? And how much math does a pineapple know? Love it or hate it, math is the language that helps us to work with numbers, patterns, processes, and the rules that define the universe. While decoding how math permeates our everyday lives and facilitates every branch of science, Anne Rooney explains its basic concepts in accessible language, and her illustrated guide tackles such concepts as probability, infinity, and even the possibility of alien life.
