Welcome To The World Of ‘Maths With Zombies’ …

Maths is boring, right? Well … yes, especially when it’s all about how long it takes train A to pass train B given their relative speeds. So, so boring and not exactly relevant to real life, is it? The thing is, it needn’t be this way. Maths problems can be made both much more interesting and more relevant to everyday life. How? By adding zombies! Zombies make everything better and, of course, as we all know, one day there will be a zombie apocalypse. When that happens the maths problems in this book are the ones you’ll need to be able to solve if you want to survive in a world where the dead walk again …
