Big Numbers, Paperback Book

Description

Big Numbers is a brilliant and imaginative book for 10 to 12 year olds which paints a fascinating picture of the comparative scale of phenomena in our world, from the vast to the infinitesimal.

The reader is taken on a roller-coaster ride through maths, physics, chemistry, biology and technology: from zero to infinity in maths and time; from subatomic particles to galaxies; from the speed and size of the Big Bang to the size and age of the universe; from the speed of light to the power of gravity; from the size of a White Dwarf to that of a Black Hole; from a strand of DNA to the evolution of life on Earth; from the Hubble telescope to nanotechnology; Combining words and pictures in the way that has made Icon's highly acclaimed Introducing books famous, Big Numbers will fire the imagination of any bright youngster.
