They have a warning at the end of the book telling readers that they should listen to their teacher and use the proper name instead of the dream term. Robert, the young dreamer of The Number Devilhas a problem with mathematics.

Is a tale where departing of elemental concepts as natural numbers,prime numbers,powers and square roots introduce more advanced concepts as triangular numbers,Pascal triangle and his properties,permutations,combinations,properties of numerable sets of numbers,convergence of power series,divergence of armonic series and a introduction to topological results as the Euler characteristic of a graph and a poliedre and the Klein bottle ending with reflections of the idea of mathematical demostration and a brief decription of the greatest mathematicians.

The Number Devil gives mathematical concepts silly names, calling prime numbers “prima donna numbers” and exponents “hopping numbers,” which could be confusing, but there’s a guide at the end of the book which explains what everything is really called.

After the fourth night, Robert was not able to find the Number Devil until he dreamt of himself on a beach where the Number Devil taught him about triangular numbers.

Ini, lho, ada novel yang beneran bahas perkara angka2 dengan balutan cerita. Ini bukan dongeng, bukan pula memoar.

Robert discovers triangle number, Bonacci numbers, imaginary numbers, and irrational numbers. I was way behind in maths going into high school, and I have learnt so much from this book in months.

The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure by Hans Magnus Enzensberger

There are many properties explored throughout the book, like triangle numbers and Bonacci numbers, and the book teaches you about concepts these numbers can be applied to in real world situations, like the birth of rabbits, or the arrangement of desks.

The book has a plot, but I think it’s rather meant to get you thinking as a reader.

But if it gets kid’s reading about math then go go go. He couldn’t believe his eyes. As ever in The Number Devilno reference is made to the historical precedent, no explanation is given about the allusion.
