In the past weeks I have worked with negative numbers with most of my classes. To my surprise, I have realized that most of them had absolutely no idea where we use negative numbers. Therefor, I have decided to create this inforgraphic. Let me know what you think:

Hope you enjoy these infographics because I have lots of fun making them. Let me know in the comment bellow what other things you would like to see. Have a great day. You can find me on Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, Twitter and Instagram. I will try to post there as often as possible.

Lots of love and don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy!

I"m looking in a mirror... Dark brown eyes are looking at me and are asking if I like the face in the mirror... Those eyes started to look up at a black curly hair and then down.... But those eyes cannot look into my heart and mind... They cannot find out what my feelings are or what I"m thinking...They cannot see the water inside me, the water that boils and makes me the way I am... The stubborn water that makes my life the way it is right now...View all posts by LThMath

Beyond Infinity: An Expedition to the Outer Limits of Mathematics by Eugenia ChengMy rating: 4 of 5 starsGenerally speaking I totally liked the book, I don"t have any specific things to complain about it. As the title suggests the book is about INFINITY, it starts from very basic concepts & aspects and gradually goes on to more complicated ones. I found it very interestingly split into a part 1 and a part 2. Moreover, the author uses easy to understand vocabulary and a friendly tone. I felt like I was speaking with a very excited friend, who is sharing their passion with me. I think this is a very powerful aspect and I totally recommend you read this. The author is well know for great comparisons between mathematical concepts and real life events. You get some lovely comparisons related to cooking (her favourite hobby) and travelling (which were some of my favourite ones... I am not a big fan of cooking). At this part, it might be that some comparisons are not really your type, but this is a very personal aspect. Anyway, there are some great explanations of complex mathematical concepts in here. I have a more in depth review on YouTube, if you want to check it out: all my reviews
