App Review: Incredible Numbers by Professor Ian Stewart

Some students consider mathematics as a difficult subject, hard to grasp in the first place then retaining that new knowledge. Incredible Numbers by Professor Ian Stewart breaks down these stereotypes by offering a completely interactive way of approaching maths.

There are loads of chapters for your pupils (and you!) to discover, from Infinity to Pi, Factorials to polygons. The Music chapter is particularly exciting, showing a real life application as patterns in harmonies are discovered.

The app is designed beautifully, showing a really wonderful side to the subject that just can’t be achieved by textbooks. There are even puzzles designed by Ian Stewart, with 23 articles embedded with 71 interactive demonstrations.
