Count Like an Egyptian by David Reimer
Provides a fun, hands-on introduction that takes you step-by-step through addition, subtraction, multiplication, and more. Learn how fractions and decimals may have been calculated--they technically didn't exist in the land of the pharaohs. You'll be immersed in many facets of Egyptian life, from hieroglyphs and pyramid building to agriculture, religion, and even bread baking and beer brewing. You'll also learn some Babylonian computation--the precursor to our modern system--and see how ancient Egyptian mathematics compares to today's math.
