Since understanding number is crucial to math, the topics covered in three books detail the origin of numbers and numeration. You may not know that 67 – 75% of Americans hate math so the story begins with Arithmetic Mouse, known as A. Mouse, deciding to take action because those who understand math and have good attitudes toward math, have more opportunities and career choices to take the world by the tail and make a difference. He decides to travel back in time to show humans the amazing development of mathematics. Arithmetic Mouse uses his Metamorphic powers and turns back the time on his clock ear and begins his quest. You are invited to read how A. Mouse discovers the development of counting, number symbols, and the decimal number system that humans use today and helps humans to understand how the little-known marvels from history can help them understand math and change their attitudes for the better.
