Pupils are also encouraged to assess their own progress through the use of Personal Learning Plans. The section entitled Special small numbers highlights some very interesting snippets, in amongst other things theoretical physics, probability and geometry. If you want to impress at a party then Chapter 23 in this section will do the trick — provided they are not mathematicians.

    By the way, did you know that there was a number larger than infinity? It's also less than a year since the statistician Adrian Smith took up his post as director general for science at the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills. The done thing was to publish your papers in journals and let the maths community read them in libraries. You have to simplify. Following these discussions steps are taken to address any areas of challenge encountered by the pupils.

Pupils are also encouraged to assess their own progress through the use of Personal Learning Plans. But hasn't Stewart had any stick from the maths community for his popular books, and more than 80 TV and radio appearances? By the age of 37, Stewart was combining lecturing with writing maths comic books.

He married after one-seventh more. What is so special about the number 23? In his early teens, Stewart stored in notebooks the mathematical conundrums he came across in Scientific American and elsewhere.

Stewart's accolade today Frazee & Whistons commercial arithmetic book eight months after mathematician Marcus du Sautoy Frazee & Whistons commercial arithmetic book chosen to succeed Richard Dawkins as chair in the Simonyi Professorship for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University.

And he'd pick up a skill for which 50 years later he'd be rewarded: how to entertainingly communicate maths to the public. The done thing was to publish your papers in journals and let the maths community read them in libraries. Indeed, the numbers are perhaps a convenient way of introducing a wide variety of intriguing mathematical ideas and approaches in areas such as geometry, set theory, chaos, string theory, music, art and infinity.

It will be the first medal specifically given to a mathematician in the UK for promoting maths to the public. Last month, he posted a maths puzzle on Twitter: "Diophantus's childhood lasted one-sixth of his life," the puzzle reads. Stewart has collaborated with Pratchett and reproductive biologist Jack Cohen to produce three books on the science of Discworld.

His son was born five years later. When the first batch of ran out, another were hastily printed from a duplicator in a university kitchen at 1am. Pratchett's novels are set in Discworld, a universe 10,miles long that is the shape of a disc and rests on the backs of four giant elephants supported by a giant turtle.

Other equally fascinating irrational numbers considered by Stewart are the golden number important in numerology and plant geometrythe exponential this number arises when the rate of increase or decrease in, for example, the human population or radioactivity is discussed and fractals infinitely repeating patterns at all scales of which the snowflake curve is perhaps the most recognisable.

Of course, not everyone is lucky enough to be in a field that can be popularised, or can do public engagement.

Following these discussions steps are taken to address any areas of challenge encountered by the pupils.

Hawking is rumoured to have been warned that for every equation in his book A Brief History of Time, the readership would be halved. Of course, this is not to say that the numbers themselves are obscured only to be remarked upon in such a way as to merely facilitate discussion of a particular theory; they are in their own right treated with appropriate Frazee & Whistons commercial arithmetic book.

Recognition of Stewart's gift Frazee & Whistons commercial arithmetic book communicating "the scope, power and sheer joy" of being a mathematician is long overdue, says David Abrahams, president of the Institute of Mathematics.

Of course, every number is special, but there are certain numbers that tend to ignite a particular curiosity within us.
