The Mathematical Genius in You, an innovative and practical book that exchanges ideas between author Edzai C. Zvobwo and readers focuses on achieving success in mathematics. The book is motivational and instructional as it takes readers through the steps on how to bring out their hidden mathematical genius. The principles required for maths success are easy to read and understand.
Adults can read the book on behalf of children to give support at home. You don’t need to be a mathematician but will gain insight into the problem solving methodology and ask valued questions that will channel learners to be logical solution finders. Teachers can use this book as a handy motivation to help students adopt a positive attitude towards maths.
“The book demystifies mathematics by emphasizing that society should encourage learners that mathematics can be done by all of us. Positive messages are disseminated as opposed to magnifying the difficulties of mathematics. The ultimate aim is for learners to acquire maths knowledge and skills, combine logical and intuitive reasoning, and communicate effectively on interpretations in context to the real world using appropriate mathematical language and notations” ends Swart.
Author Edzai C. Zvobwo says “The Mathematical Genius in You is a personal and candid dialogue on how to succeed in mathematics. The book educates and exposes the correct mindset, attitude and attributes necessary to excel in mathematics. At the formative level the book produces problem solvers and logical beings that are versatile in the workplace and life. The principles exposed in The Mathematical Genius in You can be applied to other learning areas, we hope that after reading this book you will have an understanding of where you are placed mathematically and then work to improve your status”.
About the Author
Edzai is a high achieving mathematics teacher, motivational speaker, business analyst/IT project manager and Game Mathematician.
He possesses a BSc Honours in Applied Mathematics, Diploma in Business Analysis and Certificate in Data Analysis.
He has a passion for mathematics; this is evidenced by his motivational works across schools in South Africa. He has participated in intervention programmes in the townships through workshops and camps assisting struggling learners.
Edzai has done a lot of work with SABC and their outreach programmes. A lot of MBA students from leading institutions of higher learning have benefited from his tutoring of research methods and statistics. His dream is to demystify mathematics and ensure that learners become good problem solvers.
Edzai is a firm believer of the theory that Africa can be liberated if her people are mathematically literate and apply the problem solving thinking methodology to find solutions to social, political and economic problems that have long hounded the “Mother-Continent”. Good problem solvers will eradicate poverty in Africa. To become a good problem solver, one needs to be mathematically trained to achieve this.
