number sense, numeracy
Making Numbers Count: The Art and Science of Communicating Numbers (2022), by Chip Heath and Karla Starr, is a practical guide to developing number sense. Full of useful tips and tricks, the book ends on a philosophical note that invites us to contemplate why each of us is simultaneously good and bad with numbers. The writing style is enjoyable, especially for a reference book, and it could generate fruitful conversation in numeracy courses as well as writing courses across disciplines and professions.
