What Makes Colin M. Drysdale Unique?Colin M. Drysdale has integrated mathematics instruction into his zombie books. This unique approach makes Drysdale stand out.
"When maths becomes the key for surviving in a world where the dead hunt the living, it’s so much more fun. This is the premise behind The Little Book of Zombie Mathematics: make maths fun by adding the undead. After all, everything’s better with zombies."Consider this scenario...
Your machine gun can fire 57 bullets a minute. There are 200 zombies staggering towards you and they’ll reach you in three and a half minutes. Do you have the fire power to kill them all before they get to you?"The book offers 25 different mathematics problems, all based on the zombie apocalypse. Most of the problems feature the reader as an endangered survivor. Each problem also offers a carefully explained solution and an explanation of common wrong answers. Drysdale has a complete list of the math problems also posted on his website.
