data

We live in an era of data and information. Right from deciding what to read, what to wear, which restaurant to go to, which city to visit, whom to vote for, we consider ourselves rational human beings who rely on data to make all our decisions. How much of this data is based on facts rather than opinions and/or perceptions? This review looks at two websites, Gapminder and Our World in Data, which attempt to provide reliable global statistics and promote a fact-based worldview.

Written by Mala Kumar and illustrated by Angie and Upesh, "Happy Maths - 2" looks at shapes and data. Children will get to read about how different shapes have different properties and get a better sense of what to make of all the information they gather.
