The Boy Who Dreamed of Infinity: A Tale of the Genius Ramanujan

Article number: 978670
Availability: In stock (10)

In 1887 in India, a boy named Ramanujan is born with a passion for numbers.  He sees numbers in the squares of light pricking his thatched roof and in the beasts dancing on the temple tower.  He writes mathematics with his finger in the sand, across the pages of his notebooks, and with chalk on the temple floor.  “What is small?” he wonders.  “What is big?”  Head in the clouds, Ramanujan struggles in school — but his mother knows that her son and his ideas have a purpose.  As he grows up, Ramanujan reinvents much of modern mathematics, but where in the world could he find someone to understand what he has conceived?
