Book 2 covers arithmetic at the elementary school level. Counting and place value are covered up through thousands, millions, and billions. Arithmetic with fractions and multi-digit numbers is broken down into small steps and covered in great detail. Place value and regrouping is thoroughly investigated as a way to understand this arithmetic, rather than memorizing meaningless mechanics. In addition to the arithmetic, this book plays with numbers with chapters on number sense, number theory, number bases, and the history of numbers.
