Eddie Woo has been teaching maths for more than ten years. In 2018, Eddie was named Australia's Local Hero and shortlisted as one of the top ten teachers in the world.

Australia’s favourite maths teacher is on a mission: to show us that maths is everywhere and for everyone WARNING: This is no ordinary maths book As a school student, Eddie Woo found little joy in mathematics. It seemed for the most part trying to memorise an arbitrary set of rules in a game he didn’t understand. Yet, on his journey to becoming a maths teacher Eddie realised: maths is all around us. Ever wondered why a rainbow is curved? Why left-handers aren’t extinct? How a sunflower is like a synchronised swimmer? The answers to these questions is contained with one simple word: MATHS. Because maths is all about patterns, and our universe is extraordinarily patterned.

Eddie’s passion and ability to communicate ideas, facts and theories with humour, both inside and outside of the classroom, has seen him amass a legion of fans, with over 340,000 people subscribing to his Youtube channel ‘Wootube’. His videos have been viewed more than 18 million times. Now Eddie shows how card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups, killer butterflies, music, lightning and so much more illuminate the spellbinding world of maths that surrounds us. He can’t wait to take you along for the journey!


'I never thought I'd read a maths book cover to cover, let alone sing its praises. Eddie Woo makes maths fun, accessible and relevant. Now we can all benefit from his extraordinary skill as a teacher.'
JENNY BROCKIE , journalist and TV host
