What could I possibly get for a girl who loves numbers?

Recommended Posts

My girl is the girl who likes to listen to Pi when she can't sleep or when she's doing something with her hands. She's funny; repeating number sequences make her giggle.


This is funny and I love it about her but thinking about this and Christmas coming up, what kind of a gift could there be that appeals to this . . . quirk?


Any ideas?

The Teaching Company has a dvd set called The Joy of Mathematics; my number-loving kid really likes it (of course, who doesn't like Arthur Benjamin?).


I agree with everybody who recommended The Number Devil and the Martin Gardner books.

Because it is the Teaching Company, not the Thinking Company. Perhaps I shouldn't try to do either...
