I liked this book because it was adventurous. However,i did not like this book because of all the math it had in it. I am not a big fan of math. Aug 21, Andy rated it really liked it. What fun!

The high school setting makes this story instantly familiar for better or for worse ; the sci-fi adventure element plays to our universal fantasy of escaping high school also a double-edged sword.
Who among us would NOT want to discover a mysterious high-tech secret hidden in something as mundane as the hallway rest room? And how far would we — or our bored high-school selves — go to solve the mystery? His feel for the ease and looseness of teen vernacular is attuned which stems from his many years spent as a teacher, no doubt. Yeah, neither did I. This was a fun book of math, patterns, numbers, school, and adventure. The first half did feel a little pointless, but it was still fun. As a teacher, I really enjoyed the assignments - though I would like to understand what the Level writing assignments are.
The second half of the book had a lot of errors in the Kindle version. I can only assume they aren't there in the hard copy.

He discovers some strange electronic device in the boy's bathroom one day and gets together a group of 5 other friends because 6 is a nice circular number to crack the initial code and all those that follow.
I learned a few things about math that gave me new perspectives on things. I hope to remember them during the school year!

That's where the actual adventure begins. Some of it was quite funny, including the final note at the end. May 04, Robert Spillman rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent read. Beyond Infinity is a suspense involving high school students who eventually solve a mystery that one of them discovered in, of all places, the Boy's Restroom. Each step of the challenge in solving the mystery is accomplish with a mathematical solution.
The fun was that most were not simple challenges. They all rely on knowledge of important, but not well recognized, mathematical relationships. The magic is that the story draws the reader into learning about these relat This is an excellent read. The magic is that the story draws the reader into learning about these relationship with interest. Some, like the Fibonacci Sequence, are fairly well known and easy to understand, but the book takes one into the even deeper mysteries of number relationships. I'll admit to a certain fascination with numbers before I started, but I believe this book's approach makes them far more interesting to all and is a clever way of informing the reader of some of math's mysteries in an enjoyable guise of a mystery suspense.

The story is an excellent example of how math and writing can compliment each other. The ending was truly a surprise, and the thought with which I came away from the book was "I need to re-read this!
