Growing up in Hungary during WWI, Erdos tried school but chafed at the rules and convinced his mother that he should study at home. He was fascinated by numbers from an early age, and by the time he was 20, he was known as The Magician from Budapest. Unable to do common tasks such as cooking, laundry, or driving, he spent his adult life flying around the world, staying with other mathematicians, and working collaboratively on challenging math problems.… (mais)

This is a great book for kids and especially something a math educator could share in a class of 4th-6th graders. The book is based on a true story of male Hungarian named Paul Erdos who is hinted to have Asperger. It talks about how when Paul was a young boy he did not fit in with the others because he was a genius. But through the book, it talks about how Paul was able to overcome his insecurities. The book is full of mathematical concepts and it is easy to understand! I definitely recommend this book! ( )

The Boy Who Loved Math tells the story of a famous mathematician named Paul Erdos. As a child, Paul loved the concept of infinity and often explored how mathematics interacted with everyday life. Paul had trouble following the rules in school, so his mother decided to let him stay home and complete his studies. After high school, Paul decided to travel the world to do math with his colleagues, which led to the discovery and evolution of number theory. The story of Paul Erdos’s life is a great inspiration for children who may struggle with rules and learn in unconventional ways. Heiligman does a fantastic job of integrating math concepts in a fun and intriguing way! ( )

This book is great for lessons involving prime numbers or counting numbers. This book is also good because it shows that someone is famous and loved was also strange. It might be interesting to students to see someone who was famous but not normal. ( )

This book follows the life of a boy in Hungary named Paul Erdos who loves numbers and their theories but hates school. This book shows the struggles he goes through and his achievements becoming a mathematician who also happens to have Autism. This book would be great to use as a read aloud in a math class or as a research project on different influential mathematicians.

This book is about a boy in Hungary that loves math, but his other subjects in school are terrible. The book goes through his journey of becoming a mathematician. Another great aspect that is brought into the book is that Paul Erdos has a form of Autism. The book shows great recognition that no matter some obstacles don't have to be obstacles. ( )

Everyone else talked and ate, but Paul stared at his bread.  He stared at his butter.  He didn't know how to butter his bread.

Finally he took his knife, put some butter on it, and spread it on his bread.  Phew.  He did it!  "It wasn't so hard," he said.  ( Erdős was about 20)
Uncle Paul was generous with his brain -- and his money, too.  Whatever money he had he gave away.  He gave money to poor people and he offered prize money for unsolved math problems.
All over the world mathmaticians still talk about and love Uncle Paul.  Even people who never met him.  They talk about their "Erdős number."  If you did math with Paul you get an Erdős number of 1.  If you worked with someone who worked with Paul, your Erdős number is 2.  People are so proud of their Erdős number.  (pp.31-32)
