The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book sets out to prove that maths has more in common with art than many might think, and that it can be truly beautiful; it achieves its aim. A series of clearly explained and attractively designed activities demonstrate how numbers and shapes can make fascinating patterns. Readers will learn how to make delicate snowflakes, using clever folding and cutting; how to make a three-dimensional fractal; and even to do some mathematical magic. It’s fascinating and will provide children with hours of entertainment, even those who wouldn’t normally claim to enjoy maths. A useful glossary includes words and phrases such as congruent, polyomino and tessellation, and it finishes with ideas for more smart art projects. ~ Andrea Reece
