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

This is Not Another Maths Book by Anna Weltman

Amazing patterns are revealed as you follow the simple activity instructions. Kids learn incredible maths facts as they complete the beautiful designs. From perfect paper polygons and topological transformation flip books, to pizza cutting puzzles and loop-de-loop number spirals, discover the art in maths, and the maths in art. Left-brain and right-brain come together to create fantastic maths art!

But remember, this is NOT another maths book... or is it?
