The Adventures of Penrose the Mathematical Cat by Theoni Pappas


The Adventures of Penrose the Mathematical Cat by Theoni Pappas

Penrose, a cat with a knack for math, takes children on an adventurous tour of mathematical concepts from fractals to infinity. When the fractal dragon jumps off the computer screen and threatens to grow larger than the room itself, Penrose must find out if fractal patterns can work in reverse, getting smaller instead of larger.
