Synopsis

Sliceforms Mathematical Models from Paper Sections by John Sharp

Sliceform modelling is a technique which lies happily on the border between art and mathematics. The models are made from intersecting sets of parallel planes which which slot together in a clever way to generate intersecting three-dimensional surfaces. In the fully-open position the planes are at right angles and the surfaces correctly defined, but all the models fold flat in two different ways, making them convenient to store until they are needed next time. When popped-up, the play of light and shade on the planes creates objects of great beauty. This book includes a varied selection of sliceform models to cut out and make, and also a full explanation of how they were produced.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
