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 Download a fun Activity Pack with lots of maths puzzles here!
There’s a lot more to science than lab coats, test tubes and text books as this stimulating interactive activity book demonstrates. All you need is a pen or pencil to try out the more than 30 different projects contained within its bright pages and children will learn about all sorts of things, from plant reproduction to scientific phenomena such as light and mirrors. There are lots of really fascinating brain-bending puzzles to attempt too – science doesn’t get much cooler! ~ Andrea Reece
