Say the words "Maths Books" and most kids (and quite a few adults, including me) will run screaming up the nearest tree to cower in fear of what such a book might contain.
So how can you balance the fascinating patterns and amazing numerical structures found in mathematics in a way to engage kids and adults who have a more creative and less logical brain?
In "This Is Not a Maths Book", Anna Weltman explores a rich collection of art activities designed to stimulate young minds and conquer that horrid fear that maths is all about dry equations and number crunching. It can also be about fabulous designs too!
|Designing cool things with Diabolic Parabolic|
|Even the humble circle can become an intricate and beautiful pattern|
"This Is Not a Maths Book" is utterly absorbing and fascinating stuff.
Charlotte's favourite bit: Using parabolic curves to make her own Eiffel Tower design
Daddy's favourite bit: A really fantastic and absorbing art activity book that's really different from the norm, and definitely recommended if kids are running out of things to do during the long summer hols
