Publisher Synopsis

The most awesome book I've ever seen... I opened the book and was hooked. ... One thing I found wonderful about the book is that, while I've had quite a bit of math, I'm not a mathematician and Read more...

Each chapter covers a different mathematical paper and corresponding needlework project and includes mathematical explanations, needlework instructions, educational material, and specific projects to demonstrate the principles discussed." "Making Mathematics with Needlework will inspire mathematicians, mathematics educators, and crafters; every chapter has an overview as well as sections on mathematics and mathematics education and detailed instructions for completing the chapter's project. All readers will be able to understand the overview sections, as they include introductions to the various fiber arts as well as summaries of the mathematical content. While the mathematics sections are written for mathematicians, the authors have made a special effort to make their work accessible to lay readers by providing definitions of mathematical terms and many diagrams. The project sections are written for crafters, so that non-mathematician readers can have a tangible experience with mathematical concepts."--book jacket." ;
