9780141975863: Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension

This is the complete guide to exploring the fascinating world of maths you were never told about at school. Stand-up comedian and mathematician Matt Parker uses bizarre Klein Bottles, unimaginably small pizza slices, knots no one can untie and computers built from dominoes to reveal some of the most exotic and fascinating ideas in mathematics. Starting with simple numbers and algebra, this book goes on to deal with inconceivably big numbers in more dimensions than you ever knew existed. And always with something for you to make or do along the way.

Review:

Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd - clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty (Adam Rutherford, author of CREATION)

Essential reading ( Observer)

Matt Parker is a lovely, funny, big, dork (Ben Goldacre)

Shows off maths at its most playful and multifarious, ranging from classics like knot theory and ruler-and-compass constructions to more whimsical topics like the topology of beer logos and error-correcting scarves (Jordan Ellenberg, author of HOW NOT TO BE WRONG)

This is the best book on recreational mathematics since Martin Gardner's My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles (Harold D. Shane, Mathematics Emeritus, Baruch Coll., CUNY Library Journal)

About the Author:

Originally a maths teacher from Australia, Matt Parker now lives in Guildford in a house full of almost every retro video-game console ever made. He is fluent in binary and could write your name in a sequence of 0s and 1s in seconds.When he's not working as the Public Engagement in Mathematics Fellow at Queen Mary University of London, he'll be doing stand-up or converting photographs into Excel spreadsheets.
