9781568813318: Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects

Mathematical craftwork has become extremely popular, and mathematicians and crafters alike are fascinated by the relationship between their crafts. The focus of this book, written for mathematicians, needleworkers, and teachers of mathematics, is on the relationship between mathematics and the fiber arts (including knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, and quilting). Each chapter starts with an overview of the mathematics and the needlework at a level understandable to both mathematicians and needleworkers, followed by more technical sections discussing the mathematics, how to introduce the mathematics in the classroom through needlework, and how to make the needlework project, including patterns and instructions.

From the Author:

We invite you to peruse the first book to contain both mathematics papers and fiber arts project instructions. Our fervent desire is that if you are mainly interested in the patterns, you will also try reading the Overview sections to see how the math feels. If you are mainly interested in the math, we hope that you will also try out the teaching ideas to hook your students further into mathematics. And, if your goal is to make your classroom a little more snazzy, we hope you will also try to make some of the projects yourself. The interplay between the sections of each chapter is amazing, and you will be surprised how much more fulfilling each part is when combined with the others.
