Product Description:

Combine art with math concepts, and what do you get Not a Math Book!! Using the step-by-step instructions on the pages of this activity book, users will learn to draw interesting configurations and patterns based on mathematical formulas. You will need to supply a protractor or angle pieces, compass, tape, graph paper, plain paper, tracing paper, and scissors for use with the consumable pages. Learn about patterns, symmetry, and shape, create perfect circles and triangles, and design your own mandalas and tessellations. The pages of the book are in color and printed on heavier paper so they won't rip while you are working on your math art project. Additional ideas for projects are found in the back of the book, along with a glossary and 9 pages of special graph paper. Draw the Sierpinski Triangle, make 3D drawings, and learn about the Golden Spiral as you draw your way to a better understanding of math. 86 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

I have a non-math girl (although she;s tearing through fractions!) and thought this would be a good, fun, new way to look at math.
