Beautiful Geometry

Beautiful Geometry Lowest new price: $17.38
Lowest used price: $19.31
List price: $27.95
Author: Eli Maor


If you've ever thought that mathematics and art don't mix, this stunning visual history of geometry will change your mind. As much a work of art as a book about mathematics, Beautiful Geometry presents more than sixty exquisite color plates illustrating a wide range of geometric patterns and theorems, accompanied by brief accounts of the fascinating history and people behind each. With artwork by Swiss artist Eugen Jost and text by acclaimed math historian Eli Maor, this unique celebration of geometry covers numerous subjects, from straightedge-and-compass constructions to intriguing configurations involving infinity. The result is a delightful and informative illustrated tour through the 2,500-year-old history of one of the most important and beautiful branches of mathematics.

Sacred Geometry (Wooden Books)

Sacred Geometry (Wooden Books) Lowest new price: $6.94
Lowest used price: $4.99
List price: $12.00
Author: Miranda Lundy

Geometry is one of a group of special sciences - Number, Music and Cosmology are the others - found identically in nearly every culture on earth. In this small volume, Miranda Lundy presents a unique introduction to this most ancient and timeless of universal sciences.

Sacred Geometry demonstrates what happens to space in two dimensions - a subject last flowering in the art, science and architecture of the Renaissance and seen in the designs of Stonehenge, mosque decorations and church windows. With exquisite hand-drawn images throughout showing the relationship between shapes, the patterns of coin circles, and the definition of the golden section, it will forever alter the way in which you look at a triangle, hexagon, arch, or spiral.

The Fractal Geometry of Nature

The Fractal Geometry of Nature Lowest new price: $35.83
Lowest used price: $18.34
List price: $60.00
Author: Benoit B. Mandelbrot
Brand: Baker and Taylor

Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightening does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature's shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes.

Now that the field has expanded greatly with many active researchers, Mandelbrot presents the definitive overview of the origins of his ideas and their new applications. The Fractal Geometry of Nature is based on his highly acclaimed earlier work, but has much broader and deeper coverage and more extensive illustrations.

Imagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangle--you have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mind-bending geometric figure with an infinitely large perimeter, yet with a finite area. This is an example of the kind of mathematical puzzles that this book addresses.

The Fractal Geometry of Nature is a mathematics text. But buried in the deltas and lambdas and integrals, even a layperson can pick out and appreciate Mandelbrot's point: that somewhere in mathematics, there is an explanation for nature. It is not a coincidence that fractal math is so good at generating images of cliffs and shorelines and capillary beds.

Common Core Math Workouts, Grade 8 Lowest new price: $5.24
Lowest used price: $5.56
List price: $9.99
Author: Karice Mace
Brand: Carson-Dellosa

Each page in Common Core Math Workouts for grade 8 contains two “workouts”--one for skills practice and one for applying those skills to solve a problem. These workouts make great warm-up or assessment exercises. They can be used to set the stage and teach the content covered by the standards. They can also be used to assess what students have learned after the content has been taught. Content is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and includes Geometry, Ratio and Proportional Relationships, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, and Statistics and Probability. The workbooks in the Common Core Math Workouts series are designed to help teachers and parents meet the challenges set forth by the Common Core State Standards. They are filled with skills practice and problem-solving practice exercises that correspond to each standard. With a little time each day, your students will become better problem solvers and will acquire the skills they need to meet the mathematical expectations for their grade level.

The new edition also presents further improvements and surprises, among them a new proof for "Hilbert's Third Problem".

From the Reviews:

"... Inside [this book] is indeed a glimpse of mathematical heaven, where clever insights and beautiful ideas combine in astonishing and glorious ways. There is vast wealth within its pages, one gem after another. ..., but many [proofs] are new and brilliant proofs of classical results. ...Aigner and Ziegler... write: "... all we offer is the examples that we have selected, hoping that our readers will share our enthusiasm about brilliant ideas, clever insights and wonderful observations." I do. ... " AMS Notices 1999

"... the level is close to elementary ... the proofs are brilliant. ..." LMS Newsletter 1999

Sacred Geometry: Philosophy & Practice (Art and Imagination)

Sacred Geometry: Philosophy & Practice (Art and Imagination) Lowest new price: $10.52
Lowest used price: $7.01
List price: $19.95
Author: Robert Lawlor

An introduction to the geometry which, as modern science now confirms, underlies the structure of the universe.

The thinkers of ancient Egypt, Greece and India recognized that numbers governed much of what they saw in their world and hence provided an approach to its divine creator. Robert Lawlor sets out the system that determines the dimension and the form of both man-made and natural structures, from Gothic cathedrals to flowers, from music to the human body. By also involving the reader in practical experiments, he leads with ease from simple principles to a grasp of the logarithmic spiral, the Golden Proportion, the squaring of the circle and other ubiquitous ratios and proportions.

Art and Imagination: These large-format, gloriously-illustrated paperbacks cover Eastern and Western religion and philosophy, including myth and magic, alchemy and astrology. The distinguished authors bring a wealth of knowledge, visionary thinking and accessible writing to each intriguing subject. 202 illustrations and diagrams, 56 in two colors
