From the editors of the popular Making Mathematics with Needlework, this book presents projects that highlight the relationship between types of needlework and mathematics. Chapters start with accessible overviews presenting the interplay between mathematical concepts and craft expressions. Following sections explain the mathematics in more detail, and provide suggestions for classroom activities. Each chapter ends with specific crafting instructions. Types of needlework included are knitting, crochet, needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, temari balls, beading, tatting, and string art. Instructions are written as ordinary patterns, so the formatting and language will be familiar to crafters.

The beauty of the visual patterns of mathematics is highlighted in this engaging book. The mathematics is carefully laid out, but following every detail of the mathematics is not necessary to create the patterns of the crafts projects presented. ... Excellent photographs throughout amply illustrate the use of mathematics ... I highly recommend this book to teachers looking for beautiful projects for their students or to anyone who loves or is curious about circles, spirals, helixes, cross-caps, fractals, diaper patterns, symmetry groups, squaring the rectangle, and tiling spheres or the plane. -Marcia Weller Weinhold, Mathematics Teacher, November 2012 There is something in this book for everyone from crafters to mathematicians to educators and students. ... This book has a lot to offer for mathematicians and non-mathematicians, presented in a beautifully illustrated and well-organized volume. -L'Enseignement Mathematique (2) 57, 2011 If Crafting by Concepts does nothing else, it should help non-math-geek knitters to understand there's nothing to fear in the typical math of a knitting pattern. It also illustrates that a little mystery can be a lot of fun. For knitters who are into mathematical knitting, this book offers a lot of interesting things to think about. ... Crafty math teachers will enjoy the teaching suggestions that will allow them to use these projects and concepts in the classroom, hopefully bringing up the next generation of crafty mathematicians. And these projects take geek craft to a whole new level, which is pretty cool. -Sarah E. White, About.com Knitting I stumbled over this book and simply had to buy it ... The authors' interest is in linking mathematics and craft ... -Cally Booker, chairman of the Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, on her blog, August 2011 The editors have collected nine projects from various authors and have presented them attractively in this beautiful book. ... The book is wide-ranging, covering many mathematical topics and many craft ideas. ... This book would be a great present for a mathematician interested in craft or a craft enthusiast open to thinking about mathematics. -Vicky Neale, Plus magazine, August 2011 Fiberarts and mathematics in a marvelous union to not just create but to understand applications in Temari, Quilting, Knitting and ever cross stitch. -Lacis Tools & Materials

5.0 von 5 Sternen Crafting by Concepts 7. Juni 2011
Von Herbert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Crafting by Concepts was purchased as a gift for my wife. One of her hobbies is knitting & crocheting. Upon receiving this book, she has thanked me several times for the gift. She knits a lot of different items and likes to experiment with different techniques and this book appears to have broaden that window of creativity. She likes math and enjoys its applications.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Geometry expressed in yarn, pretty cool and pretty 28. Dezember 2011
Von Charles Ashbacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Geometric shapes can appear in many venues, one of the most interesting is when they are created by needles, thread and yarn being subjected to the careful manipulations of the talented human hand. In this book, some of basic geometric shapes are created via needlework. The mathematics used to explain and design the shapes is described, but whether you understand them or not, you cannot help but be impressed by the finished products.
Calculus of surfaces, fractals, elementary number theory, group theory, platonic solids and continued fractions are some of the mathematical topics used to explain the creations. Colorful caps, balls, cross-stitch patterns, and quilts are the useful and decorative items that are the final result of the needlework.
You don't have to understand a great deal of mathematics in order to appreciate the talent that goes into making these items. If you know how to do the required stitches, then you will be able to follow the patterns used to create them. Applied mathematics has many forms, I am sure even the legendary G. H. Hardy would have approved of what was done here.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect for my geeky girl crafter 28. Mai 2013
Von C. Eimer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I got this book and Making Mathematics with Needlework for my daughter's college graduation gift. She adores both mathematics and crafting and squealed with joy when she opened the box. Even if she never actually does any of the projects in the book, she is translating the concepts into what she *does* craft: knitted lace. I'd recommend this book for people who love crafts and mathematics and who have the background in reading technical papers.
