Rate this:
Penrose is back, and ready to usher young readers along as he encounters more amazing mathematical ideas in a sequence of adventure tales. At once demystifying and challenging, the book gives readers visuals to consider and things to do as they - along with Penrose - discover mathematical "rep-tiles"; meet x, the mathematical actor; find out when one and one do not equal two; help Sorry Snowflake find its symmetry; cross pi's path; learn that mathematical donuts are not for dunking; and more. Plus, Penrose tantalizes, teases, and perplexes with his puzzles and games around every corner. Like Pappas's other acclaimed mathematics books for children, these amusing and informative stories are designed to stimulate the imagination and motivate young minds to think about, grasp, and even marvel over concepts they might otherwise shy away from. A good bet for Pappas fans, Penrose fans, math buffs, teachers, students, and parents.
