Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics
Write a Review. Anonymous More than 1 year ago The co-editor spells her name "sarah-marie belcastro".
Pferdina on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago Ten different projects, each with detailed mathematics mostly topology and graph theory, some symmetry and suggestions for using the project in the classroom. Although a lot of the math was too advanced for me, I enjoyed reading about it and learning something new about needlework.
The photographs and other illustrations are well done and the book overall is very beautiful. AnnieBM More than 1 year ago This is not really a how to for needlework but the patterns presented are quite pretty and would be well worth making just for those reasons. What these wonderful authors do is show the connection between the needlework patterns and methods to various forms of mathematics, especially topology geometry. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the mathematics and discussion of the kind of needlework, then moves on to the particular project.
The authors also include good references and some insights about using the projects in teaching. I love to do needlework and found learning the mathematics was wonderful and fun. I would have benefited from these examples and projects in learning mathematics the first time around.
Mathematics does apply to the more typically assumed "women's sphere of influence" and women can be great mathematicians with the right connections. Hats off to this wonderful mathematicians. I highly recommend this book especially for teachers, those drawn to needlework with any interest or curiosity in mathematics, and those interested in topology and related areas who need further examples for instance, beyond mechanics and engineering. Michelle, Thanks for listening. Have not heard of that stitch along.
