Summary
  • Nature's repeating patterns, better known as fractals, are beautiful, universal, and explain much about how things grow. Fractals can also be quantified mathematically. Here is an elegant introduction to fractals through examples that can be seen in parks, rivers, and our very own backyards. Readers will be fascinated to learn that broccoli florets are fractals just like mountain ranges, river systems, and trees and will share in the wonder of math as it is reflected in the world around us. Perfect for any elementary school classroom or library, Mysterious Patterns is an exciting interdisciplinary introduction to repeating patterns.--
  • "Explains a simple number pattern and explores the ways it shows up in nature. Introduction revealing fractal patterns in nature and tells a story about the way our world grows and changes." -- jacket cover
