Math Lab for Kids proves that math is more than just numbers—the hands-on activities in this book make learning math fun! Curves and Fractals explores curve stitching, a way to approximate a curve using only straight lines; and fractals, which are patterns of shapes that look similar no matter whether you zoon in or out. No expensive supplies are required! Everything needed to complete the activities are included or can be found around the house. Math Lab for Kids: Curves and Fractals will give kids a great experience and a solid foundation in a subject that’s more important than ever.
