Shapes in Math, Science and Nature BSM057


The three books in the popular Shapes in Math, Science and Nature series, Squares, Triangles and Circles, are now available in one amazing compilation. The design has been refreshed, and the text by Catherine Sheldrick Ross has been lightly updated. What makes the compilation so unique and just plain interesting is how many topics it manages to cover for each of these three most basic shapes. For example, squares are explored not just in terms of what they are, how they are drawn and their geometry equations, which are all described in-depth, but also through ancient legends that feature squares, language expressions that use the word square (?back to square one?), illusions done with squares, city grids designed with squares and famous city centers that are squares (think Red Square in Moscow). There are also numerous ideas for hands-on-learning activities ---projects, puzzles, experiments --- that relate the text to everyday life.

   比如,关于正方形,书中就不仅较为深入地介绍了什么是正方形,如何画正方形及正方形的方程式,还讲述了关于正方形的传说、涉及“正方形”一词    的语言表达、与正方形有关的构想,以及用正方形设计的城市网格、著名的正方形的城市中心(如莫斯科红场)……
