The concept of tensegrity, in which tensile and compressive elements are carefully balanced to archive structural integrity, permits the fabrication of curious structures, their ridged elements not touching, but suspended as if by magic, interlaced by a network of tendons.
The orderliness and regularities of polyhedra provoke intuitive feelings that they must be significant; however, systematic studies of these three - dimensional figures have been consigned to mathematical treatise. By contrast, Mr Pugh describes polyhedra in visual terms, as a series of interrelated shapes. He...
Hundreds of diagrams help paperfolders at all levels create over 120 models ranging from a traditional sailboat, cicada, flapping bird, and jumping frog to such less common subjects as a Japanese lady, gargoyle, octopus, and a Moor at prayer.

Jacobs' highly successful, distinctive text was revised on the basis of users' comments and ten years of classroom experience - perfecting an already acclaimed approach to teaching geometry.
This pamphlet approaches matrix algebra from the viewpoint of a pupil who has already covered a certain amount of graphical work.
This pamphlet is focused on the relative sizes of numbers, and simple expressions which involve numbers. The reader can investigate some of the properties by using accurate drawings on graph paper, and also consider what algebraic processes have been achieved as a result of their drawings.
Have you got a memory like a sieve? You'll find her the rules, formulae and ways of working out the answers you've long forgotten. You can look up the basic process of which you are unsure: e.g. fractions, decimals, equations - and the way to the answer is clearly shown. No reasons or whats why and whereabouts...
College-level mathematics book from 1960.
