Visions of Numberland
For those who ponder the most intriguing questions in mathematics, the realm of numbers is not onlyvisual but also beautiful. What does a sphere look like in four dimensions? How can a knight on a chessboard visit every square? And can a five-sided tile cover an infinite floor?
‘Visions of Numberland’ unlocks the world’s greatest mathematical mysteries, with 60 patterns to colour in and 10 more that you can create from scratch. The friendly explanations next to each pattern unlock the secrets of an intellectual quest that has been underway for three thousand years – but no mathematical knowledge is required.
