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
Summary
Introduces readers to naturally repeating fractals while discussing what makes them unique, explaining how to move beyond familiar shapes in nature to recognize more intricate patterns
