Patterns of the Universe: A Coloring Adventure in Math and Beauty
by Alex Bellos and Edmund Harriss
Math is at the heart of many natural wonders and has an abstract beauty all its own — in the silhouette of a snowflake, the spiral seeds of a sunflower, and the symmetry of the Sri Yantra mandala. From the 4-D hypercube that casts a starlike shadow to the infinite pattern of Penrose tiles that never perfectly repeats, these exquisite designs reveal their secrets as you fill them with color. Art becomes an act of discovery — no math knowledge is required!
In this event, we will discuss the book, how mathematical images are created, which ones are the best for coloring, and broader topics on math and art.
Students should read Patterns of the Universe ahead of the event.
