Through a careful treatment of number theory and geometry, Number, Shape, & Symmetry: An Introduction to Number Theory, Geometry, and Group Theory helps readers understand serious mathematical ideas and proofs. Classroom-tested, the book draws on the authors’ successful work with undergraduate students at the University of Chicago, seventh to tenth grade mathematically talented students in the University of Chicago’s Young Scholars Program, and elementary public school teachers in the Seminars for Endorsement in Science and Mathematics Education (SESAME). The first half of the book focuses on number theory, beginning with the rules of arithmetic (axioms for the integers). The authors then present all the basic ideas and applications of divisibility, primes, and modular arithmetic. They also introduce the abstract notion of a group and include numerous examples. The final topics on number theory consist of rational numbers, real numbers, and ideas about infinity. Moving on to geometry, the text covers polygons and polyhedra, including the construction of regular polygons and regular polyhedra. It studies tessellation by looking at patterns in the plane, especially those made by regular polygons or sets of regular polygons. The text also determines the symmetry groups of these figures and patterns, demonstrating how groups arise in both geometry and number theory. The book is suitable for pre-service or in-service training for elementary school teachers, general education mathematics or math for liberal arts undergraduate-level courses, and enrichment activities for high school students or math clubs.

"When shapes have the same symmetries, they share a symmetry group. This coloring book explores these these symmetrical groups through patterned illustrations that can be colored in by the reader. Part educational resource, part relaxing entertainment--Beautiful Symmetry offers an accessible introduction to a group theory, a high-level mathematical concept, that will inform as well as delight"--

Focusing on the important ideas of geometry, this book shows how to investigate two- and three-dimensional shapes with very young students. It introduces methods to describe location and position, explores simple transformations and addresses visualisation, spatial reasoning and the building and drawing of constructions. Activities in each chapter pose questions that stimulate students to think more deeply about mathematical ideas. The CD-ROM features fourteen articles from NCTM publications. The supplemental CD-ROM also features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students and additional readings for teachers.

A fascinating and highly visual journey through the worlds of symmetry, with over 550 photos and some 300 drawings. From snowflakes to starfish, from dandelions to BMWs, from crystals to Coke machines, this is a thought-provoking and stimulating display of visual imagery, with simple, clear text. It will help you train your eye and mind to see new patterns and make new connections. It will provide a powerful unifying factor between seemingly disparate fields of human endeavor.

This book presents the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns, CAIP '95, held in Prague, Czech Republic in September 1995. The volume presents 61 full papers and 75 posters selected from a total of 262 submissions and thus gives a comprehensive view on the state-of-the-art in computer analysis of images and patterns, research, design, and advanced applications. The papers are organized in sections on invariants, segmentation and grouping, optical flow, model recovery and parameter estimation, low level vision, motion detection, structure and matching, active vision and shading, human face recognition, calibration, contour, and sessions on applications in diverse areas.
