Description

We all look for patterns in our extraordinary universe: We are all born mathematicians.
 
Why is a rainbow curved? Why aren’t left-handers extinct? How is a sunflower like a synchronized swimmer? Why is e a magic number?
 
The answer to these questions and more is contained within one simple word: math. Because math is all about patterns, and our universe is extraordinarily patterned.
 
With enthusiasm, humor, and heart, Eddie Woo shows how card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups, killer butterflies, music, lightning, and so much more illuminate the spellbinding world of numbers that surrounds us.
