Review:
Chapters such as “Tilt-A-Whirl Madness” and “The Fractal Pond Race” take readers on an amusing and enlightening amusement park adventure through advanced concepts such as mathematical chaos, fractals and topology. The language, problems and examples are all accessible and age appropriate, and the glossary, recommended reading and web site link enhance this lively learning experience.
