The Universe could be a Mystery,
But it really is No Secret

Michael Schneider leads us on a superb, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical ideas made seen in plant life, shells, crystals, crops, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of folks sayings and fairy stories, fantasy and faith, artwork and structure. it is a new view of arithmetic, now not the single we realized in class yet a accomplished consultant to the styles that recur throughout the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's advisor to developing, the Universe exhibits you:

  • Why cans, pizza, and manhole covers are round.

  • Why one and were not thought of numbers by way of the traditional Greeks.

  • Why squares appear so frequently in goddess paintings and board games.

  • What estate makes the spiral the main frequent form in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies.

  • How the human physique stocks the layout of a bean plant and the sun process.

  • How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar.

  • How our ten palms carry the secrets and techniques of either a lobster and a cathedral.

  • And even more.
