Nature's repeating patterns, better known as fractals, are beautiful, universal, and explain much about how things grow. Fractals can also be quantified mathematically. Here is an elegant introduction to fractals through examples that can be seen in parks, rivers, and our very own backyards. Readers will be fascinated to learn that broccoli florets are fractals just like mountain ranges, river systems, and trees and will share in the wonder of math as it is reflected in the world around us. Perfect for any elementary school classroom or library, Mysterious Patterns is an exciting interdisciplinary introduction to repeating patterns.--… (mer)

This book informs how commonly fractal patterns are found in nature. For me, learning these concepts in school was very difficult, but this book makes it easier to understand. The visuals also help to reinforce what is learned. The blending of both math and science makes it a great addition to a classroom. ( )

This book shows how fractal patterns are very common in nature. It shows the reader how things like flowers, trees, broccoli, and other natural occurring things. It blends both science and mathematics together to teach readers one way how the two subjects are related. ( )

Mysterious patterns takes a sometimes difficult concept to understand and introduces it in a simple way. This book would be good to use with older students to explain what fractals are and how we see them in nature. This would also be a good way to talk about patterns with students, one of the crosscutting concepts in the NGSS standards.

Fractals were first studied in 1975 by Benoit Mandelbrot. They are shapes we find in nature. They are different from one another, but all have in common the fact of having small parts that look like the whole part. They are self-similar.
We can find them everywhere from tiny leaves veins to massive mountains ranges. We find them even in a lightning and inside our body.
Knowing about fractals helped us to study things that are to small, to big or too complex to study. Fractals help to find order in what looks messy at the first sight.Taking them as an example man has created systems that work in the same way, as Internet wiring and cellphone antennas.
This books explains in a clear way what fractals are, and how they are different from other repetitive patterns in nature and "perfect shapes" man created. It also includes an afterword by Michael Frame, math teacher at Yale University, who worked many years ago with Benoit Mandelbrot.

Age range:6 to 10 years old.
