Make: Geometry (Make Community)
Friday, 20 August 2021

Subtitled "Learn by coding, 3D printing and building", in this book authors Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron take geometry back to its practical roots with 3D printed models and puzzles as well as demonstrations with household objects like flashlights and paper towel tubes. This is not a traditional geometry textbook, but rather builds up understanding of geometry concepts encountered primarily in middle school while also bringing in elements of concepts normally learned much later. Some of the models are counterintuitive, and figuring out how and why they work will both entertain and give insights.
