Hart http://www.georgehart.com/sculpture/sculpture.html As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, Hart's work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. He uses a variety of media, including paper, wood, plastic, metal, and assemblages of common household objects.

BRANDENBURG'S LIST OF RECOMMENDED BOOKS ON MATH AND SCIENCE http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/brandenburg.new.html From others' recommendations and from his own reading as well, Guy Brandenburg has now compiled a list of over 140 math- and science-related books, mostly recent, for his geometry students to choose from, read, and do a report on. His new list is organized by topic: - astronomy - bad science - biography: mathematicians + scientists - biology/life science/evolution - chaos theory - codes and code-breaking - computer science/robotics/game theory - earth science/geology - history of mathematics - how-to: mathematics - how-to: science - mathematics - general - novels + short stories - number theory - physical chemistry - physics - probability + statistics - puzzles + problems - reference - mathematics - reliable, prolific authors on science + math - science - general Links to Amazon.com have been provided for your convenience. The list is also available for download as a MS Word document, text file or PDF file. Guy's original list is still available: http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/brandenburg.html \|/ LITERATURE AND MATHEMATICS http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/faq.lit.html From the Math Forum's Teacher2Teacher service, answers to a frequently asked question: How can I teach mathematics using literature?
