So, how does this book compare to Making Mathematics with Needlework? Crafting by Concepts has chapters (broken down into four sections each), and also has minis with only two sections (mathematical description and project instructions). The four sections in each chapter are an overview for everyone, a mathematics section for both enthusiasts and professionals, a teaching ideas section, and project instructions. Some of the chapters have multiple projects.
