Crafts have been interacting with math, and math education, for centuries. A few examples (in no particular order) are:
- Mary Everest Boole (1832 - 1916) developed the curve stitching method that, among other features, gives a child the intuitive idea of a tangent line much before any formal learning,
- The symmetries of doilies,
- The Lorenz attractor crocheted by Hinke M. Osinga and Bernd Krauskopf,
- The hyperbolic crochet of Daima Taimina and the surfaces of Gabrielle Meyer.
- Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects edited by Sarah-Marie Belcastro and Carolyn Yackel
- Crafting Conundrums: Puzzles and Patterns for the Bead Crochet Artist by Ellie Baker and Susan Goldstine
