Mathematical Recreations

The Master Book Of Mathematical Recreations [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mathematical Recreations by Maurice Kraitchik Book Resume:

Ranging from ancient Greek and Roman problems to the most modern applications of special mathematical techniques for amusement, this popular volume contains material to delight both beginners and advanced mathematicians. Its 250 lively puzzles, problems, situations, and demonstrations of recreational mathematics feature full solutions and analyses. Fifty-seven highly unusual historic problems are derived from ancient Greek, medieval European, Arabic, and Hindu sources. Other problems are based on "mathematics without numbers," geometry, topology, the calendar, arithmetic, and the mathematics of chess moves. Fifty pages comprise numerical pastimes built out of figurate numbers, Mersenne numbers, Fermat numbers, cyclic numbers, automorphic numbers, and prime numbers; probability problems are also fully analyzed. More than forty pages are devoted to magic squares, and the concluding portion of the book presents more than twenty-five new positional and permutational games of permanent value. A discussion of fairy chess is followed by rules and procedural information on latruncles, go, reversi, jinx, ruma, lasca, tricolor, four-story towers, tetrachrome, and other games. More than a collection of wonderful puzzles, this volume offers a thorough, rigorous, and entertaining sampler of recreational mathematics, highlighted by numerous insights into specialized fields.

Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles

The Master Book Of Mathematical Recreations [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles by Martin Gardner Book Resume:

Playing with mathematical riddles can be an intriguing and fun-filled pastime — as popular science writer Martin Gardner proves in this entertaining collection. Puzzlists need only an elementary knowledge of math and a will to resist looking up the answer before trying to solve a problem. Written in a light and witty style, Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles is a mixture of old and new riddles, grouped into sections that cover a variety of mathematical topics: money, speed, plane and solid geometry, probability, topology, tricky puzzles, and more. The probability section, for example, points out that everything we do, everything that happens around us, obeys the laws of probability; geometry puzzles test our ability to think pictorially and often, in more than one dimension; while topology, among the "youngest and rowdiest branches of modern geometry," offers a glimpse into a strange dimension where properties remain unchanged, no matter how a figure is twisted, stretched, or compressed. Clear and concise comments at the beginning of each section explain the nature and importance of the math needed to solve each puzzle. A carefully explained solution follows each problem. In many cases, all that is needed to solve a puzzle is the ability to think logically and clearly, to be "on the alert for surprising, off-beat angles...that strange hidden factor that everyone else had overlooked." Fully illustrated, this engaging collection will appeal to parents and children, amateur mathematicians, scientists, and students alike, and may, as the author writes, make the reader "want to study the subject in earnest" and explains "some of the inviting paths that wind away from the problems into lusher areas of the mathematical jungle." 65 black-and-white illustrations.

The Puzzle Universe

The Master Book Of Mathematical Recreations [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Puzzle Universe by Ivan Moscovich Book Resume:

A renowned puzzle master and game inventor presents 315 new and traditional puzzles. Longlisted, 2016 School Library Association Information Book Award 12+ "A great read for anyone interested in puzzles or mathematics." --Publishers Weekly "Gift Guide Selection 2015. Moscovich, a celebrated puzzle inventor, makes a compelling case for puzzle solving as a means of developing creativity and even intelligence." --American Scientist "The Puzzle Universe is a quixotic, informative and enlightening encyclopedia of recreational mathematics. It should prove to be an inspiration to mathematical idlers, and a rich resource for learners and teachers who wish to be attuned to the playful and creative side of mathematics." --Mathrecreation Blog The Puzzle Universe is intended for general readers and devoted puzzlers but it has also found its way into school libraries and curricula. It is about the latent beauty of mathematics, its history and the puzzles that have emerged from the science of numbers. It is full of challenging historical facts, thinking puzzles, paradoxes, illusions and problem solving. A historical and pedagogical dimension sets The Puzzle Universe apart. The 315 puzzles are described in extended captions that explain in easy terms the story of the puzzles' origins and attempts to solve them, the value of puzzles to education, and the development of the mathematical sciences in light of recent research and unmet challenges. There are many profiles of great mathematicians. The puzzles appear in a dynamic layout for a visual experience that is the author's trademark. There are ten chapters complete with answers. Icons rate the challenge and indicate the tools needed (pencil, scissors, ruler and, of course, your thinking cap). With this book, Ivan Moscovich invites readers to join him in the puzzle universe, an edifying environment of creative discovery, problem solving and fun.

Algorithmic Puzzles

The Master Book Of Mathematical Recreations [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Algorithmic Puzzles by Anany Levitin,Maria Levitin Book Resume:

While many think of algorithms as specific to computer science, at its core algorithmic thinking is defined by the use of analytical logic to solve problems. This logic extends far beyond the realm of computer science and into the wide and entertaining world of puzzles. In Algorithmic Puzzles, Anany and Maria Levitin use many classic brainteasers as well as newer examples from job interviews with major corporations to show readers how to apply analytical thinking to solve puzzles requiring well-defined procedures. The book's unique collection of puzzles is supplemented with carefully developed tutorials on algorithm design strategies and analysis techniques intended to walk the reader step-by-step through the various approaches to algorithmic problem solving. Mastery of these strategies--exhaustive search, backtracking, and divide-and-conquer, among others--will aid the reader in solving not only the puzzles contained in this book, but also others encountered in interviews, puzzle collections, and throughout everyday life. Each of the 150 puzzles contains hints and solutions, along with commentary on the puzzle's origins and solution methods. The only book of its kind, Algorithmic Puzzles houses puzzles for all skill levels. Readers with only middle school mathematics will develop their algorithmic problem-solving skills through puzzles at the elementary level, while seasoned puzzle solvers will enjoy the challenge of thinking through more difficult puzzles.
