Book Description
A Magic Square consists of a series of numbers so arranged in a square that the sum of each row and column and of both the corner diagonals shall be the same amount which may be termed the summation.
In "Magic Squares and Cubes" W.S. Andrews writes "The study of magic squares probably dates back to prehistoric times. Examples have been found in Chinese literature written about AD 1125 which were evidently copied from still older documents. It is recorded that as early as the ninth century magic squares were used by Arabian astrologers in their calculations of horoscopes, etc. Hence, the probable origin of the term magic, which has survived to the present day."
This book cover topics such as magic squares, magic cubes, the Franklin squares, magics and Pythagorean numbers, the theory of reversions, magic circles, spheres, and stars, and magic octahedroids, among other things.
This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923.

The Manual of Mathematical Magic (Peter McOwan, et al.)
This book will show you how to perform some magical miracles to impress and entertain your friends. But it will also explain the mathematics behind the tricks and how that same mathematics is used in the real world.

A=B, by Marko Petkovsek, Herbert S. Wilf, et al
This book is of interest to mathematicians and computer scientists working in finite mathematics and combinatorics. It presents a breakthrough method for analyzing complex summations.

StreetFighting Math: Guessing & Opportunistic Problem Solving
This engaging book is an antidote to the rigor mortis brought on by too much mathematical rigor, teaching us how to guess answers without needing a proof or an exact calculation.

Fashion Figures: How Missy the Mathlete Made the Cut
This book highlights the societal and internal pressures preteen and earlyteen girls often face when they excel in these subjects, and it shows strategies for overcoming barriers to being themselves and doing what they love while still fitting in socially.

Mathematical Illustrations: A Manual of Geometry and PostScript
It combines a completely selfcontained stepbystep introduction to the graphics programming language PostScript with an analysis of the requirements of good mathematical illustrations, for anyone with basic knowledge of coordinate geometry.

Mathematical Omnibus: Thirty Lectures on Classic Mathematics
This is an enjoyable book with suggested uses ranging from a text for a undergraduate Honors Mathematics Seminar to a coffee table book. The common thread in the selected subjects is their illustration of the unity and beauty of mathematics.
