Book Description
This is a classic collection of mathematical recreations written by W.W. Rouse Ball. It is a comprehensive first source for information about magic squares, Platonic and Archimedian solids, "Knight's Tours" and other chessboard recreations, and just about any other variety of mathrelated puzzle you could name.
For nearly a century, this sparkling classic has provided stimulating hours of entertainment to the mathematically inclined. The problems posed here often involve fundamental mathematical methods and notions, but their chief appeal is their capacity to tease and delight. In these pages you will find scores of "recreations" to amuse you and to challenge your problemsolving faculties.
You'll even find problems which mathematical ingenuity can solve but the computer cannot. No knowledge of calculus or analytic geometry is necessary to enjoy these games and puzzles. With basic mathematical skills and the desire to meet a challenge you can put yourself to the test and win.
About the Authors W. W. Rouse Ball was a British mathematician, lawyer, and fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge. He was also a keen amateur magician.
