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.

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.

Magic Squares and Cubes (William Symes Andrews)
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.

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.
