Sample games give a hint of what's to come and prime your mind for the challenges you'll face. Inside a hexagon, a continuous path connects 19 different nodes: find that trail, navigating a series of pointing arrows and visiting each node only once. On the Rebound features tricky little problems involving a pool ball on a table and the best way to shoot it. A Piece of Cake is no piece of cake: arrange the segments so that no two colored or numbered ones touch another of the same color or number. You'll think your brain really is twisted once you solve all of these.'--from publisher. Keywords: mathematics, math, recreation, recreational, brain teaser, logic, illusion, games, entertainment.

4 Geometry Civilized: History, Culture, and Technique Heilbron, J. L.
0965064795 Like New. 
Paperback. Large softcover 1998 Oxford University Press, NY. Very clean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight. Only a hint of shelfwear. Gift-giving condition. 309 pages; Index; Bibliography; black-and-white illustrations; 8pp of color plates. Language: English. 'Wonderfully illustrated...Heilbron covers Euclidean geometry, including behavior of circles, and plane trigonometry. All is explained from scratch, but not in the style of a textbook. Nor is it exactly a history of these topics, although it is erudite. The effect is to impart dignity to the subject and wisdom to its readers.... Heilbron's [book] is a deeply humanist work, which is a strange thing to say about a book with detailed geometry on every page....' --Nature. Keywords: mathematics, Euclid, Pythogoras, Pythagorean, angle, circle, line, triangle, theorem, proof.

SHAPE AND SIZE 4 (Nuffield Mathematics Project) , Nuffield Foundation
8 SHAPE AND SIZE 4 (Nuffield Mathematics Project)  Nuffield Foundation
Very Good.  
Paperback. Softcover 1st edition 1971 John Wiley, New York/ Nuffield Foundation. Foreword by Brian Young. 53pp. Very Good condition: Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear; light crease to tops of pages. Language: English. Hard-to-find title. This Teachers' Guide is part of a series generated by the Nuffield Mathematics Project to devise a contemporary approach for children from 5 to 13. From the publisher: 'This Guide introduces the idea of a vector, not as something purely abstract, but as a simple and effective aid to developing geometrical insight in young children. The concept of addition of vectors is built up very slowly, being abstracted (in the tradition of the Project) from a variety of practical experiences. The link is shown between vectors and translations. This leads to an extension of work on the three transformations of translation, reflection and rotation, and the Guide also includes an introduction to similarity. This is the last Guide in the [triangle symbol] series, and not every Primary School will wish to use it; indeed, many children will be 11 or 12 before they are ready for this work.' Handsomely designed book illustrated with figures and diagrams, as well as color photos of students' work and projects. Keywords: routes, bearings, maths, education, early, learning, teaching, school. ISBN 79 159841.
