[Excerpt from Preface] In issuing this volume of my Mathematical Puzzles, of which some have appeared in periodicals and others are given here for the first time, I must acknowledge the encouragement... More > that I have received from many unknown correspondents, at home and abroad, who have expressed a desire to have the problems in a collected form, with some of the solutions given at greater length than is possible in magazines and newspapers. Though I have included a few old puzzles that have interested the world for generations, where I felt that there was something new to be said about them, the problems are in the main original. It is true that some of these have become widely known through the press, and it is possible that the reader may be glad to know their source. - Henry Ernest Dudeney, 1917< Less

Here are some important things to remember when learning mathematics (known as math for short). Learning mathematics is like learning another language, so at first it will be hard but it will get...

Amusements In Mathematics: Illustrated by Henry Ernest Dudeney.
One of the largest puzzle collections — 430 brainteasers based on algebra, arithmetic, permutations, probability, plane figure... More > dissection, properties of numbers, etc. Intriguing, witty, paradoxical productions of one of the world's foremost creators of puzzles. Full solutions. More than 450 illustrations.
The life of Henry Ernest Dudeney is certainly one of the more interesting. Coming from a line that includes a shepherd that taught himself the elements of both astronomy and mathematics, it became clear that Henry was destined for great things.
By the time he turned 9, he began to publish the puzzles and problems that he was creating in his local newspaper. This is very impressive for a young man that never attended college or got anything more than a basic education. In 1893, he began to work with Sam Loyd on creating the mathematical puzzles that he remains famous for today.< Less

This book is created by Ms Lim Kai Ling (MA. Mathematics Education) and Ms Quinnie KC Ng (BSc in Mathematics) who are teachers each with at least 10 years of teaching experience at primary level.... More > Therefore, this book is very useful for teachers, tutors and parents and to be used in schools or at home where Mathematics teaching aids or manipulatives are readily available. Bring your Maths lessons to life with these activities or games, and make learning interesting, interactive and enjoyable for students.
Every activity or game comes with a 'Pre-requisite Knowledge' and the 'Specific Instructional Objective (SIO)'. Hence, practitioners are able to identify the mathematical concept underlying each activity.< Less

The book, Card Magic and My Mathematical Discoveries, opens a new chapter of mathematical discoveries using card magic as a pedestal. This innovative work explains how research on card magic led to a... More > new line of mind-blowing mathematical findings. These mathematical findings will captivate any reader interested in the following areas: programming and modeling, logical-mathematical intelligence, mathematical amusement, Riemann hypothesis, the world of numbers and mathematics of order and pattern. Moreover, this book is loaded with cutting edge puzzles, prime number riddles and card mathematical intelligence demonstrations to educate and entertain the readers and also to stimulate their interest in research. Interestingly, mathematical tutors can now use cards practically as a potent tool to teach mathematics, and also students can now use cards to play the games of intelligence.< Less
