|Nick's Mathematical Puzzles|
Over 60 puzzles selected for the deceptive simplicity of their statement, or the elegance of their solution. They range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. All require a certain ingenuity, but usually only pre-college math.
This page contains applets that calculate the partions of n and discusses some interesting patterns that can be found.
|Probability by Surprise|
A nice collection of probability applets (including the Birthday problem, Banach's matchbox, and Traffic Jams); they may seem simple at first but they're always surprising...
This AMS site offers electronic brochures that are intended to promote appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture.
A collection a beautifully drawn curves. Some take awhile to unfold, but they are worth waiting for.
|The Poly Pages|
This site provides extensive information on the various polyforms: poly-ominoes, -iamonds, -hexes, -cubes etc.
An on-line version of Edwin Abbott's famous novel: Flatland, A romance of many dimensions. This is a geometrical story about a two-dimensional square who visits one- and three-dimensional worlds.
A page dedicated to the symmetries of "lenses," equilateral hexagons that you can explore with Jorge's nice lens puzzle applet. See also his Equilateral Pentagons and Polyominoids pages.
More on Pi! This site allows you to search the first four billion binary digits of Pi for a string... Try your phone number.
This site does a great job of introducing the complex topic of cryptography--an increasingly important field in today's world of computers and the Internet. (Winner of the Sci-Tech Web award 2002).
