Mathematical Games and Recreations - MacTutor Math History Archives Number games, geometrical puzzles, network problems and combinatorial problems by famous mathematicians, starting around B.C. and continuing on to the present, with links to biographies of mathematicians who invented the games, pictures, and graphs. MATH Mathematics of Games and Puzzles. 3 hr.; 3 cr. Prereq.: Two years of calculus or permission of instructor. Elements of game theory. Analysis of puzzles such as weighing problems, mazes, Instant Insanity, magic squares, paradoxes, etc. May not be credited toward the Master of Arts degree in Mathematics. level. MATH

First came the parked car puzzle which was set as a test for primary school children in Hong Kong but many adults still found tricky to solve. Then came Cheryl's birthday, set for 15 to year-olds in Singapore but seemingly impossible for anyone to finally this week came the rod and string conundrum which stumped 96 per cent of top maths students in the US when it first appeared. MATH Introduction to Mathematical Thought 3 Credits. Meaning, content, and methods of mathematical thought illustrated by topics that may be chosen from number theory, abstract algebra, combinatorics, finite or nonEuclidean geometries, game theory, mathematical logic, set theory.

A book that should be read by everyone in mathematics regardless of level is Wolfe's A Tour Through Mathematical Logic. It's simply a compulsory read, I couldn't put it down. It gives a broad overview of mathematical logic and set theory along with its history, and it is absolutely beautifully written. That's the best place for anyone to begin. The Math Forum's Internet Math Library is a comprehensive catalog of Web sites and Web pages relating to the study of mathematics. This page contains sites relating to Problems/Puzzles.

Algebraic number theory involves using techniques from (mostly commutative) algebra and ﬁnite group theory to gain a deeper understanding of number ﬁelds. The main objects that we study in algebraic number theory are number ﬁelds, rings of integers of number ﬁelds, unit groups, ideal class groups,norms, traces.

systems to high school algebra students. Once they realize they can solve this puzzle, they see that they can solve a linear system of equations.

•There are 5 different puzzles, but two types: oEasy (where there is at least one row that has 3 of a kind, allowing you to solve for. The purpose of this booklet is to give you a number of exercises on proposi-tional, ﬁrst order and modal logics to complement the topics and exercises covered during the lectures of the course on mathematical logic.

This book is well-written and the bibliography excellent, declared Mathematical Reviews of John Knopfmacher's innovative study. The three-part treatment applies classical analytic number theory to a wide variety of mathematical subjects not usually treated in an arithmetical way.

The first. InGarey&Johnson published the classic work: Computers and Intractability: A Guide to the Theory of NP-Completeness. It’s a fantastic book, that every Computer Scientist should own.

The first half of the book describes the theory of NP-Completeness, and shows methods to prove problems NP-Complete. The book goes way beyond a collection of puzzles, in that Gardner really provides an overview of mathematics concepts involved and goes beyond the simple solution of the puzzle to give the reader a sense of particular concepts in mathematics (e.g., topology).Reviews: This is a book about discrete mathematics which also discusses mathematical rea-soning and logic.

Many problems are optimization problems, which require that some value be minimized (e.g., finding shortest paths) or maximized (e.g., finding longest paths). Explore how algebra works and why it matters, and build a strong foundation of skills across many algebra topics including equations, rates, ratios, and sequences.

By the end of this course, you’ll know both traditional algebraic techniques and many unique problem-solving approaches that aren’t typically covered in school. You'll also improve your algebraic intuition and hone your. Algebra and Number Theory is an excellent book for courses on linear algebra, abstract algebra, and number theory at the upper-undergraduate level.

It is also a valuable reference for researchers working in different fields of mathematics, computer science, and engineering as well as for individuals preparing for a career in mathematics education.
