In this section I state the four principles that inform the discussion above. History is unavoidable. We work out in the present from the past, whether we like it or by:

The first part of the book introduces games, puzzles and mathematical recreations, including knight tours on a chessboard. The second part explains how thinking about playing games can mirror the thinking of a mathematician, using scientific investigation, tactics and strategy, and sharp observation.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate this is NOT about astrology, but mathematics, and it is very, very good. Rouse Ball was very well known.

One difficult nut it helped me to crack is why it is not possible to solve the quintic eq (and higher) using roots etc. It avoids the swarm of jargon which later mathematicians attached to much of what can be put simply.5/5(1).

Challenges in Geometry is one of them, and it is in a class by itself. I would qualify it as 'a bit excentric'. Let me remind you that olympiads are for (talented) high school pupils/5(2).
