Mathematical chestnuts from around the world by Ross Honsberger( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From time to time great pleasure is to be had in taking a break from our own mathematical activities to get acquainted with the engaging work of others; and how gratifying it is that mathematics doesn't have to be difficult or advanced to be ingenious and beautiful. In this miscellaneous collection of elementary gems you will encounter brilliant insights from many fine mathematical minds. It is remarkable how much exciting mathematics exists at the elementary level. These essays are presented solely for your pleasure. No attempt is made to give formal instruction; in the few places where preliminaries are presented, it is done so only in preparation for a gem to follow. While a certain degree of concentration is required for the appreciation of some of these delights, this book aims to provide the reader with relaxing enjoyment; it's meant to be mathematical entertainment, not a collection of exacting studies. -- Publisher description
In Pólya's footsteps : miscellaneous problems and essays by Ross Honsberger( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics is often studied with an air of such seriousness that it doesn't always seem to be much fun. However, it is quite amazing how many surprising results and brilliant arguments one is in a position to enjoy with just a high school background. This is a book of miscellaneous delights, presented not in an attempt to instruct but as a harvest of rewards that are due to good high school students and, of course, those more advanced - their teachers and everyone in the university mathematics community. A half dozen essays are sprinkled among some hundred problems. Many subjects are represented - combinatorics, geometry, number theory, algebra, probability. The sections may be read in any order. The book concludes with twenty-five exercises and their detailed solutions. Something to delight will be found in every section - a surprising result, an intriguing approach, a stroke of ingenuity - and the leisurely pace and generous explanations make the book a pleasure to read
