Ingenuity in mathematics by
Ross Honsberger(
Book
)
46 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The nineteen essays here illustrate many different aspects of mathematical thinking. The author is very wellknown for his bestselling books of problems; in this volume he seeks to share his appreciation of the elegant and ingenious approaches used in thinking about even elementary mathematics. Standard high school courses in algebra and geometry furnish a sufficient basis for understanding each essay. Topics include number theory, geometry, combinatorics, logic and probability, and the methods used often involve an interaction between these disciplines. Some of the essays are easy to read, others more challenging; some of the exercises are routine, others lead the reader deeper into the subject

Mathematical chestnuts from around the world by
Ross Honsberger(
Book
)
10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 526 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.
