Ingenuity in mathematics by Ross Honsberger( Book )

23 editions published between 1970 and 1998 in English and Chinese and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sit with this book for half to three-quarters of an hour and you will have mastered an elegant and pleasing bit of mathematics. Nineteen independent essays on topics including number theory, geometry, combinatorics, logic, and probability. The nineteen essays contained in this volume are independent of one another; they represent many different aspects of mathematical thinking. Standard high school courses in algebra and geometry furnish a sufficient basis for understanding each essay. The Topics treated in this volume include number theory, geometry, combinatorics, logic, probability; and the methods used often involve an interaction of these various disciplines. Some essays are easy to read, others are more challenging; some exercises are routine, others led the reader deeper into the subject

Episodes in nineteenth and twentieth century Euclidean geometry by Ross Honsberger( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euclidean geometry was worked out by Euclid and his predecessors more than 2300 years ago and is studied today mostly as a background to other branches of mathematics. In fact, however, as Professor Honsberger masterfully demonstrates, geometry in the style of Euclid is still alive and well. Mathematicians have again been studying the properties of geometric figures from a synthetic point of view and have discovered many new and unexpected results which Euclid himself never found. And since all of us have studied Euclidean geometry, at least the ancient version, this book is easily accessible. Exercises with their solutions are included in the book

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

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 527 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
