The tradition of a publication based on the Gathering for Gardner continues with this new carefully selected and edited collection in which Martin Gardner and friends inspire and entertain. The contributors to this volume—virtually a list of Who’s Who in the World of Puzzles—trace their inspiration to Martin Gardner’s puzzle column in Scientific American and to his contributions to the world of recreational mathematics. Tribute to a Mathemagician contains an author index for the two previous books in the collection of books based on the Gatherings for Gardner. Sample puzzles and games include: – Tripos – Black Jack – Chinese ceramic puzzle vessels – Paper folding – Mongolian interlocking puzzles – Rolling block puzzles – Sliding puzzles – Cryptic crosswords – The Panex puzzle – Polyonimo puzzles – and more.
MoMath was proud to present Erik Demaine as the speaker for our March, 2011 Math Encounters event.
