Follow the hour hand and minute hand of a clock for 24 hours. How many times do they form a right angle? Timothy's house has several rooms, each of which has an even number of doors, including doors that lead outside. Is the number of outside doors even or odd? Stimulating and delightful, this collection of puzzles features original and classic brainteasers. The author, a puzzle columnist for Le Monde, specially selected these mind-benders for the widest possible audience, ensuring that they're neither too hard for those without a math background nor too easy for the mathematically adept. All puzzles are clearly stated and accurately answered at the back of the book ― and they're great fun to consider, whether you crack them or not. Includes a Foreword by Martin Gardner.

This practical book leads the way in secondary mathematics instruction with unique enrichment units, technology updates, and a highly readable style. It provides step-by step techniques on preparing lessons and tests, motivating students, designing assignments, and organizing the classroom. Also included are " hands-on" activities enrichment units, teaching strategies, and pre- and post-tests that are cross-referenced to methods presented earlier in the text. Explores the use of technology, with special emphasis on the application and uses of the Geometer's Sketchpad software program. Also updates the graphics calculator's application in the classroom and includes extensive references to the World Wide Web. Provides a more detailed discussion of problem-solving strategies, in a particularly strong chapter on problem solving, which reflects the mandate that problem solving, be one of the prime concerns for mathematics instruction today.

Games are an exciting part of any constructivist mathematics program, and Wakefield makes them easier to incorporate in the classroom. The more than twenty-five games, developed by teachers, are easy to assemble and beautifully illustrated with original drawings. Help your young children engage in active inquiry into problem solving and number concepts. As Wakefield says, Let the games begin

This new book, organized by editors representing a wide degree of interests in dynamic games, is aimed at control engineers, applied mathematicians, operations research specialists, and research workers. It contains survey papers on such diverse topics as pursuit-evasion games, viscosity solutions, gambling theory, discounted stochastic games, optimal routing, numerical methods, and others. The volume consists of two parts, with the first dealing with zero-sum differential games and numerical methods, and the second with stochastic and nonzero-sum games, and applications. Topics and Features: state-of-the-art surveys, new results, and algorithms. viscosity solutions. gambling theory and stochastic games. optimal routing. viability kernel algorithm and discriminating kernal algorithm. Researchers, professionals and advanced graduate students will find the book an essential resource for current work in dynamic games and applications.
