Edited by Alex (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam) van den Brandhof, Jan Guichelaar, Arnout Jaspers

Part of the Spectrum series

Paperback / softback

Description

Founded in 1961 and still thriving today, the recreational magazine Pythagoras has given generations of high school students in the Netherlands a perspective on many branches of mathematics that are not taught in schools.

This book is a selection of the best and most inspiring articles from Pythagoras magazine.

It contains a mix of problems - some easy, some challenging, always original - as well as playful introductions to subjects in algebra, geometry, topology, number theory, and more.

Concepts like sudoku and the magic square are given a whole new dimension.

Articles on Escher's 'impossible objects', a recurring subject over the years, are part of a special section on mathematics and art.

Smart high school students and anyone else with a sharp and inquisitive mind will find in this book a treasure trove rich enough to keep one's mind engaged for many weeks and months.
