Cut the Knot: Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles
Dr. Alexander Bogomolny, a former associate math professor at the University of Iowa, describes the reason for his collection of interactive math puzzles: “Without going into research and speculations as to what causes math anxiety I hope to create a resource that would help learn, if not math itself, then, at least, ways to appreciate its beauty.” For middle-school and high- school students, there are algebra, geometry, and probability puzzles, along with dozens of other categories such as Visual Illusions and Analog Gadgets.
