Thoughtful Gifts for Curious People
This playful book for recreational maths readers uses a series of games to show how mathematics can solve problems that are, apparently, unsolvable. How do you tell what colour your hat is when you can only see everyone else's? How do you find your ID card when the cards have been randomly distributed amongst 20 different boxes? These games will allow anyone with at least a secondary school level of maths to experience the joy of mathematical discovery for themselves.
