The contest problem book; problems from the annual high school contests of the Mathematical Association of America by Charles T Salkind( Book )

56 editions published between 1961 and 1983 in English and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The annual high school contests have been sponsored since 1950 by the Mathematical Association of America and the Society of Actuaries, and later by Mu Alpha Theta (1965), the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (1967) and the Casulty Actuarial Society (1971). Problems from the contests during the period 1950-1960 are published in Volume 5 of the New Mathematical Library, and those for the 1961-1965 are published in Volume 17. The New Mathematical Library will continue to publish these contest problems from time-to-time; the present volume contains those from the period 1966-1972. The questions were compiled by Professor C.T. Salkind until his death, and since 1968 by Professor J.M. Earl,. In preparing this and the earlier Contest Problem Books the editors of the NML have expanded these solutions and added alternative solutions

Counterexamples in calculus by Sergiy Klymchuk( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counterexamples in Calculus serves as a supplementary resource to enhance the learning experience in single variable calculus courses. This book features carefully constructed incorrect mathematical statements that require students to create counterexamples to disprove them. Methods of producing these incorrect statements vary. At times the converse of a well-known theorem is presented. In other instances crucial conditions are omitted or altered or incorrect definitions are employed
Charming proofs : a journey into elegant mathematics by Claudi Alsina( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theorems and their proofs lie at the heart of mathematics. In speaking of the purely aesthetic qualities of theorems and proofs, G.H. Hardy wrote that in beautiful proofs 'there is a very high degree of unexpectedness, combined with inevitability and economy'. Charming Proofs present a collection of remarkable proofs in elementary mathematics that are exceptionally elegant, full of ingenuity, and succinct. By means of a surprising argument or a powerful visual representation, the proofs in this collection will invite readers to enjoy the beauty of mathematics, to share their discoveries with others, and to become involved in the process of creating new proofs. Charming Proofs is organized as follows. Following a short introduction about proofs and the process of creating proofs, the authors present, in twelve chapters, a wide and varied selection of proofs they consider charming, Topics include the integers, selected real numbers, points in the plane, triangles, squares, and other polygons, curves, inequalities, plane tilings, origami, colorful proofs, three-dimensional geometry, etc. At the end of each chapter are some challenges that will draw the reader into the process of creating charming proofs. There are over 130 such challenges. Charming Proofs concludes with solutions to all of the challenges, references, and a complete index. As in the authors' previous books with the MAA (Math Made Visual and When Less Is More), secondary school and college and university teachers may wish to use some of the charming proofs in their classrooms to introduce their students to mathematical elegance. Some may wish to use the book as a supplement in an introductory course on proofs, mathematical reasoning, or problem solving."--Publisher's description
Graph theory : a problem oriented approach by Daniel A Marcus( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Graph Theory presents a natural, reader-friendly way to learn some of the essential ideas of graph theory starting from first principles. The format is similar to the companion text, Combinatorics: A Problem Oriented Approach also by Daniel A. Marcus, in that it combines the features of a textbook with those of a problem workbook. The material is presented through a series of approximately 360 strategically placed problems with connecting text. This is supplemented by 280 additional problems that are intended to be used as homework assignments. Concepts of graph theory are introduced, developed, and reinforced by working through leading questions posed in the problems. This problem-oriented format is intended to promote active involvement by the reader while always providing clear direction. This approach figures prominently on the presentation of proofs, which become more frequent and elaborate as the book progresses. Arguments are arranged in digestible chunks and always appear along with concrete examples to keep the readers firmly grounded in their motivation. Spanning tree algorithms, Euler paths, Hamilton paths and cycles, planar graphs, independence and covering, connections and obstructions, and vertex and edge colorings make up the core of the book. Hall's Theorem, the Konig-Egervary Theorem, Dilworth's Theorem and the Hungarian algorithm to the optional assignment problem, matrices, and Latin squares are also explored."--Back cover
An episodic history of mathematics : mathematical culture through problem solving by Steven G Krantz( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Episodic History of Mathematics delivers a series of snapshots of mathematics and mathematicians from ancient times to the twentieth century. Giving readers a sense of mathematical culture and history, the book also acquaints readers with the nature and techniques of mathematics via exercises. It introduces the genesis of key mathematical concepts. For example, while Krantz does not get into the intricate mathematical details of Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, he does describe some of the streams of thought that posed the problem and led to its solution. The focus in this text, moreover, is on doing - getting involved with the mathematics and solving problems. Every chapter ends with a detailed problem set that will provide students with avenues for exploration and entry into the subject. It recounts the history of mathematics; offers broad coverage of the various schools of mathematical thought to give readers a wider understanding of mathematics; and includes exercises to help readers engage with the text and gain a deeper understanding of the material."--Publisher's description

The beauty of fractals : six different views by Denny Gulick( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the coming of the computer age, fractals have emerged to play a significant role in art images, scientific application and mathematical analysis. The Beauty of Fractals is in part an exploration of the nature of fractals, including examples which appear in art, and in part a close look at famous classical fractals and their close relatives. The final essay examines the relationship between fractals and differential equations. The essays that appear in The Beauty of Fractals contain perspectives different enough to give the reader an appreciation of the breadth of the subject. The essays are self-contained and expository, and are intended to be accessible to a broad audience that includes advanced undergraduate students and teachers at both university and secondary-school level. The book is also a useful complement to the material on fractals which can be found in textbooks
