"The Magic of Math is the math book you wish you had in school. Using a delightful assortment of examplesfrom ice cream scoops and poker hands to measuring mountains and making magic squaresthis book empowers you to see the beauty, simplicity, and truly magical properties behind those formulas and equations that once left your head spinning. You'll learn the key ideas of classic areas of mathematics like arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, but you'll also have fun fooling around with Fibonacci numbers, investigating infinity, and marveling over mathematical magic tricks that will make you look like a math genius!"

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This course celebrates the sheer joy of mathematics, taught by a mathematician who is literally a magician with numbers. Professor Arthur T. Benjamin of Harvey Mudd College is renowned for his feats of mental calculation performed before audiences at schools, theaters, museums, conferences, and other venues. Although racing a calculator to solve a difficult problem may seem like a superhuman achievement, Professor Benjamin shows that there are simple tricks that allow anyone to look like a math magician. Professor Benjamin has another goal in this course: throughout these lectures, he shows how everything in mathematics is connectedhow the beautiful and often imposing edifice that has given us algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, probability, and so much else is based on nothing more than fooling around with numbers"Publisher's web site

The fascinating world of graph theory by
Arthur Benjamin(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The fascinating world of graph theory goes back several centuries and revolves around the study of graphs  mathematical structures showing relations between objects. With applications in biology, computer science, transportation science, and other areas, graph theory encompasses some of the most beautiful formulas in mathematics  and some of its most famous problems. For example, what is the shortest route for a traveling salesman seeking to visit a number of cities in one trip? What is the least number of colors needed to fill in any map so that neighboring regions are always colored differently? Requiring readers to have a math background only up to high school algebra, this book explores the questions and puzzles that have been studied, and often solved, through graph theory. In doing so, the book looks at graph theory's development and the vibrant individuals responsible for the field's growth."Jacket

Discrete mathematics by
Arthur Benjamin(

)
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discrete mathematics is a subject thatwhile off the beaten trackhas vital applications in computer science, cryptography, engineering, and problem solving of all types. Discrete mathematics deals with quantities that can be broken into neat little pieces, like pixels on a computer screen, the letters or numbers in a password, or directions on how to drive from one place to another. Like a digital watch, discrete mathematics is that in which numbers proceed one at a time, resulting in fascinating mathematical results using relatively simple means, such as counting. This course delves into three of Discrete Mathematics most important fields: Combinatorics (the mathematics of counting), Number theory (the study of the whole numbers), and Graph theory (the relationship between objects in the most abstract sense). Professor Benjamin presents a generous selection of problems, proofs, and applications for the wide range of subjects and foci that are Discrete Mathematics

)
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This course takes a mathematical approach to playing games and solving puzzles. In this course, you will be introduced to all kinds of games, from games of pure strategy (like chess) to games of pure luck (like many casino games) to games that mix strategy and luck (like blackjack, backgammon, and poker). You will analyze puzzles that have stumped people for centuries to modern favorites like sudoku and Rubik's Cube. You will improve your ability to play these games and solve these puzzles, but you will also learn some interesting mathematics along the way

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This course aims to show how mathematics  from the simplest notions of numbers and counting to the more complex ideas of calculus, imaginary numbers, and infinity  is indeed a great source of joy. This course covers the highlights of the traditional high school mathematics curriculum of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, but it also introduces surprising features of the numbers 9, pi, i, and e; the Fibonacci numbers, and the numbers in Pascal's triangle. Two lectures explore probability and applications to games of chance, and the course concludes with a lecture on the joy of mathematical magic
