An old favorite--Mensa Math & Logic Puzzles--gets a brand-new look: it's now in color! And the puzzles are fantastic: they're the kind of challenge found at the World Puzzle Championships, and they require no language to solve. For example, you are given a grid of dots that has some numbers (0, 1, 2, or 3) in them. You need to connect the dots in one continuous path so that each number is surrounded by that many lines. So a "3" means that three of the four sides around it must be connected. All the puzzles are similar abstract exercises, and all have unique solutions that can be reached using pure logic. They're difficult--and really satisfying exercise for your brain.

Finally, if you like to challenge yourself, try solving each puzzle in less than half an hour, which is the average time spent on games of wit of this sort. With each game you will find a surprise. Sometimes a game of wit is solved with pure logic. Others will seem to require advanced mathematical knowledge to solve, however in reality only a bit of lateral thinking will be necessary, while in others, you will have to work a little harder and dust off your mathematical knowledge. You will find the following types of puzzles and logical problems: Lateral thinking: challenges that are seemingly impossible or require a lot of mathematical knowledge, but which really conceal a solution outside the box (in an indirect or creative way). Logical thinking: challenges that must be solved with logic, making inferences until finding the solution or, sometimes, eliminating the other alternatives. Mathematical knowledge: it will be necessary to know mathematical (and sometimes physical) principles to solve certain puzzles. Paper and pencil: challenges in which drawing schemes is necessary to reach the solution of certain mental games (although the most daring will continue to solve them in the head only). Spatial vision: challenges in which one must be able to imagine figures that are intertwined in two or three dimensions.

Alex im Wunderland der Zahlen

Eine Reise durch die aufregende Welt der Mathematik

Author: Alex Bellos

Publisher: eBook Berlin Verlag

ISBN: 3827078083

Category: Mathematics

Page: 480

View: 4929

Erinnern wir uns nicht alle mit Schrecken an die ratlosen Momente vor der Tafel im Matheunterricht? Mit Kurvendiskussionen und Dreisatz dürften jedenfalls nur wenige Spaß und Spannung verbinden... Bis jetzt! Denn nun wagt sich Alex Bellos in den Kaninchenbau der Mathematik: in das Reich von Geometrie und Algebra, von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Statistik und logischen Paradoxa. Auf der anderen Seite des Erdballs, am Amazonas, zählen die Mitglieder des Indianerstammes der Munduruku nur bis fünf und halten die Vorstellung, dass dies nicht genügen solle, für reichlich lächerlich. Bei uns in Deutschland dagegen finden jährlich die Meisterschaften der besten Kopfrechner der Welt statt - 2010 wurde in Magdeburg eine elfjährige Inderin zur Nummer eins unter den "Mathleten" gekürt. Die Mathe-Weltmeisterin unter den Tieren ist hingegen die Schimpansin Ai, die Alex Bellos im japanischen Inuyama aufspürt und über deren Rechenkünste er nur staunen kann. Auch wenn er von den bahnbrechenden Überlegungen Euklids erzählt oder erklärt, warum man in Japan seine Visitenkarten keinesfalls zu Dodekaedern falten sollte - Bellos führt uns durch das wahrhaft erstaunliche Reich der Zahlen und bringt uns eine komplexe Wissenschaft spielerisch nahe. Mit seiner Mischung aus spannender Reportage, Wissenschaftsgeschichte und mathematischen Kabinettstückchen erbringt er souverän den Beweis, dass die Gleichung Mathematik = Langeweile eindeutig nicht wahr ist. Quod erat demonstrandum.
