Les énigmes mathématiques de Nick
Welcome to my selection of mathematical puzzles. What's new? See puzzle 160. The math puzzles presented here are selected for the deceptive simplicity of their statement, or the elegance of their solution. They range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, trigonometry, and logic. All require a certain ingenuity, but usually only pre-college math. Explaining how an answer is arrived at is more important than the answer itself. Each puzzle is assigned a level of difficulty of between one and four stars, with four being the most difficult. The source for each problem is given at the bottom of the solution page. I welcome feedback of any kind. Some brief biographical information.

Mysterious number 6174 March 2006 Anyone can uncover the mystery The number 6174 is a really mysterious number. At first glance, it might not seem so obvious. But as we are about to see, anyone who can subtract can uncover the mystery that makes 6174 so special. Kaprekar's operation In 1949 the mathematician D. It is a simple operation, but Kaprekar discovered it led to a surprising result. When we reach 6174 the operation repeats itself, returning 6174 every time. We reached 6174 again! A very mysterious number... When we started with 2005 the process reached 6174 in seven steps, and for 1789 in three steps. Only 6174? The digits of any four digit number can be arranged into a maximum number by putting the digits in descending order, and a minimum number by putting them in ascending order. 9 ≥ a ≥ b ≥ c ≥ d ≥ 0 and a, b, c, d are not all the same digit, the maximum number is abcd and the minimum is dcba. which gives the relations for those numbers where a>b>c>d. For three digit numbers the same phenomenon occurs. and

Search Looking Back and Moving Forward Pre-K-2, 3-5, 9-12 This final lesson of the unit reviews the work of the previous lessons through a variety of activity stations, one of which involves using an interactive graphing tool. Students model with buttons and record addition and subtraction. Counting Embedded Figures Students look for patterns within given data and form generalizations for the problem, thereby sharpening the algebraic skills of the students. Building Connections This lesson focuses on having students make connections among different classes of polynomial functions by exploring the graphs of the functions. Counting Embedded Figures This grades 7-12 activity allows students to look for patterns within the given data. Explorations with Chance In this lesson, students analyze the fairness of certain games by examining the probabilities of the outcomes. Exploring Linear Data Students model linear data in a variety of settings that range from car repair costs to sports to medicine.

Women Mathematicians, Sponsored by Agnes Scott College Welcome to the web site for biographies of women in mathematics. These pages are part of an on-going project at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Georgia, to illustrate the numerous achievements of women in the field of mathematics. Here you can find biographical essays or comments on the women mathematicians profiled on this site, as well as additional resources about women in mathematics. We also welcome contributions of biographical information or essays from those outside Agnes Scott College. Did you know? The AWM Research Symposium 2015 will be held at the University of Maryland, College Park, April 11-12, 2015. AWM Biographies Contest To increase awareness of women's ongoing contributions to the mathematical sciences, the Association for Women in Mathematics sponsors an essay contest for biographies of contemporary women mathematicians and statisticians in academic, industrial, and government careers.
