Amusements in Mathematics
This classic book, written in 1917 is still fun today! There are over 400 puzzles and their solutions for you to ponder and solve.
Take your time, have fun, and be sure to book mark this site and visit often!
Some of the puzzles use British terminology when referring to money, so there is a Currency Clarification page for reference.
You will find puzzles are listed alphabetically by name, or by the name of their maker, on the Puzzles List page.
The Puzzles Category page lists puzzles according to type. Examples are mazes, magic square puzzles, chessboard problems, math problems and more.
Don't worry, you can find the Solutions to the puzzles too. (No fair peeking ahead of time :-)
Last, but not least, you may want to take a minute to read what the author, Henry Ernest Dudendy, had to say when this was first published in 1917. Little did he know (or did he?) it would still be so much fun 91 years later!!
