EASIER THAN YOU THINK...

Puzzles and Humour

I like mathematical puzzles (and mathematical humour).

They provide intellectual challenges and mental stimulation. They also help the puzzler to learn and develop good problem-solving techniques. These techniques can sometimes be used when solving strategy problems in real life and can certainly be used in other mathematical pursuits. I have hundreds, and possibly thousands, of puzzles to share with you. This represents a small start!

I have decided to bundle them in groups of twenty:

CCM Puzzle Collection #001 ~ Puzzles 001-020

  • Three Switches and a Light
  • A Knockout Tennis Competition
  • Covering a Modified Chessboard With Dominoes

  • Which Shape is MOST Different?
  • Riding a Falling Ladder
  • Divide an Obtuse-Angled Triangle into Seven Acute-Angled Triangles
  • Divide a Square into Ten Acute-Angled Triangles

 

I attend university in the US and am starting the more difficult math courses. I have never studied and managed to stumble along for a very long time and now I have no idea what I am doing. I can follow along with lecture and understand what they are saying but when left on my own I have no clue what to do and where to start. So I’ve recommitted to start over and build a solid foundation. Looking around youtube alot I have found some good quick fix stuff but man I am converted to Graeme Hendersen. I really appreciate your very thorough approach to learning and can’t get enough of your explaining mathematical concepts. I am eating up everything and am excited to master math. Man, I sound super nerdy but it’s true. Thanks
