Description

Mathematical Delights is a collection of 90 short elementary gems from algebra, geometry, combinatorics, and number theory. Ross Honsberger presents us with some surprising results, brilliant ideas, and beautiful arguments in mathematics, written in his wonderfully lucid style. The book is a mathematical entertainment to be read at a leisurely pace. High school mathematics should equip the reader to handle the problems presented in the book. The topics are entirely independent and can be read in any order. A useful set of indices helps the reader locate topics in the text. Ross Honsberger has published thirteen best-selling books with the Mathematical Association of America including: Mathematical Diamonds, Mathematical Chestnuts from Around the World, From Erdos to Kiev and Ingenuity in Mathematics.
