The Mathematical Poetry of a Puzzle Artist: Barry R. Clarke As Mr. Clarke notes in the introduction, his reasons for this puzzle compilation included the pure enjoyment of creating logical and mathematical art.

If you view mathematics as a form of poetry, you will certainly enjoy this opportunity to learn from a mathematical wizard. Brain Busters! is indeed a "mind-stretching" experience, one that allows you to see the way Barry's imagination is captured in a distinctly unique manner in each of his puzzles. His mathematical imagination is the communality that runs through each puzzle, but at the same time it is his creative touch that serves as the specificity, giving great variation to this excellent and enjoyable work. ...

Editorial Review Product Description Enter the wonderful world of Pymm, a land where you have to depend on your math skills to survive. In Pymm you're surrounded by friendly elves, minotaurs, kings, and wizards, but you must also fight the fearful hobgoblins, dreaded dragons, winged cats and other assorted monsters, especially the strange, repulsive creatures known as glubs, those terrible beasts of Pymm who just love to eat humans. You'll need the help of the Spirit of the Great Dragon Slayers, because you're about to face nearly 80 fiendish number challenges. Some are easy, some are hard, but all are exciting and all are fun. Start by figuring out which Knight of the Golden Sword has slain more glubs. Then try to calculate the weight of Alaranthus, the baby dragon who weighed 1,000 pounds plus 2/3 of his own weight. Count the number of winged cats, and find the cost of candy in this magical country. Read the story of a wizards' competition, and do the mathematics behind a series of magical transformations. If you really get in trouble, just head to the hints section for a little help.96 pages, 50 b/w illus., 5 3/8 x 8 1/4. |
