http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78198
This site is the parent site of an extensive collection of interactive mathematics authored by Alexander Bogomolny and includes an interactive monthly column . The content is accessible to the casual reader but offers much depth along with links to other high-quality resources. Altogether, this site is a mathematician's delight.Interactive Mathematics--Games and Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78195
This site contains an extensive collection of games and puzzles in the form of java applets including Nim, the Tower of Hanoi, Cryptarithms, Latin Squares, and much more. Written by Alexander Bogomolny, these applets are designed to engage the reader in interactive investigations. Background material is provided and the site serves as an excellent educational resource.Interactive Mathematics--Arithmetic/Algebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78197
This site contains an extensive collection of java applets involving arithmetic and algebra miscellany and puzzles. Written by Alexander Bogomolny, these applets are designed to engage the reader in interactive investigations. Background material is provided and the site serves as an excellent educational resource.Easier Fibonacci Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84511
A collection of puzzles whose answers involve the Fibonacci numbers. The puzzles are of two types: easier and harder; the goal is to explain WHY the puzzles have their respective answers. A link to the page containing the harder puzzles is provided. This site is a sub-page of the larger site, Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section.The Hot Game of Nim
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79238
This is the May 2001 version of Alexander Bogomolny's "Cut The Knot!" column. It discusses the game of Nim and variants. Featured are interactive Java applets and a wealth of links to related web sites.Wythoff's Nim
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79186
Wythoff?s Nim is a sub-page of Alexander Bogomolny?s Cut The Knot! site reviewed elsewhere in MERLOT; in particular, it is a sub-page of the Games and Puzzles section of the site. This page includes a java applet embodying a two-player strategy game that involves cornering a queen on a chessboard of sorts. An accompanying strategy analysis by Martin Gardner reveals that this game is isomorphic to Wythoff?s Nim, a version of the famous game of Nim. The recursively determined winning strategy is then analyzed as a set of numerical sequences with very deep and interesting results.Nick's Mathematical Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82017
A collection of puzzles ranging over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. Hints are provided, along with fully worked solutions, and links to related mathematical topics.When will I use math?
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=421510
This site is designed to answer many important questions regarding carrers and professional placement of math majors. It contains very useful statistical data on the subject as well as information on different connections between mathematics and real life. The site can be very useful for all kinds of professional orientation sessions for math majors.Harder Fibonacci Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84512
A collection of puzzles whose answers involve the Fibonacci numbers. The puzzles are of two types: easier and harder; the goal is to explain WHY the puzzles have their respective answers. A link to the page containing the easier puzzles is provided. This site is a sub-page of the larger site, Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section.World of Mathematics--Recreational Mathematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76722
This is a sub-page of the large and comprehensive Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics site which is separately reviewed elsewhere on MERLOT. At the time of review this recreational mathematics area listed ten subtopics including: cryptograms, dissection, illusions, magic squares, and puzzles. A total of approximately 140 separate recreational mathematics items were included.
