         THROUGH MAZES TO MATHEMATICS - Tony Phillips 

Mazes that have a complete mathematical description. Classes 
can build their own labyrinth using nesting segments on the
number line. Examples and calculations focus on the simple,
alternating transit (s.a.t.) maze, and on exploring the 
relation between mazes and and mathematics. Count the number 
of different n-level s.a.t. mazes, see the Cretan maze drawn
as a game, learn other facts about maze numbers, and find 
print citations of mathematical research into mazes. Don't
miss his page, "How did I get interested in counting mazes?"

Satellite (Circular), and Hexagonal mazes; Hidden Picture
Octomazes, and Number Place and Wiggle Word puzzles.
